Girafarig -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Girafarig Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Girafarig from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Girafarig is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 90, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Girafarig does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move that this card has is called Tackle, for two colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage.  Girafarig's second move is called Psybite, for three colorless energy cards, this move does 50 damage plus 30 more damage if this card has any psychic energy attached to it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Girafarig is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, if you want to use this card in a deck, make sure to use it in a Psychic type deck so you can do 80 damage a turn with Psybite.  Other than that, this card is pretty good as a starter type Pokemon, it is just a little slow, but with a high HP, you can make up for that slowness.  So I could see myself using 1 or 2 of these in a psychic type deck as a starter type Pokemon, either getting this card into the active Pokemon spot right away, doing Tackle First then Psybite after, or setting up Girafarig on the bench and then getting three energy cards on it before moving it to the active Pokemon spot.  Even though this card can do 80 damage a turn for three energy cards, it won't cost you that much to retreat it, so don't be afraid to use it later in the game too.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly above average Basic Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  Other than being a bit slow to attack, this card has all positives on it, it has a high HP, low retreat cost, and two average to above average moves.  So if you're looking for a very strong Basic Pokemon card to use in your deck, I would definitely consider using this one, especially if you're building a Psychic type deck.
