Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sliggoo from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card set. Sliggoo is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Sliggoo does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Gooey, for one colorless energy card this move heals 30 damage from Sliggoo. Its second move is called Gentle Slap, and for three energy cards, one each of water, fairy, and colorless, this move does 40 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sliggoo is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Goomy into play (I reviewed Goomy from this set yesterday) and then evolve Goomy into Sliggoo. Sliggoo does have a stage 2 evolution in Goodra that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Sliggoo is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review of Goomy, you'll know that I though that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card. Even though it had two moves, the only move it could attack with required two energy cards, and it had a lower HP. So knowing this about Goomy and looking at this Sliggoo card, this Sliggoo card is almost the exact same as Goomy, just a little bit better moves because it is a Stage 1 card. This card has a move that can heal damage from Sliggoo just like Goomy, and then another move that requires a bit more energy that can do some damage. Because these cards are so similar and I did not like Goomy at all, I definitely don't like Sliggoo from this set and would not recommend using the first two Pokemon in this line at all, without Goodra. If you do want to use this line in your deck, don't use more than a 1-1 line of the two Pokemon, and get these cards into the active Pokemon spot early because they have a low HP, but can heal themselves.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a well below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set. Just like the previous Stage 1 dragon type card I reviewed from this set, this card is very poor. Besides having a low HP, and a very high retreat cost, neither move that this card is that good, and neither move warrants even consideration in using in a deck. So combined with Goomy from this set which I gave a 2 rating, they would get a 1 rating combined, stay away from these two cards if you can.
