Tangela -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Tangela Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tangela from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Tangela is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Tangela does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Absorb, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of colorless and grass, and does 20 damage, plus it heals 20 damage from Tangela.  Tangela's second move is called Vine Whip.  This move requires three energy cards to use, two grass and one colorless, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tangela is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Tangrowth, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, unless you really need one more Basic grass type Pokemon card in your deck, I would not recommend using this card.  Tangela does have a first good move which I would recommend using if you use this card in your deck.  I wouldn't recommend using this card because it is slow to attack and Vine Whip is a very poor move damage wise, doing much less damage than most Pokemon cards can do for 3 energy cards.  When I review Tangrowth tomorrow, if that card is good, this card would definitely be worthy to use with it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Tangrowth, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card does have a good HP, and one good move, but overall it isn't that great, since Vine Whip is a very poor move, it has a higher retreat cost, and is slow to attack.  So like I said previously, unless you're looking for one more grass type Basic Pokemon card, stay away from this card.
