Barboach -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Barboach Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Barboach from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Barboach is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Barboach does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that it has is called Rain Splash, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Barboach is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Whiscash, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed either of those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I would definitely consider using one of these cards in a water type deck if you're in desperate need of a starter type Pokemon, I would then try to start the game off with Barboach in the active Pokemon spot, and then use Rain Splash every turn, being able to knock out most Basic Pokemon in two turns.  However, I would not use more than one of this card in a deck and possibly not use it at all because of its low HP, and the fact that the only move that this card does have requires two energy cards to use, thus making it a little slower later in games and easier to knock out with such a low HP.  So to summarize, this card could be used in a deck because of its above average move, but other than that, this card isn't very good, and I would not recommend using this one in a deck without using Whiscash.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Whiscash, this card a below average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, the one good thing on this card is the move Barboach has as it does above average damage, but other than that this card is pretty poor, thus the below average rating.  So if you're in search of a Basic, water type Pokemon card to use in your deck, this one could be considered because of its good move, but ultimately you'll find better cards than this one to use.

Barboach evolves at level 30.

Not that it needs to be said 13 times haha!

And i always thought a basic pokemon with the ability to evolve being able to do more than 10 damage is always a plus. 2 energy or not! If you get boach and rough seas first turn its 50 hp limit isnt so bad. and against the pyroar decks that are circulating you might just get a few early wins because of this fellow!
