Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Whiscash from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set. This is the first of two Whiscash cards I'll be reviewing consecutively. Whiscash is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. This Whiscash card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Amnesia, for one colorless energy card this move does 20 damage, plus this move disables one of your opponent's active Pokemon's attacks. Whiscash's second move is called Rising Lunge, this move requires three energy cards to use, one water and two colorless, and does 60 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin it does 30 more damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Whiscash is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Barboach into play (I reviewed Barboach from this set yesterday) and then evolve Barboach into Whiscash, there are actually two Whiscash cards from this set, and I'll be reviewing the second one tomorrow and then comparing the two. If you read yesterday's review of Barboach, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card mainly because it had a lower HP, and a high retreat cost, but the one move it did have, even though it required two energy cards to use, did above average damage. So knowing this about Barboach and looking at this Whiscash card, this is a card if you want to use it to attach a Trick Coin item to, that way you have a better chance at being able to do 90 damage a turn when using Rising Lunge. Because Barboach is a little slower to attack, I would evolve Barboach into Whiscash as soon as possible, then you can do the same amount of damage for one energy card less until you get 3 energy cards on Whiscash and can do at least 60 damage every turn. If I were building a water type deck, I would definitely consider using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family, it is definitely a solid line overall.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a slightly above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set. I am pretty high on this card other than its retreat cost. This card has a good HP, and two average to above average moves, so again if you are looking for a solid couple of cards to put into your deck, give Barboach and Whiscash from this set a run in your deck, together I would give them a 3 out of 5 rating.
