Chinchou -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Chinchou Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chinchou from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Chinchou is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Chinchou does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Wave Splash.  This move requires two energy cards to use, one each of water and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chinchou is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Lanturn, 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, this card could be used in a deck as a starter type Pokemon since it has an above average HP, and a solid move.  However, I would not be the biggest fan of using this card in a deck just because of how limited this card is, only having one move, and the only move it does have is slow for a starter type Pokemon, and can only do average damage.  But, if you're building a lightning type deck and need a starter type Pokemon, Lanturn wouldn't be the worst choice to use, you could easily use one of these in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Lanturn, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card definitely has some positives on it, like its high HP, and a move that does 20 damage, but overall this card just isn't that great, requiring two energy cards to attack, and requiring those same two energy cards to retreat.  So to summarize, you can definitely do better than by using Chinchou in your deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Chinchou from the Primal Clash set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Chinchou's stage 1 evolution Lanturn, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
