Manaphy -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Manaphy Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Manaphy from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Manaphy is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Manaphy does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Deep Sea Swirl, this move requires one water energy card to use and allows you to shuffle your current hand into your deck and draw 6 new cards.  Manaphy's second move is called Life Saver, this move also requires one water energy card to use and allows you to put 2 water energy from your discard pile into your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Manaphy is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, this card is more like a powerful trainer card than a Pokemon card since both moves it has don't do any damage but affect your hand.  The only time I would use this card is if I had a card in my deck that I planned on using quite a bit that always discarded energy cards when attacking, you then could use that card for awhile, then move Manaphy into the active Pokemon spot and for only one energy card use Life Saver to get all of those discarded energy cards back into your hand.  Since this card is so limited in what it can do, I definitely wouldn't recommend using more than one of these in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card is pretty poor in that it cannot do any damage at all, instead both of the moves it has are like trainer cards.  So like I said in the previous section, unless you're using a card that discards a ton of energy, do not use this card in a deck.  The reason I gave this card a 2 rating instead of a 1 is because the card does have an above average HP, low retreat cost, and both moves, even though neither is that great, both are very quick to use only requiring one energy card.  So overall, there are definitely better water type Pokemon cards out there, and I would suggest using those other cards.

False, has never been a technical Rare Ultra (Full Art), nor an Ultra Rare (in the sense of Pokemon-ex, Pokemon LV. X, Pokemon LEGEND, Pokemon Prime or Pokemon EX). The highest rarity Manaphy's been was a Rare Holo.
