Nidoran -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Nidoran Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nidoran female from the Primal Clash set.  Nidoran is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Nidoran does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Scratch, this move requires one colorless energy card to use and does 10 damage.  Nidoran's second move is called Bite, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nidorina is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Nidorina and a stage 2 evolution in Nidoqueen, there are two of them in this set, which I'll be reviewing the next three days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, this card could definitely be used in a deck as a starter type Pokemon.  You could even use up to 4 of this card just to make sure you can start the game with this card in the active Pokemon spot.  This card is not only quick on the attack but it can do up to 20 damage per turn, has an average HP, and a low retreat cost.  So if you're looking for a solid starter Pokemon for your psychic type deck, look no further than this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very solid Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set and one that should be used as a starter type Pokemon in most psychic type decks.  There isn't one thing that I dislike about this card, it has an average HP, low retreat cost, and two average, but very solid moves, so you can't ask for much better from a card you'll only want to use at the beginning of the game to quickly do damage and give time to set up your benched Pokemon.  So again, if you're building a psychic type deck, give this card great consideration.
