Spheal 45/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Spheal Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spheal from the Primal Clash set.  This is the first of two consecutive reviews I'll be doing of Spheal.  Spheal is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Spheal does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Ball Roll, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin until you get tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spheal is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Sealeo and a stage 2 evolution in Walrein, which I'll be reviewing the next few days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, and I haven't even reviewed the second Spheal card from this set, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions or knowing which Spheal card is better.  So on its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason being that this card may end up doing no damage at all every single turn since the only move it has is a coin-flip based move.  So unless you are feeling especially lucky or you have to use this card with Walrein and Sealeo, do not use this card in a deck, otherwise you'll be in trouble putting two energy cards on Spheal and not being able to do any damage.  This card is pretty much a sitting duck in the active Pokemon spot.  Of course if you do use this card, the only thing you can do each turn is to use Ball Roll, and to increase your chances of getting a heads the first flip, you could always attach a Trick Coin trainer card to this Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  Even though this card has a good HP, and can possibly do major damage every single turn, I am giving this card my lowest rating because it does not have a move that will guarantee to do any damage, and to use a starter Pokemon like this one, and not be able to do any damage at all, will really affect your game very early on.  So if you're building a water type deck and are looking for a Basic Pokemon to use, look elsewhere from this Spheal card.
