Tentacool 70/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Tentacool Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tentacool from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two Tentacool cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Tentacool is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This Tentacool card does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that it has is called Lost in the Waves, for one colorless energy card, this move does 10 damage, when using this move you have to return Tentacool and all cards attached to it back into your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tentacool is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Tentacruel, which I'll be reviewing in two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet and I haven't even reviewed the second Tentacool card from this set yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution and I do not know which Tentacool card is better.  So, on its own, I can not recommend using this card in a deck.  Not only does it have a low HP and only one move, you can really only use this card one time before having it returned to your hand.  So if you wanted to use this card as a starter type Pokemon, you couldn't do it, since you would get one energy card on Tentacool, use Lost in the Waves, and have to retreat it back to your hand, then have to move a Pokemon from your bench, which isn't set up, into the active Pokemon spot.  So ideally, if you want to use Tentacool in your deck, you'll want to leave it on the bench and evolve it into Tentacruel.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Tentacruel, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card does have a decent move, energy cost wise, but of course having to move it back to your hand after attacking one time really makes this card unusable in my opinion.  So if you're a fan of Tentacool, I would try and use the second Tentacool card from this set which I'm reviewing tomorrow.
