Tynamo -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Tynamo Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tynamo from the Primal Clash set.  Tynamo is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Tynamo does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Water Splash, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tynamo is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Eelektrik and a stage 2 evolution in Eelektross, 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 doesn't have a high enough HP to warrant using in a deck.  Other than an extremely low HP, the move that this card does have, is pretty good, requiring only one energy card, of any type, and doing up to 20 damage a turn.  But unless you're not worried about getting knocked out right away, especially later in games, do not use this card 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.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, this card is basically not usable as a starter type Pokemon since it only has 40 for HP, however, other than that, the card is pretty good, having a low retreat cost, and a pretty good move, that does good damage and is pretty quick.  But overall, this card shouldn't be used in a deck unless it is being used to evolve into Eelektrik.
