Medicham 80/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Medicham Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Medicham from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two Medicham cards I'll be reviewing consecutively.  Medicham is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Medicham card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Pure Power, for one fighting energy card this move allows you to put four damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way that you'd like.  Medicham's second move is called Windmill Kick, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of fighting and colorless, and does 60 damage, plus it confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Medicham is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Meditite into play (I reviewed Meditite from this set yesterday) and then evolve Meditite into Medicham, there are actually two Medicham cards from this set, and I'll be reviewing the second one tomorrow and then comparing the two.  If you read yesterday's review of Meditite, you'll know that I thought that card was an average Basic Pokemon card, other than having a little lower HP than I'd like, I thought the card was very solid, it could do 20 damage per turn for only one energy card.  So knowing this about Meditite and looking at this Medicham card, I would highly recommend using this Pokemon family in either a spread damage type deck or a fighting type deck.  These two Pokemon cards are very good individually and together and I would recommend using up to a 2-2 line of these two Pokemon.  You can start the game with Meditite in the active Pokemon spot, do 20 damage the first turn, evolve Meditite into Medicham the next and do 60 damage a turn, or you could get a different Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot first that spreads damage around, then when you move Meditite into the active Pokemon spot, you could smartly spread the 40 damage that Pure Power does and knock out at least 1 Pokemon with that move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a great Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set and one that I give my highest rating to.  There isn't anything that I dislike about this card, it has a high HP, average retreat cost, and two very quick, above average moves.  So if you're looking for some quick power in a fighting type deck, or another spread damage type card for your deck, definitely consider the line of Meditite and Medicham from the Primal Clash set.  Together, I would give these two cards a 4 out of 5 rating.
