Rhyhorn -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Rhyhorn Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rhyhorn from the Primal Clash set.  Rhyhorn is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rhyhorn does not have an Ability and it only has one move, the only move it has is called Take Down, for two fighting energy cards, this move does 40 damage, however the move does do 10 damage to Rhyhorn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rhyhorn is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Rhydon and a stage 2 evolution in Rhyperior, which I'll be reviewing the next two 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 would work decently as a starter type Pokemon since it can do 40 damage a turn and could knock out most Basic Pokemon cards in two turns.  This card does have a high HP, but when you incorporate its move into its HP, the 80 HP is really more like 60 which is average.  So if you're building a fighting type deck, this card is definitely worth a look, it can do some damage early on and will give you time to set up your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a solid Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  The only negative on this card in my opinion is the fact its retreat cost is higher than its attack cost.  But other than that, this card has a good HP, and a powerful move, which will wreak havoc on weak Basic Pokemon in the beginning of games.  So again, this card should definitely be considered when building a fighting type deck.
