Bidoof 116/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Bidoof Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bidoof from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two Bidoof cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Bidoof is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This Bidoof card does not have an Ability or Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Gnaw, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Bidoof's second move is called Scrunch, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use and prevents all damage done from an attack by your opponent during their next turn if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bidoof is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Bibarel, 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 Bidoof 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 Bidoof card is better.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, however if you plan on using this card with Bibarel, it would definitely be acceptable.  The reason I wouldn't use this card on its own is because it is weak overall, only being able to do 10 damage a turn maximum.  It is nice that it has 70 HP, which is above average, but there is no reason for this card to stay in the active Pokemon spot for that long.  So unless you really like Bidoof, I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Bibarel, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card does have some positives like its high HP and a low retreat cost, plus the fact it has two moves, but overall this card is just too weak for me to want to use, and neither move is that great on this card.  So you can definitely find better colorless type cards out there to use in your deck.
