Exeggcute -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Exeggcute Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Exeggcute from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first card in the Roaring Skies set and first card from that set I'm reviewing on my blog.  Exeggcute is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Exeggcute does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Loathe, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to switch Exeggcute with one of your benched Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Exeggcute's second move is called Ram, this move requires one grass type energy card to use and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Exeggcute is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Exeggcutor, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I would definitely not recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason being this card has a very low HP, and if you don't start the game with this card in the active Pokemon spot, it will for sure get knocked out in two moves, probably one, later in games.  If for some reason you want to use this card in a deck or need to use it with Exeggcutor, I would recommend keeping it on the bench for as long as possible to try and evolve it there, or just using Ram every turn and using Potion cards with this card.  Loathe doesn't do much for me, especially since you can just use a Switch trainer card or give up one energy card to retreat it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Exeggcutor, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card does have two moves, neither move being too great, I am giving this card my lowest rating because of its terrible HP which makes this card unusable.  So not the greatest start to the Roaring Skies set, hopefully tomorrow's review will be a bit better.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
