Exeggcutor -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Exeggcutor Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Exeggcutor from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Exeggcutor is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Exeggcutor does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Shake It Off, this move requires one grass energy card to use and does 20 damage times the number of colorless Pokemon your opponent has in play.  Exeggcutor's second move is called Seed Bomb, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one grass, and does 80 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Exeggcutor is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Exeggcute into play (I reviewed Exeggcute from this set yesterday) and then evolve Exeggcute into Exeggcutor.  If you read yesterday's review of Exeggcute, you'll know that I thought it was a well below average Basic Pokemon card mainly because it had a low HP with only 40, besides that it did have two moves, one couldn't do any damage, the other could only do 10 damage.  So if you plan on using Exeggcutor in a deck, make sure to set it up on the bench.  So knowing this about Exeggcute from this set and looking at this Exeggcutor card, this card definitely is extraordinary so if you use this Pokemon family at all I would only use a 1-1 line.  I would get Exeggcutor set up on the bench like I mentioned, and then wait and see what your opponent does, if your opponent has 3 or more colorless type Pokemon in play, put Exeggcutor in the active Pokemon spot and use Shake It Off for only one energy card.  The more likely play with this card is to just put three energy cards on Exeggcutor and then use Seed Bomb every turn which does do above average damage.  Plus if you put Exeggcutor in the active Pokemon spot to use Shake It Off, you need to either play a Switch trainer card or put two more energy cards on it to retreat.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  There really isn't anything that I dislike about this card, it has a high HP, two solid moves, one being above average, the other slightly below average and based also on some luck.  The thing that keeps this card at a three for me is that it does require three energy cards to for sure do damage and its retreat cost is high.  So overall, I would give the line of Exeggcute and Exeggcutor from the Roaring Skies set a 2 out of 5 rating, as long as you only use Exeggcutor in the active Pokemon spot you should be fine.
