Tropius -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Tropius Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tropius from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Tropius is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 110, it has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Tropius does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Stomp, for three colorless energy cards this move does 50 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Tropius' second move is called Solar Beam, this move requires four energy cards to use, three colorless and one grass, and does 80 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tropius is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, if you decide to use this card in a deck, you'll not want to use more than one.  I say this because this card is extremely slow to attack and you don't want to have too many energy cards tied up to this Pokemon.  I personally wouldn't use this card in a deck just because it is too slow and neither attack it has is that great.  But you could certainly use one of these in a deck, set it up on the bench and get four energy cards on it, then move it to the active Pokemon spot and do 80 damage a turn with Solar Beam.  One thing I do like about this card is that it requires mainly colorless type energy cards meaning it would work well in almost all type decks.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  There are some positives on this card like the fact it has a high HP and two moves, both doing a fair amount of damage.  However, this card gets a below average rating because it is very slow on the attack, and neither move does above average damage.  So if you're building a grass type deck and want some power, this card may work, but I would recommend looking elsewhere first.
