Zigzagoon -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Zigzagoon Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zigzagoon from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Zigzagoon is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Zigzagoon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Sand Attack, this move requires one colorless energy card to use, and makes your opponent flip a coin when attacking during their next turn, if they get a tails, the attack does nothing.  Zigzagoon's second move is called Headbutt, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zigzagoon is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Linoone, 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, this card could be used in a deck, any type deck, since it requires only colorless energy cards to use.  However, this card doesn't have anything too powerful and takes two energy cards to do any damage to the defending Pokemon.  So Sand Attack is pretty useless unless for some reason you have this card in the active Pokemon spot later in the game and just need to prevent the defending Pokemon from attacking.  So if you want to use this card in a deck, don't use more than 1 of these, either get this card into the active Pokemon spot early on to do 20 damage a turn, or put it into the active Pokemon spot later in the game just to make your opponent unable to attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Linoone, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card is pretty average overall, with an average HP, low retreat cost and two moves, but this card just doesn't strike my fancy.  I am not a fan of coin flip based moves and that is what Sand Attack is, which downgrades this card for me, and then Headbutt is just a very average move that I would have rather had a one energy card attack cost on.  So if you are in a pinch, this card would work in a deck, but I would recommend looking elsewhere.
