Binacle -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Binacle Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Binacle from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Binacle is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Binacle does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Sand Attack, for one fighting energy card this move makes your opponent flip a coin if they decide to attack during their next turn, if they get tails, the move they are trying to do does nothing.  Binacle's second move is called Mud-Slap, this move requires three energy cards to use, one colorless and two fighting, and does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Binacle is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Barbaracle, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since there is not a Barbaracle card in this set, and the most recent Barbaracle card in a set is in the Flashfire set which I have reviewed previously and given a 3 out of 5 rating, I will act like I plan on using this Binacle card on its own.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  I say this because Binacle's Mud-Slap move is very slow on the attack and for the amount of energy cards required to attack, it does well below average damage.  If you aren't going to use Barbaracle in a deck, there is no reason to only use this card for Sand Attack, because there is no reason to just trying to prevent your opponent from attacking every turn while Binacle will never be able to do anything anyway.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Barbaracle, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I am not a fan of this card at all, the only reason I am not giving this card a 1 out of 5 rating is because the card does have two moves and an average HP, if it just had one of the two moves, then I would have moved the card down even lower rating wise.  So you can do much better when building a fighting type deck than to use this card in it.
