Gligar -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Gligar Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gligar from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Gligar is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Gligar does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Stun Poison, for one colorless energy card this move paralyzes and poisons the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gligar is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Gliscor, 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 recommend using this card in a deck, sure it would be nice to poison and paralyze the defending Pokemon right away to start the game, but since Gligar only has the one move and it is based off of a coin flip, I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  There are much better starter type Pokemon out there to use, depending on how good Gliscor is when I review it tomorrow, this card may work perfectly fine with it.  Of course if you do use this card in a deck, attaching a Trick Coin card to it will give you a better shot of flipping a heads.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Gliscor, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card can't do any damage and the only move it has is based off of a coin flip, I am giving this card a 2 rating instead of a 1 because it does have an above average HP and a low retreat cost.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gligar from the Roaring Skies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Gligar's stage 1 evolution Gliscor, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
