Hawlucha -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Hawlucha Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Hawlucha from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Hawlucha is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 80, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Hawlucha does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle, for one fighting energy card this move does 10 damage.  Hawlucha's second move is called Midair Strike, for three colorless energy cards, this move does 40 damage plus if you get a heads when flipping a coin, it does 40 more damage for a total of 80 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Hawlucha 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're building a fighting type deck and are looking for a starter type Pokemon, this Hawlucha may not be a bad one to use.  All you would have to do is put one energy card on this card and it could do 10 damage a turn, plus it has a low retreat cost and high HP so it could stay in the active Pokemon spot awhile while you set up your benched Pokemon, but if you are feeling a bit luckier, you could always put 3 energy cards on this card, attach the Trick Coin card to this card, and try and do 80 damage a turn with Midair Strike.  I personally wouldn't use this card in a deck, but if you choose to, I wouldn't use more than 1 of these in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  I am not a huge fan of Midair Strike by an means, but overall this card is solid, with an above average HP, low retreat cost, and two very average moves, it could definitely hold its own in a deck.
