Natu 28/108 -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Natu Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Natu from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of the two Natu cards that I've reviewed from this set.  Natu is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This Natu card does have an Ancient Trait called Plus that says if your opponent's Pokemon is knocked out by damage from Natu, you get to take one additional prize card.  Besides the Ancient Trait, Natu just has one move called Psywave, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 10 damage times the number of energy cards attached to your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Natu is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Xatu, 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 but I will be comparing both Natu cards in this post.  So taking a look at this specific Natu card, even though I really like its Ancient Trait, I would stay away from this card at all costs.  Not only does this card have an extremely low HP, the one move it does have is slow to use and may end up doing no damage at all during a turn, or if you're facing a Pokemon that has a ton of energy cards on it, you'll more than likely be able to do 30 or 40 damage but get knocked out right away.  So unless you just feel like giving a Prize card to your opponent, do not use this Natu card in a deck.  Comparing the two Natu cards from this set, neither are very good, if you want to use one of these two Natu cards to play with Xatu, use yesterday's card as it can attack quicker and has a higher HP.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Xatu, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  Outside of the Ancient Trait, there isn't one thing that I like about this card, it has a low HP, and pretty poor move, so considering this is on a Basic Pokemon card and there is another Natu in this set, it is a pretty easy decision not to use this card in a deck.

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