Skarmory -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Skarmory Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skarmory from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Skarmory is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 100, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Skarmory does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Call for Family, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for up to 2 Basic Pokemon and put them onto your bench.  Skarmory's second move is called Blow Through, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use and does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if there is a Stadium card in play.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skarmory 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, this card would work well as a starter type Pokemon in a deck.  You would try and get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, use Call for Family the first turn to get some more Pokemon on your bench, then after that use Blow Through every turn, knocking most Basic Pokemon out in two turns, some in one turn if you do 60 damage a turn.  So you'll want to make sure you have some Stadium cards in your deck to boost Skarmory's move.  This card isn't as good of a starter type Pokemon as Dunsparce was from yesterday but I would still recommend this card in a deck if you need one more card to make 60 cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly above average Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring skies set.  There really isn't anything I dislike about this card, it has an above average HP, and two good moves.  So overall, if you're looking for a good card to add to your deck that can be used right away, definitely consider this Skarmory card.
