Taillow -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Taillow Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Taillow from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Taillow is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Taillow does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Double Peck, this move requires one colorless energy card to use and does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Taillow is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Swellow, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed either of those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, even though it can fit into any type deck since it is a colorless type Pokemon card.  The reason I would not use this card on its own is because it has a below average HP, and the only move that this card has may end up doing zero damage every single turn.  You don't want to try and put this card into your active Pokemon spot to start the game and never be able to do any damage with it.  If you were using this card with Swellow, it wouldn't be so bad.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Swellow, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  It has a below average HP and the one move it has, even though it has the potential to do above average damage every turn, is a coin flip based move and one that may end up not doing any damage at all.  So if you're in need for a Basic Pokemon card for your deck, make sure to look elsewhere.
