Gloom -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Gloom Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gloom from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card set.  Gloom is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gloom does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability and it only has one move called Drool that does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of colorless and grass.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gloom is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Oddish into play (I reviewed Oddish from this set yesterday) and then evolve Oddish into Gloom.  Gloom does have two stage 2 evolution forms in Vileplume and Bellossom that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, the strategy below will act like Gloom is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Oddish, you'll know that I thought that card was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card with the only negative on the card really being its lower HP, because the one move it did have required only one energy card to attack and could do up to 20 damage a turn.  So knowing this about Oddish and looking at this Gloom card, this Gloom card is pretty similar in that it has a lower HP, and only one move that does do a fair amount of damage for a reasonable amount of energy cards.  Because both Pokemon in this line so far have less than average HP, I can not recommend using these two cards in a deck, but if you plan to use Vileplume or Bellossom, these two cards should work just fine since they can do good for one turn in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  Other than having a lower HP and only having one move, this card is a pretty decent Stage 1 Pokemon card overall being able to attack quickly and doing a fair amount of damage.  However, because both Oddish and Gloom have below average HP, together I am giving them a combined 2 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave each card individually.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gloom from the Ancient Origins set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the first of the two Stage 2 evolution forms of Gloom, in Vileplume, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
