Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tranquill from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card set. Tranquill is a stage 1, colorless 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. Tranquill does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait and it only has one move. The only move that this card has is called Fly, for two colorless energy cards this move does 40 damage, however when using this move you must flip a coin, if the coin is a heads all effects of attacks done to Tranquill during your opponent's next turn are prevented, if the coin is a tails, the move does nothing.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tranquill is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pidove into play (I reviewed Pidove from this set yesterday) and then evolve Pidove into Tranquill. Tranquill does have a stage 2 evolution in Unfezant that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Tranquill is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my review Pidove from this set you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card. There really wasn't anything wrong with it, having an average HP, low retreat cost, and two moves, it was just the fact that the only move that could do damage on the card required two energy cards instead of one. So knowing this about Pidove and looking at this Tranquill card, I would highly recommend not using either of these Pokemon in a deck without Unfezant. I would specifically hinder against using Tranquill at all because it is so poor and may not be able to do anything at all if you have some bad luck flipping a coin. So stay away from this card if you can, and if you have to use it with Unfezant, keep this line on the bench until you can evolve it to its Stage 2 form.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very poor Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set and one I would never recommend using in a deck. Starting off, this card has a really poor HP, then the only thing this card can do is attack, and the one move it has is based off of a coin flip, and if you flip a tails the move does nothing at all. So paired with Pidove from this set, I can't give these two cards higher than a 1 out of 5 rating, they are very poor.
