Unfezant 81/108 -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Unfezant Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Unfezant from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of the two Unfezant cards from this set I've reviewed on my blog.  Unfezant is a stage 2, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost.  This Unfezant card has an Ancient Trait called Evolution that says you may evolve Tranquill into Unfezant either your first turn or as soon as you put Tranquill into play.  Besides the Ancient Trait, Unfezant has two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Feather Dance, for two colorless energy cards this move makes Sky Attack do 80 more damage during the next turn.  Previously mentioned, Unfezant's second move is called Sky Attack and for three energy cards, all colorless, this move does 120 damage, however the move is based on a coin flip and if you get a tails the attack does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Unfezant is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pidove into play and then evolve it into Tranquill before you can evolve Tranquill into Unfezant, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last few days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average, giving the two cards a combined 1 out of 5 rating.  Pidove wasn't too bad, it had an average HP, low retreat cost, and two moves, what I didn't like about it was the fact its attacking move required two energy cards instead of one.  Tranquill on the other hand I thought was really poor, it had a low HP and only one move that depended on a coin flip and if that coin was a tails the move did nothing at all.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this specific Unfezant card, the ideal strategy with this card would be to set up the entire line on the bench, getting three energy cards on Unfezant, then attaching a Trick Coin item card to this card, then when you are facing a powerful Pokemon in the opponent's active Pokemon spot, move Unfezant into the active Pokemon spot, use Sky Attack immediately hoping for a heads if the defending Pokemon can be knocked out by 120 damage or less, or use Feather Dance the first turn and Sky Attack the second turn doing 200 damage in one turn.  The problem with this ideal plan is that you could do all of that work setting up this Pokemon line then get to Unfezant and never be able to attack which would be a real shame, so to fix this problem, I wouldn't recommend using this line at all.  After looking at both Unfezant cards from this set, both have some intrigue to them and both could be used in a winning deck, however the probability of actually performing well with these Pokemon in slim so I wouldn't recommend using either in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  I like that this card has a higher HP than the other Unfezant card and that it has a free retreat cost, but this card is too costly to play if it can't do any damage and that is the chance you take with a card that is based on a coin flip.  So, overall, I would give the entire line of Pidove, Tranquill, and Unfezant from the Roaring Skies set a 2 out of 5 rating.
