Golett -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Golett Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Golett from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Golett is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Golett does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Smash Punch, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage, however if you get a tails when flipping a coin to use this move, the move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Golett is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Golurk, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I would highly recommend against using this card in a deck.  Even though it requires colorless energy cards to attack and has a high HP, there is jut no way you want to use this card in a deck without Golurk, it has a higher retreat cost than attack cost, and the one move that this card has, has a 50/50 shot of actually doing damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Golurk, this is a pretty miserable Basic Pokemon card.  Stay away from a high retreat cost, low accuracy attacker that can't attack right away.  Hopefully Golurk is a bit better than this card.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Golett from the Ancient Origins set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Golett's stage 1 evolution Golurk, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
