Rotom -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Rotom Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rotom from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Rotom is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rotom does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Electro Ball, for one lightning energy card this move does 20 damage.  Rotom's second move is called Electric Mischief and for two colorless energy cards this move allows you to flip 3 coins, for each heads you get, you get to choose a random card from your opponent's hand and have them show it to you and put it back into their deck.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rotom is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, this card has the makings of a decent starter type Pokemon, it has an above average HP and two good moves early in the game, Electro Ball does above average damage, then Electric Mischief can give you a hint at what your opponent's strategy will be and possibly ruin their strategy early in the game.  I definitely wouldn't use more than one of these in a deck since it is limited overall, but if you're building a lightning type deck, I think one of these in there would be fine.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  This card is definitely not flashy, but there is really nothing to complain about with this card.  It has an above average HP, and two good moves.  Plus, if you really like Electric Mischief, you can put Rotom in any type deck and use it, since that move requires colorless energy cards.

The first English expansion to include a Rotom card was Diamond & Pearl: Great Encounters. It was a Rare Holo (7/106) in the said expansion.
