Wooper -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Wooper Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wooper from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Wooper is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Wooper does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Nap and for one colorless energy card heals 20 damage from Wooper.  Wooper's second move is called Wave Splash, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wooper is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Quagsire, 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, the first thing you'll want to notice about this card is even though it is a fighting type card, it requires no fighting energy cards at all, only colorless and water.  Even knowing this, without Quagsire in your deck, there is no reason to use this card on its own.  This card is definitely not any better than average and for a starter type Pokemon, I would want to move Wooper into the active Pokemon spot to start the game and attack right away, being able to heal 20 damage from Wooper when it probably doesn't have any damage on it does us no good.  So if you're building a water type deck, look elsewhere for a Pokemon card to use.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Quagsire, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  One that isn't bad on the surface, since it has two moves and an average HP, but there is really never a time when you're going to want this card in the active Pokemon spot since it requires two energy cards to do any damage to the opposing Pokemon.

False. The only times Wooper was a Fighting-Type was in EX Unseen Forces and Ancient Origins. It was a Grass-Type in EX Dragon Frontiers, and was a Water-Type in Neo Genesis, Neo Discovery, Aquapolis, EX Team Rocket Returns, Secret Wonders, HeartGold & SoulSilver, and Plasma Freeze.
