Goomy -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Goomy Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Goomy from the Ancient Origins set.  Goomy is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card with an HP of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Goomy's Ability is called Water Down and says that whenever you place a water energy card on this Goomy card, you may search your deck for another Goomy and put it onto your bench.  Besides the Ability, this card has one move called Stampede that for two energy cards, one each of fairy and colorless, does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Goomy is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Sliggoo, and a Stage 2 evolution in Goodra, which I'll be reviewing the next few days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Goomy does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, I would stay as far as possible away from this card.  Not only is this card prime for getting OHKOed later in games with only 40 HP, but you can't even use this card as a starter type Pokemon because it requires two energy cards to attack and does a low amount of damage.  So there is really no strategy to use with this card other than to not include it in your deck.  Speaking of how bad this card is, why would you try and utilize its Ability so you can get even more Goomy in play?

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a miserable Basic Pokemon card from the Ancient Origin set.  This is probably one of the worst cards I have seen from this set so far.  There really isn't anything I like about this card, it has such a low HP and a slow move that does below average damage that there just isn't any merit to using this card in a deck.  Also, I don't like the fact that Goomy's Ability requires water type energy cards and most decks that have two types of Basic energy cards don't work that well.  So again, stay away from this card, and do not use it in your deck.
