Sliggoo -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Sliggoo Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sliggoo from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card set.  Sliggoo is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sliggoo does not have an Ability or Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bubble, for one colorless energy card this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Sliggoo's second attack is called Melt and does 20 damage for two energy cards, one each of water and fairy.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sliggoo is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Goomy into play (I reviewed Goomy from this set yesterday) and then evolve Goomy into Sliggoo.  Sliggoo does have a Stage 2 evolution in Goodra, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Sliggoo is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Goomy, you'll know that I thought that card was downright gloomy.  It has an extremely low HP, and the only move it had not only required two energy cards to use, making it slow, but it did below average damage only doing 10 damage.  So I recommended staying away from that card no matter what.  So knowing this about Goomy and looking at this Sliggoo card, I would recommend staying away from both Pokemon in this line, unless I take a look at Goodra tomorrow and just determine it unstoppable.  This card, just like Goomy, has a really low HP, and can do little damage when attacking.  Not only that, this card has a higher retreat cost than attack cost, and it requires two distinct type of energy when attacking.  So no thanks on using Sliggoo in a deck, so there is really no strategy required.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very poor Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  Not only does it have a very low HP, it is slow on the attack, underpowered, and has a high retreat cost.  There is really nothing positive on this card at all.  Combined with the very poor Gloomy card from yesterday, I can't give these two cards higher than a 1 out of 5 rating.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Sliggoo from the Ancient Origins set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Sliggoo's Stage 2 evolution in Goodra, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
