Pancham -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Pancham BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pancham from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Pancham is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Pancham does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Pompous Punch, for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, this move does 10 damage plus it allows you to discard a random card from your opponent's hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pancham is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Pangoro, which isn't in this set, but is in BREAKpoint, you'll more than likely want to use the full evolution when using this line, but since there isn't a Pangoro card in this set, I'll just act like I plan on using Pancham on its own.  So, on its own, I cannot recommend using Pancham in a deck.  Not only is it slow to attack, when you do get two energy cards on Pancham and can attack, the move it has in under-powered, plus if you are forced to put this card into the active Pokemon spot in the case it is the only Basic Pokemon card you have in play, you have to put two energy cards on it to retreat it.  So unless you're using this card with a Pangoro card, I would stay away from this card at all costs.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Pangoro, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card.  This card does have an average HP, but everything else on this card is below average, including its high retreat cost, and its slow, under-powered move.  So if you're building a fighting type deck, there are much better Basic Pokemon cards out there to use.

Pangoro question in a Pancham review. Curious.

Most recent and only other than BPoint set to include a Pangoro card was Furious Fists . There's also a promo out there

The last to include a Pancham was BThrough
