Snorlax -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Snorlax BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Snorlax from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Snorlax is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 120, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Snorlax's Ability is called Plump Body and says that any damage done to Snorlax by attacks is reduced by 30.  Besides the Ability, Snorlax has just one move called Knock Away, this move requires four colorless energy cards to use, and does 50 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Snorlax 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, there is really no reason to use this card in a deck, at least in my opinion.  It is very slow on the attack, like most Snorlax cards are, and can only do below average damage unless you get a heads when flipping a coin, and even then, it is essentially an average move.  So unless you want to eat up a bunch of energy cards to attack with this card and discard a bunch of energy cards when retreating, do not use this card in a deck.  The only way I would use this card in a deck at all, is if you plan on having 4 Double Colorless energy cards in your deck, then potentially you would only have to attach two energy cards to this card to attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  Even though this card has a high HP, and a move that can do up to 80 damage a turn, plus an effective Ability, I just don't think this card is that good.  It is too slow on the attack and too under-powered for me to consider it even average.
