Pangoro -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Pangoro BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pangoro from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Pangoro is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pangoro does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Parting Shot and for one darkness energy card this move does 10 damage plus it allows you to switch Pangoro with one of your benched Pokemon and it reduces any attacks during your opponent's next turn by 60.  Pangoro's second move is called Buster Swing and for three darkness energy cards this move does 90 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pangoro is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pancham into play (I reviewed Pancham a few days ago) and then evolve Pancham into Pangoro.  If you read my review of Pancham, you'll know other than having a higher retreat cost, the card was pretty average overall, having two quick attacking moves, a solid HP, and only requiring colorless type energy cards to attack.  So knowing this about Pancham and looking at this Pangoro card, this is a very solid card overall and one to use in a heavy darkness type deck for some power and a way to provide some defense for a Pokemon on your bench that has a little lower HP.  I would ideally start the game with Pancham in the active Pokemon spot doing 10 damage the first turn, 20 the second, then evolving Pancham into Pangoro and doing 90 damage a turn.  When Pangoro is close to being knocked out, you would use Parting Shot and provide some defense for your new active Pokemon.  This card also works well with Darkrai EX from this set since Pangoro requires all darkness type energy.  I could see using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family in a darkness type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Other than having a higher retreat cost, which is nullified by Parting Shot, this card is very solid overall, having a high HP and a powerful attack.  Together with Pancham from this set, I would give these two cards a 4 out of 5 rating, both cards are solid and would make a nice addition to a deck.
