Omanyte -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Omanyte Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Omanyte from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Omanyte is a restored, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Omanyte does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Water Gun, which does 30 damage for one water type energy card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Omanyte is a restored Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Omastar, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, of course you'll have to use this card with the Helix Fossil Omanyte trainer from the Fates Collide set, since that is the only way to get Omanyte on the bench.  That card itself allows you to look at the bottom 7 cards of your deck and move an Omanyte you find there to your bench.  If Omanyte was a Basic Pokemon card it would be an excellent starter type Pokemon since it has a high HP and a great move for only one energy card.  But this card is actually pretty tough to get into play, since it is more similar to a Stage 1 Pokemon and you need to use that Trainer to get it plus you need Omanyte to be at the bottom of your deck.  Once Omanyte is in play, Water Gun is a great move and would definitely provide some great power and quick attacking in a water type deck.  So without Omastar, I could potentially see using a 1-1 line of the Helix Fossil Omanyte trainer and Omanyte.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Omastar, this is an average Restored Pokemon card.  Like I said, outside of being tricky to get into play, this card is solid overall with a quick, powerful move and a higher HP, it is just a matter of getting it into play and then a higher retreat cost if in the active Pokemon spot that makes this card average overall.
