Rotom -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Rotom Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rotom from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Rotom is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rotom does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Energy Extract, for one lightning energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a basic Energy card and attach it to Rotom.  Rotom's second move is called Plasmagic, for two colorless energy cards this move allows you to move 2 damage counters from each of your Pokemon to your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rotom 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, this card would work perfectly in a deck that has a lot of Pokemon with low or free retreat costs, and potentially with a powerful attacking Pokemon that also does damage to your own Pokemon.  The whole idea with this card is to keep it on the bench until a majority of your Pokemon in play have damage on them you can then do up to 120 damage a turn for only two energy cards, and only one colorless energy card if you're using that special energy card.  Energy Extract is really a move that I wouldn't be that interested in since it would take away from doing damage and two energy cards isn't that big of a deal to put on a Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  Used in the right deck this would be a great card later in games, however if you want to use this card as a starter type Pokemon it isn't that great, so again, this card is only that good in certain situations, but in that situation it is above average.
