Kabuto -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

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

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kabuto is a restored Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Kabutops, 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 Dome Fossil Kabuto trainer from the Fates Collide set, since that is the only way to get Kabuto on the bench.  That card itself allows you to look at the bottom 7 cards of your deck and move a Kabuto you find there to your bench.  This card is very similar to the Omanyte card I reviewed earlier in this set other than the fact that this card has a lower retreat cost.  Like I said in that review, if this card was a Basic Pokemon, this would be a perfect starter type Pokemon since it can do well above average damage for only 1 energy card.  However, since you have to use a trainer card to get this card into play, that reduces the appeal of this card a bit, but if I were building a fighting type deck, I would still consider using at least a 1-1 line of the trainer and this Kabuto card so that I could do a good amount of damage for only 1 energy card with Mud Shot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Kabutops, 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 that is the issue with this card, but it is still worth a look when deck building.
