Wormadam 59/124 -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Wormadam Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wormadam from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  This is the third and final Wormadam card I'll be reviewing from this set, previously I've reviewed the grass and fighting type ones.  This Wormadam card is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Wormadam does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Strike Back, for one metal type energy card this move does 20 damage times the number of damage counters on this Pokemon.  Wormadam's second move is called Iron Head and for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, this move does 60 damage plus 20 more damage for each heads you get when you flip a coin until you get a tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wormadam is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Burmy into play (I reviewed Burmy from this set a few weeks ago) and then evolve Burmy into Wormadam.  Like I said above, there are two other Wormadam cards in this set, which I'll be comparing further down in this post, plus Burmy has another Stage 1 evolution in Mothim which I have reviewed previously as well.  If you read my review of Burmy, you'll know that I thought that card was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card, mainly because it was so limited in what it could do, just having one move that could do a maximum of 10 damage per turn.  But other than that, it was solid overall, with an average HP and low retreat cost.  So knowing this about Burmy and looking at this Wormadam card, this card would work best if you have a Pokemon that does major damage with a move but also does damage to your own Pokemon, you could then move Wormadam into the active Pokemon spot with even 50 damage on it and do 100 damage a turn for only one energy card.  So that is the main strategy I would use with this card, but be prepared to quickly heal damage from this set and then possibly retreat it to get damage on it again.  Iron Head is an average move but takes longer to set up, but with the Trick Coin trainer may do a good amount of damage.  So if you're building a metal type deck, this Pokemon family is worth a look, I would consider using a 1-1 line.  Looking at all three Wormadam cards in this set, you can't really say one is that much better than another since they are all different types and require distinct types of energy, all are pretty good in my opinion.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  There really isn't any negatives on this card, has a better than average HP, and two good moves both with potential to do well above average damage.  So no matter the type of deck you're building, metal, grass, or fighting, the Burmy-Wormadam line is one to use, I would give all of these lines a 3 out of 5 rating.
