Zygarde 53/124 -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Zygarde Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zygarde from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of the two Zygarde card reviews I've done for this set.  This Zygarde card is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 120, it has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Zygarde card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Rumble, for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, this move does 30 damage plus your opponent can't retreat during their next turn.  Zygarde's second move is called Geostrike, for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, this move does 120 damage, however it also does 10 damage to each of your own benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zygarde is a basic Pokemon with no evolution forms, you don't have to use any other cards with this card, since there are two Zygarde cards in this set, I'll be comparing both later in this review.  So strategy wise, this card would make sense to use in a deck that features a Pokemon that does damage depending on how many total damage counters are in play, or a Pokemon that allows you to move damage counters from your benched Pokemon to your opponent's.  With either of those two options, you can then feel free to use Geostrike several turns in a row.  Rumble is also an above average move and would make a decent starter type Pokemon move since it is a fairly quick attack and with Zygarde's high HP, you could use Rumble every turn while setting up your benched Pokemon.  I think that both Zygarde cards from this set warrant use.  Yesterday's card is better for a spread attack type deck and a safer strategy overall, this card is a little riskier, but if played with a card that can move damage or does damage based on all of the damage in play, makes this card very powerful.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  This card has a much better HP than yesterday's Zygarde card, can do more damage per turn and has two moves that both do damage as opposed to one.  Both cards in my opinion are average to above average depending on how they're used.  So if you're building a fighting type deck, I would give a long look to each of these Zygarde cards.
