Fomantis -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Fomantis Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fomantis from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Fomantis is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Fomantis does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Synthesis, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a grass type energy card and attach it to one of your Pokemon.  Fomantis' second move is called Leafage, for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fomantis is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Lurantis, 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, if you're building a grass type deck, this card is a very good starter type Pokemon to use in the deck.  Ideally, you would get this card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, and use Synthesis to attach two energy cards total to your Pokemon during your turn, one the normal way and one with Synthesis.  Plus, if you have to, you can always do damage with Leafage.  But I really like the Synthesis move on this card since you don't have to wait for energy cards to come into your hand, but can search your deck for them, and you can get Pokemon set up very quickly.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Lurantis, this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, I really like Fomantis' Synthesis move, used early in the game, it can quickly set up all of your benched Pokemon.  So, if you're building a grass type deck, I would highly recommend using at least 1 of these cards in it.
