Torkoal -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Torkoal Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Torkoal from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Torkoal is a Basic, Fire type Pokemon card with a HP of 110.  Torkoal has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Torkoal does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Singe, for one Fire Energy card this move burns the defending Pokemon.  Torkoal's second move is called Body Slam, for two Energy cards, one each of Fire and Colorless, this move does 50 damage, plus it paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Torkoal is a Basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Torkoal.  So knowing this, if you're building a Fire type deck, this card could work as a starter type Pokemon, since you can Burn the defending Pokemon the first turn of the game and either focus on setting up the benched Pokemon after, or do major damage every turn with Body Slam only two turns into the game.  Even later in the game, this card can work, since it has a fairly high HP, so while I would not include several of these cards in a deck, I could see using 1 or 2 to bolster your starting type Pokemon in a Fire type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  In my opinion, this card would work well in a Fire type deck, as I mentioned above, since this card has a high HP, it could be used throughout the game, but would work best as a starter type Pokemon, giving you time to set up your benched Pokemon while having the defending Pokemon be inflicted with the Burn condition.  So again, if you're building a Fire type deck, I would give this card a long look.
