Chinchou -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Chinchou Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chinchou from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Chinchou is a Basic, Lightning type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Metal type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Chinchou does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Searching Light, for one Colorless Energy card this move allows you to look at 1 of your face-down Prize cards.  Chinchou's second move is called Electro Ball and for three Energy cards, two Colorless and one Lightning, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chinchou is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Lanturn, 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, the only reason you should use this card in a deck is if you think it will give you an advantage by looking at your Prize cards early.  If that is the case, you can try and get Chinchou into the Active Pokemon spot to start the game and then use Searching Light a couple of turns, then retreat it.  Although Electro Ball does do damage every turn, I wouldn't use it for three Energy cards, for two Energy cards, with one Double Colorless this move is average at best.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Lanturn, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  I do like the idea of previewing your Prize cards, but if used later in games, this card is very ineffective, since most of your Prize cards should be taken, and 30 damage a turn isn't much, especially for three Energy cards.  I think this card would work better with Lanturn, since you could evolve it after using Searching Light one turn.
