Vikavolt -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Vikavolt Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vikavolt from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Vikavolt is a Stage 2, Lightning type Pokemon card, with a HP of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Metal type Pokemon, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Vikavolt's Ability is called Strong Charge and says that once per turn you may search your deck for 1 each of Grass and Lightning type Energy cards and attach them to your Pokemon any way that you'd like.  Besides the Ability, Vikavolt only has one move called Electro Cannon, which does 150 damage for four Energy cards, one Lightning and three Colorless, however, after using this move you must discard 3 Energy from Vikavolt.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vikavolt is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Grubbin into play and then evolve it into Charjabug before you can evolve Charjabug into Vikavolt, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall, Grubbin was slow on the attack and only had one move, whereas Charjabug did have two moves, but neither did more than average damage.  Because of this, and how good Vikavolt's Ability is, there really is no reason to ever put this line into the active Pokemon spot, you could easily use a 1-1-1 line of this Pokemon family and utilize Vikavolt's Ability from the Bench.  Strong Charge can accelerate the setting up of your Pokemon in a Grass and Lightning type deck, so I would 100% recommend using this card in a Lightning, Grass, or dual type deck.  Besides Vikavolt's Ability, although Electro Cannon does do major damage, it isn't worth discarding three Energy cards to use it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, this card has a pretty amazing Ability and can be used solely from the Bench.  This card gets an above average rating from me purely because of its Ability.  Altogether, this line gets an average rating from me, 3 out of 5, since both of the first two Pokemon in this line received a 2 out of 5 rating from me.
