Boldore -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Boldore Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Boldore from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set.  Boldore is a Stage 1, Fighting type Pokemon card, with a HP of 110.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Boldore does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Headbutt, for two Energy cards, one each of Fighting and Colorless, this move does 30 damage.  Boldore's second move is called Rock Hurl, for three Energy cards, two Colorless and one Fighting, this move does 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Boldore is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Roggenrola into play (I reviewed Roggenrola from this set yesterday) and then evolve Roggenrola into Boldore.  Roggenrola does have a Stage 2 evolution in Gigalith, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Boldore is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Roggenrola, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon overall.  Similar to this Boldore card, Roggenrola had an above average HP, but a high retreat cost, plus only an average move.  So knowing this about Roggenrola and looking at this Boldore card, I would not recommend using either of these Pokemon in a deck without Gigalith.  The main reason for not wanting to use Boldore would be its extremely high retreat cost, after that it would be the fact it is slow on the attack, and neither move it has is above average.

Pokemon Card Rating:  
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  This card does have an above average HP and two moves, but neither move is very good, and Boldore has a much higher retreat cost than attack cost.  So when looking at both Roggenrola and Boldore from this set, I would give the two Pokemon a 1 out of 5 rating, pass on this line.
