Hariyama -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Hariyama Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Hariyama from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Hariyama is a Stage 1, Fighting type Pokemon card, with a HP of 130. It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Hariyama does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Push Out, for three Energy cards, one Fighting and two Colorless, this move does 60 damage, plus it forces your opponent to switch out their Active Pokemon with one of their Benched Pokemon.  Hariyama's second move is called Megaton Slap Push, for four Energy cards, one Fighting and three Colorless, this move does 130 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Hariyama is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Makuhita into play (I reviewed Makuhita from this set yesterday) and then evolve Makuhita into Hariyama.  If you read yesterday's review of Makuhita, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card overall, it had an above average HP, and two moves, both having the potential to do more than average damage.  So it could be used on its own, or a good start to this line.  So knowing this about Makuhita and looking at this Hariyama card, because both of the moves on this card are slow to attack, I would recommend setting up the line on the Bench, therefore only using a 1-1 line of each Pokemon.  Hariyama's Push Out move would work well in a spread attack type deck.  If you're not using this type of deck, I would probably pass on this line altogether since Hariyama has a really high retreat cost, and two high attack cost moves.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  This card is solid overall, having an above average HP and two good and powerful moves.  The downfalls to this card would be its high retreat cost and high attack costs.  So, again, if you're building a spread attack type deck I would consider using this line, otherwise, unless you are using 4 Double Colorless Energy cards, I would look elsewhere.  Combined with Makuhita from this set, which I gave a 3 out of 5 rating, I would give both of these cards a 3 out of 5 rating combined.
