Roggenrola -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Roggenrola Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Roggenrola from the Sun and Moon set.  Roggenrola is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Roggenrola does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Smack Down.  For two Energy cards, one each of Fighting and Colorless, Smack Down does 20 damage plus 50 more damage if the defending Pokemon is resistant to Fighting type Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Roggenrola is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Boldore, and a Stage 2 evolution in Gigalith, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Roggenrola does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card shouldn't be used in a deck, the main reason being it can't attack quickly, and the second reason being that the retreat cost on Roggenrola is higher than its attack cost.  Really, the only strategy with this card would be to set it up on the Bench and only use it against a Pokemon resistant to Fighting type Pokemon so it can do 70 damage a turn instead of 20.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Although this card does have a solid HP and can do major damage when attacking, because it is slow on the attack and has a high retreat cost, the card should not be used on its own.  This card works much better when kept on the Bench and evolved there.
