Sandygast -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Sandygast Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sandygast from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Sandygast is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Sandygast does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Shore Up is the first move that Sandygast has, this move requires one Colorless Energy card to use and allows you to attach a Fighting Energy card from your discard pile to Sandygast.  Sandygast's second move is called Sand Tomb, for three Energy cards, two Colorless and one Fighting, this move does 30 damage and makes your opponent unable to retreat during its next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sandygast is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Palossand, 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, there really isn't a reason to use this card in a deck.  Besides having a high HP, there isn't anything else good on this card.  It is slow to get set up for doing damage when attacking and its high retreat cost is a pain if you're forced to put it into the Active Pokemon spot early.  Essentially, the only reason you'd use this card in a deck is if you're forced to use it to get to Palossand.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Palossand, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, the only positive on this card is that it has a high HP, but this card can't be used as a Starter type Pokemon since Shore Up won't work with no Energy in the discard pile, and putting three Energy cards on Sandygast to do only 30 damage with Sand Tomb makes little sense.  So if you're building a Fighting type deck, look elsewhere for cards to use.
