Kangaskhan -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Kangaskhan Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kangaskhan from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Kangaskhan is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 130.  Kangaskhan has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Kangaskhan does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Cross-Cut, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if the defending Pokemon is an Evolution Pokemon.  Kangaskhan's second move is called Hurricane Punch, for four Colorless Energy cards this move does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kangaskhan is a Basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Kangaskhan.  So knowing this, this card is similar to the Fearow card from yesterday, you can just put one Energy card on Kangaskhan on the Bench then if the defending Pokemon is a Pokemon other than a Basic Pokemon you can move Kangaskhan into the Active Pokemon spot and do 60 damage per turn with Cross-Cut.  If you have a Trick Coin Trainer in your deck and some Double Colorless Energy cards, you could easily use Hurricane Punch for potentially 200 damage per turn.  Because you can set up Kangaskhan up on the Bench to use Cross-Cut and the fact Hurricane Punch requires so many Energy cards to use, I would recommend only using 1 of these in a deck, unless your set on using this card as a starter type Pokemon, then you could certainly use 4.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, there are a couple of different strategies to use with this card, since it can do major damage with both moves it has.  This card can also fit into any type deck out there as a starter type Pokemon doing 30 damage for only one Energy card.  Really, the only downside to this card is its high retreat cost, so you'll want to use a Switch Trainer to retreat it for free.
