Skarmory -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Skarmory Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skarmory from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Skarmory is a Basic, Metal type Pokemon card with a HP of 110.  Skarmory has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Skarmory does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Metallic Sound, for two Colorless Energy cards this move allows you to discard all Special Energy from each Pokemon.  Skarmory's second move is called Aerial Ace, for three Energy cards, one Metal and two Colorless, this move does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skarmory 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 Skarmory.  So knowing this, this card can't be used as a starter type Pokemon since it is too slow on the attack.  Really, the only reason you'd use this card in a deck is for its Metallic Sound move, lots of decks run 4 Double Colorless Energy cards, so using this move may destroy your opponent's strategy and gain you a big advantage.  Aerial Ace is also a solid move that has potential to do major damage, but for a card that has 110 HP, putting three Energy cards on it is risky.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 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, this is a card best used later in games, once it is set up on your Bench, it can work as either an attacker or a card that destroys your opponent's strategy.  Overall, although not amazing, it is a solid card and should be considered when deck building.
