Toucannon -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Toucannon Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Toucannon from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Toucannon is a Stage 2, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Toucannon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Echoed Voice, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 60 damage, plus it makes this move do 60 additional damage during your next turn.  Toucannon's second move is called Beak Blast, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 100 damage, plus Burns the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Toucannon is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pikipek into play and then evolve it into Trumbeak before you can evolve Trumbeak into Toucannon, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall.  Both Pikipek and Trumbeak had below average HP, and one move, both moves having the potential to do a fair amount of damage, but the cards were just limited overall in what they could do.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking Toucannon, this line would be a great one to use in any type deck, because both Pikipek and Trumbeak can attack for one Energy card, you could certainly use both in the Active Pokemon spot a turn then evolve them the next turn.  You could also set this line up on the Bench, whatever you decide to do, since all three Pokemon in this line only require Colorless Energy cards to attack, the line will fit into any type deck, and once you have Toucannon set up, it can do major damage, either 60 then 120 damage a turn, or 100 damage every turn plus the potential to Burn the defending Pokemon.  So, if you're looking for a good attacking Pokemon family for a deck, I would recommend this one.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Really, the only downside to this card is its slightly low HP of 140, otherwise, this card has two great moves, both having potential to do major damage.  Combine this card with Pikipek and Trumbeak from the set, and as a whole, I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, all three Pokemon work well together and should be considered when deck building.
