Salandit -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Salandit Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Salandit from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Salandit is a Basic, Fire type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Salandit does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Scratch, for one Fire Energy card this move does 10 damage.  Salandit's second move is called Venoshock, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage plus 40 more damage if the defending Pokemon is Poisoned.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Salandit is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Salazzle, 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, this card could certainly be used as a starter type Pokemon in a Fire type deck, since it can attack for one Energy card and because it has an above average HP.  Ideally, you would pair this card would a Pokemon that has an Ability that can Poison the defending Pokemon from the Bench, that way, for two Colorless Energy cards or one Double Colorless Energy card, you could do 60 damage a turn with Salandit as your starter Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Salazzle, this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I stated above, this is a very solid card overall, it has an above average HP, low retreat cost, and two solid moves.  Not only can this card attack for one Energy card, but it can do up to 60 damage a turn for one Special Energy card.  So, if you're building a Fire type deck, this card is worth a look.
