Trevenant -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Trevenant Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Trevenant from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Trevenant is a Stage 1, Grass type Pokemon card, with a HP of 120. It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Trevenant does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  This card's first move is called Poltergeist, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 30 damage times the number of Trainer cards in your opponent's hand when they reveal it.  Horn Leech is Trevenant's second move, for three Energy cards, two Grass and one Colorless, this move does 90 damage, plus it heals 30 damage from Trevenant.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Trevenant is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Phantump into play (I reviewed Phantump from this set yesterday) and then evolve Phantump into Trevenant.  If you read yesterday's review of Trevenant, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  The card was fairly solid overall, with an average HP, and two moves, but it was limited in that it could only do a maximum of 10 damage total, and it had a higher retreat cost.  So knowing  this about Phantump and looking at this Trevenant card, I would recommend setting this line up on the Bench, since both of the moves on Trevenant require a little time to set up.  I would mainly use Horn Leech when attacking, but this card could sit on the Bench until you know your opponent has some Trainer cards in their hand, or, if you just want to see the strategy your opponent is going to use, you could use Poltergeist.  Overall, this is a solid attacker for a Grass type deck, and could easily work in 1-1 fashion in a Grass type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Other than requiring at least two Energy cards to attack, this card is very good overall.  It has a well above average HP, made even higher by its Horn Leech move, it has the potential to do major damage with Poltergeist, and is just a great attacker overall to use in a Grass type deck.  Together with Phantump from this set, which I gave a 2 out of 5 rating, I would give these two cards a 3 out of 5 rating, they should definitely be considered for a Grass type deck.
