Turtonator -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Turtonator Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Turtonator from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Turtonator is a Basic, Fire type Pokemon card with a HP of 110.  Turtonator has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Turtonator does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Body Slam, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 30 damage, plus it can Paralyze the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Heat Blast is the name of Turtonator's second move, for three Energy cards, two Fire and one Colorless, this move does 90 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Turtonator 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 Turtonator.  So knowing this, because the main reason you'll want to use this Turtonator card is for its Heat Blast move, you won't have to use more than one of these cards in a deck, and you'll want to set it up on the Bench before moving it into the Active Pokemon spot.  You can put three Energy cards on Turtonator on the Bench, then attack with Heat Blast right away doing 90 damage a turn.  Despite the high retreat cost on this card, I think Heat Blast is a powerful enough move that it is worth using in a Fire type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Like I mentioned above, despite being a slow attacker and having a high retreat cost, I think this card is powerful enough, and has a high enough HP, that it can be used as an attacker in almost any Fire type deck out there.
