Alomomola -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Alomomola Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Alomomola from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Alomomola is a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 110.  Alomomola has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Alomomola does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Borne Ashore, for one Colorless Energy card this move allows you to move a Basic Pokemon from either player's discard pile to their Bench.  Hydro Splash is this card's second move, for three Energy cards, one Water and two Colorless, this move does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Alomomola 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 Alomomola.  So knowing this, you may try and want to put one of these cards in many of the decks you're building.  You can just keep this card on the Bench and then use its Borne Ashore move later in games, either to get a Pokemon from your own deck back into play, or, to put a weak, Basic Pokemon of your opponent's back in play.  If you're building a spread attack type deck, Borne Ashore is even better.  Other than this move, Hydro Splash does do average damage for the amount of Energy cards it requires, but there are certainly better moves out there to use.

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 Guardians Rising set.  Other than having a somewhat high retreat cost, both moves on this card are at least average, add in a high HP, and this card definitely deserves some consideration when deck building.
