Gothorita -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Gothorita Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothorita from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card set.  Gothorita is a Stage 1, Psychic type Pokemon card, with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Gothorita does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Slap, for one Psychic Energy card this move does 20 damage.  Psybeam is this card's second move, for two Energy cards, one each of Psychic and Colorless, this move does 30 damage and it confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gothorita is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Gothita into play (I reviewed Gothita from this set yesterday) and then evolve Gothita into Gothorita.  Gothita does have a Stage 2 evolution in Gothitelle, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Gothorita is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Gothita, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card overall, it had a solid HP, low retreat cost, and one move that can do 10 damage to any of your opponent's Pokemon, the only problem with this card is that it is limited in only having one move, so later in games it isn't that good.  So knowing this about Gothita and looking at this Gothorita card, if you're using Gothita as a starter type Pokemon, you could easily evolve it and do more damage quickly with this card, up to 30 damage per turn plus you can Confuse the defending Pokemon.  Neither move on this card is that great though, and with only 80 HP, it may be best to either use Gothita on its own, or use the entire line.

Pokemon Card Rating:  
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Although this card does have two decent moves, because it has a low HP and can only do 30 damage per turn, it is slightly below average overall, especially as a Stage 1 Pokemon.  Combined with Gothita from this set, I would give the two cards a 2 out of 5 rating, both are solid overall, but neither are spectacular.
