Lunala -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Lunala Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lunala from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Lunala is a Stage 2, Psychic type Pokemon card, with a HP of 160.  It has a x2 weakness to Darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Shatter Shot, for one Psychic Energy card this move does 40 damage times the amount of Psychic Energy cards attached to this card.  Lunala's second move is called Wings of the Moone, for three Psychic Energy cards this move does 130 damage, however after using this move, you must move all Energy attached to Lunala to your Benched Pokemon in any way that you'd like.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lunala is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Cosmog and Cosmoem into play.  Neither of those Pokemon are in the Guardians Rising set, but I have reviewed both of those cards in the Sun & Moon Base Set.  Taking a look at this Lunala card on its own, since it is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, therefore slow to set up, if you want to use this card in a deck, use only a 1-1-1 line of this family.  You could just keep attaching Energy cards to Lunala on the Bench, and therefore doing massive damage every turn with Shatter Shot, then when Lunala is close to getting knocked out, either switch it with a Trainer for free, or use Wings of the Moone first and let it get knocked out or retreat it the next turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Although this card has the potential to do a major amount of damage every single turn, because it is so slow on the attack I would say it is below average overall.  Plus if you're using Cosmog and Cosmoem in your deck, both GX cards, Solgaleo and Lunala from the Sun & Moon Base Set would be better cards to use than this one.
