Oricorio #46/145 -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Oricorio Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Oricorio from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Oricorio is a Basic, Lightning type Pokemon card with a HP of 90.  Oricorio has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Metal type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Oricorio does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Feather Dance is the first move that this card has, for one Lightning Energy card this move makes Oricorio's Pom-Pom Punch move have a base damage of 100 instead of 20.  The aforementioned second move is called Pom-Pom Punch, for one Lightning Energy card this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Oricorio 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 Oricorio.  So knowing this, if you're building a Lightning type deck and are looking for a starter type Pokemon to use for your deck, I would highly recommend using this card.  Not only does it do above average damage with Pom-Pom Punch, doing 20 damage per turn for only one Energy card, but if you use Feather Dance first, you can do 60 damage per turn on average or 120 damage every other turn, which should knock out a majority of Basic Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an excellent Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Similar to the first Oricorio card that I reviewed from this set, this card is a great card overall, with no downsides, it has an above average HP, and two great moves.  There aren't many non Pokemon EX or Pokemon GX Pokemon that can do 120 damage for only one Energy card.  So, if you're building a Lightning type deck, I would certainly consider using up to 4 of these cards.
