Oricorio #55/145 -- 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, Psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 90.  Oricorio has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This Oricorio card does have an Ability, it is called Vital Dance and says that when you play this card from your hand to your Bench, you may search your discard pile for up to 2 Basic Energy cards and put them into your hand.  Besides the Ability, this card has one move called Casual Slap, for two Energy cards, one each of Psychic and Colorless, this move does 30 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 several of your Pokemon in play discard Energy cards when attacking, this card is a very useful one to have in your deck, since you don't even have to put it into the Active Pokemon spot to get some Energy cards back into your hand.  Plus, if you're able to move this card back into your hand and re-use its Ability, the card is even better.  Other than that, although this card only has one move, it does a fair amount of damage, plus it has a low retreat cost, so it wouldn't be miserable to use as a starter type Pokemon in a Psychic type deck.

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.  Like I mentioned above, if you need a way to retrieve Energy cards from your discard pile, this card is one you should use.  Other than its Ability, which is above average, its only move does average damage overall, and it is limited in that it only has the one move.  So while this card won't be a staple in all decks, it is worth consideration when deck building.
