Trubbish -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Trubbish Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Trubbish from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Trubbish is a Basic, Psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Trubbish does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Stomp Off, for one Psychic Energy card this move allows you to discard the top card of your opponent's deck.  Drool is this card's second move, for three Energy cards, one Psychic and two Colorless, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Trubbish is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Garbodor, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, unless you think discarding a card from your opponent's deck each turn is going to be a winning strategy for you, I would either use this entire line together or leave out Trubbish from your deck.  Although this card does have two moves and an above average HP, Drool does well below average damage and this card has a higher retreat cost than the attack cost of its first move.  So although this card wouldn't be terrible to use on its own, I cannot recommend using it in a deck on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Garbodor, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  This card does have a solid HP and two moves, however, neither move on this card is that great, and really it is a card that should be kept on the Bench while you're trying to get Garbodor into your hand.  So again, I do not recommend using this card on its own.
