Gligar -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Gligar Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gligar from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Gligar is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Gligar does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Double Shot, for one Fighting Energy card this move does 10 damage to 2 of your opponent's Benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gligar is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Gliscor, 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, if you're building a spread attack type deck or a Fighting type deck, I would highly recommend using this card as a starter type Pokemon in that deck.  Not only can this card attack for only one Energy card, but it can do damage to two of your opponent's Benched Pokemon each turn.  This is a great way to set up several knock outs in a row later in your game.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Gliscor, this is an average to slightly above average Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Although limited with just one move, I still am a pretty big fan of this card since it can spread damage around when attacking.  Of course, the downfall to the spread attack with this card is that if your opponent doesn't have any Benched Pokemon, Gligar doesn't do any damage.  But overall, this card would make a great starter type Pokemon for a deck.
