Nosepass -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Nosepass Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nosepass from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Nosepass is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Nosepass does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Ram, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage.  Rising Lunge is this card's second move, for three Energy cards, one Fighting and two Colorless, this move does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nosepass is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Probopass, which is a Metal type Pokemon in this set and I'll be reviewing in a few weeks, 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, there is really no reason to use this card, mainly because it is slow on the attack, has a high retreat cost, and is under-powered.  The only way this card can even do average damage is if you use Rising Lunge and get a heads when flipping a coin, and even then, with only 80 HP, there is no real reason to put three Energy cards on this card.  So unless you need to use this card to get to Probopass, do not use this card in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Probopass, this is a well below average card overall.  This card does have a decent HP and two moves, that both do damage, but like I mentioned above, this card is slow on the attack, has a high retreat cost, so you can't retreat it right away if you're forced to put this card into the Active Pokemon spot, and can only do a good amount of damage with some luck, so look elsewhere for Basic Pokemon to use in a Fighting type deck.
