Pancham -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Pancham Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pancham from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Pancham is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Pancham does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Karate Chop, for two Fighting Energy cards this move does 60 damage minus 10 damage for each damage counter on Pancham.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pancham is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Pangoro, which I'll be reviewing in a couple of weeks, since it is a Darkness type Pokemon, 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 can get this card into the Active Pokemon spot to start the game, this card has potential to do major damage, and potentially get a Prize card for you.  Later in games, when Pokemon can do more damage when attacking, this card is pretty worthless since it won't be able to do much damage with Karate Chop.  So, the only way I would recommend using this card is at the very beginning of the game, otherwise I would pass on using this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Pangoro, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Although this card can do up to 60 damage per turn for only two Energy cards, it is limited in that it only has one move, and its only move requires two Energy cards to attack instead of one.  So again, this card can be used in a Fighting type deck, but there certainly are better cards out there to use.
