Sliggoo -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Sliggoo Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sliggoo from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card set.  Sliggoo is a Stage 1, Dragon type Pokemon card, with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Sliggoo does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Division, for one Colorless Energy card, this move allows you to search for up to 2 Sliggoo cards and put them onto your Bench.  Tackle is this card's second move, for two Energy cards, one each of Water and Fairy, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sliggoo is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Goomy into play (I reviewed Goomy from this set yesterday) and then evolve Goomy into Sliggoo.  Goomy does have a Stage 2 evolution in Goodra, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Sliggoo is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Goomy, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Similar to this Sliggoo card, Goomy has a below average HP, and two somewhat weak moves, even though it does have the same Tackle move as Sliggoo.  So knowing this about Goomy and looking at this Sliggoo card, unless you plan on using several Goodra cards in your deck, and need a quick way to get Goodra set up, essentially skipping over Goomy by using this card's Division move, I would look elsewhere for Pokemon to use in your deck.  Not only does this card have a very low HP for a Stage 1 card, but its only attacking move requires two distinct types of Energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:  
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a well below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  The only reason to use this card in a deck is if you have to use it to get to Goodra, otherwise, this card is too weak and has too low of a HP to warrant use in a deck.  Together with Goomy from this set, which is also weak, I would give the two Pokemon a 1 out of 5 rating.
