Komala -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Komala Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Komala from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Komala is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  Komala has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Comatose is the name of this card's Ability, it says whenever Komala is your Active Pokemon and you attach an Energy card to it, Komala is put to Sleep.  Besides the Ability, Komala just has one move called Hypno Roll, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 100 damage, only if Komala is Asleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Komala is a Basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Komala.  So knowing this, the only way to use this card is in the Active Pokemon spot, since both its Ability and move depend on Komala being in the Active Pokemon spot.  First you need Komala in the Active Pokemon spot to use its Ability to put Komala to Sleep, then you need it in the Active Pokemon spot so it remains Asleep and so that you can use Hypno Roll.  This card can do major damage when attacking, but for a card that requires three Energy cards to attack and only has a HP of 80, I would look elsewhere for a powerful, attacking type Pokemon to use in your deck.  Add in the stress this card causes trying to make sure it is Asleep every turn when trying to attack, and I think this card is more trouble than it is worth.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Like I mentioned above, although this card can do major damage every single turn when attacking, it is so hard to make sure Komala is Asleep each turn that it isn't worth the trouble using this card in a deck.  Plus, since this card only has 80 HP, it can't last in the Active Pokemon spot more than a couple of turns.  So while I think this card has some intrigue to it, and can certainly do major damage, I would pass on this card altogether.
