Heatmor -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Heatmor Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Heatmor from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Heatmor is a Basic, Fire type Pokemon card with a HP of 110.  Heatmor has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Odor Sleuth, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move allows you to flip 2 coins, for each heads, you're able to put a card from your discard pile into your hand.  Searing Flame is the name of the second move on this card, for three Energy cards, one Fire and two Colorless, this move does 60 damage, plus it Burns the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Heatmor 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 Heatmor.  So knowing this, the first thing I would point out is that this card's two moves require a majority of Colorless type Energy cards, meaning it should fit easily into most decks.  This card would be pretty amazing if Odor Sleuth wasn't based off of coin flips, but because it is, it isn't as good, I would much rather use a Trainer card to achieve this same goal than a Pokemon.  Searing Flame does above average damage plus inflicts a Special Condition, it is just slow to set up.  Overall, this card is just okay, it can certainly be used in Fire type decks, but there is nothing special about this card.

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 Burning Shadows set.  Like I mentioned above, this card really isn't that bad overall, it just isn't anything special.  The card does have an above average HP and two moves, both which are decent.  But, this card does require three Energy cards to do damage when attacking, making it slow, and the move that would really help you in battle, Odor Sleuth, may not help you at all if you flip two tails.  I would recommend looking elsewhere when building a Fire type deck.
