Sandygast -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Sandygast Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sandygast from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Sandygast is a Basic, Psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Absorb Life, for one Psychic Energy card, this move does 10 damage, plus it heals 10 damage from itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sandygast is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Palossand, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, 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, although this card does have an above average HP for a Basic Pokemon that has a Stage 1 evolution, there is no reason to use this card in a deck.  The main reason this card shouldn't be used is that it can only do 10 damage maximum when attacking, meaning you're never going to knock out an EX or GX card that has 150+ HP.  If you are using Palossand in your deck, this is a good start to the line since it can attack quickly if you're unable to evolve Sandgast before putting it in the Active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Palossand, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card from the Burning Shadows set.  Like I mentioned above, by itself, this card is way too limited and way too weak to use.  Paired with Palossand this card is average and certainly could be used.
