Togedemaru -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Togedemaru Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Togedemaru from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Togedemaru is a Basic, Lightning type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  Togedemaru has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Metal type Pokemon, and a one 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 Rollout, for one Lightning Energy, this move does 20 damage.  The second move on this card is called Electrosmash, for two Energy cards, one each of Lightning and Colorless, this move does 40 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Togedemaru 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 Togedemaru.  So knowing this, unless you're desperate for a starter type Pokemon in a Lightning type deck, there is really no reason to use this card in a deck.  Sure, 20 damage for one Energy card early in the game is decent, but later in games, this card can't do much, and with only 80 HP, later in games it is pretty easy to get knocked out.  So in my opinion, this is a card you may see in a theme deck, but there is no reason to use this card in a competitive deck.

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, I wouldn't use this card in a deck, but overall it isn't too bad, if you use it as a starter type Pokemon.  This card does have an above average HP, at least for early in games, and it does have two moves, with the potential to do up to 60 damage.  But again, unless you have no other options, I would look elsewhere for a Basic, Lightning type Pokemon to use in a deck.
