Wobbuffet -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Wobbuffet Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wobbuffet from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Wobbuffet is a Basic, Psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 120.  Wobbuffet has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, 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 Shadowy Knot, for three Psychic Energy cards, this move does 50 damage times the amount of Colorless Energy in your opponent's Active Pokemon's retreat cost.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wobbuffet 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 Wobbuffet.  So knowing this, there are two things to note about this card, the first would be that it requires a good amount of Psychic Energy cards, so it is slow to set up as well to retreat, plus, you can't use any Double Colorless Energy cards with this card, so you're going to want to use it in a majority Psychic type deck.  With that being said, because it is so slow to set up, and requires some luck to do major damage, I wouldn't include more than one of this card in a deck, if I were to use this card at all.  I could see this card doing 150 to 200 damage against some Pokemon GX, but so many Pokemon out there have free retreat costs or only one Colorless Energy retreat costs, that it makes no sense to use this card in a deck.  When using this card, it would be best to get it set up on the Bench, then use a Trainer like Guzma to switch Wobbuffet into the Active Pokemon spot against one of your opponent's Pokemon that is not set up and/or has a high retreat cost.

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.  Although this card has an excellent HP and the potential to do a good amount of damage, this card is just too risky to use in my opinion.  The card really depends on the Pokemon your opponent is playing, and you need to get this card set up quickly, otherwise it may sit in the Active Pokemon spot doing nothing.
