Passimian -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Passimian Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Passimian from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Passimian is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 110.  Passimian has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, 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 Punch, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 30 damage.  The second move on this card is called Intentional Grounding, for two Fighting Energy cards, this move does 90 damage, however, you must discard a Pokemon Tool card from your hand to use this move, if you can't, this move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Passimian 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 Passimian.  With this being said, unless you're building a deck that is chalk full of Pokemon Tool cards, potentially if you're using a Garbodor deck, this card probably isn't the best to use in a deck.  Ideally, you'd put two Strong Energy on this card, and then be able to do 130 damage for two Energy cards, as long as you can discard a Pokemon Tool card from your hand when attacking.  Although Punch requires just one Double Colorless Energy, 30 damage isn't enough to warrant use.  So while this card has potentially as a very strong attacker, I don't think it is worth it to have to discard a Pokemon Tool every time when you're trying to do damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Burning Shadows set.  Like I stated above, although this card can pack a punch when set up correctly, it is too risky to use since it depends on Pokemon Tool cards, plus, you want to attach things like Choice Band and Float Stone Trainer cards to your Pokemon, you don't want to have to discard them.
