Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Beedrill from the Rising Rivals set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon with an hp of 110. It has a +30 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power called Flutter Wings lets you once per turn search your deck for a grass energy card and move it to your hand. Besides the Poke-Power, Beedrill has one move called Needle Shock that does 30 damage for three energy cards, one grass and two colorless. Besides doing the damage as long as you didn't use Needle Shock the turn before the defending Pokemon is poisoned and paralyzed.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
As far as strategy goes, I would recommend adding a lot of grass Pokemon in your deck that require a lot of energy to attack since you can use Beedrill's Poke-Power to always make sure you can attach at least one energy card to a Pokemon each turn. My suggestion with Beedrill would be to put it into the active Pokemon spot, use Needle Shock and inflict the special conditions on that Pokemon, and retreat it the next turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would rate this card a 2 out of 5. Even though it can get energy to your hand each turn and inflict special conditions on defending Pokemon it just isn't that great. It has a low hp and I wish you could move the energy card from your deck directly to a Pokemon, also only being able to do 30 damage for three energy cards isn't very good at all.
