Floatzel GL -- Rising Rivals Pokemon Card Review

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Floatzel GL from the Rising Rivals set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Incite and this move requires no energy cards and allows you to search your discard pile for up to two supporter cards and put them back into your hand. Floatzel GL's second move is called Giant Wave and for two water energy cards it does 50 damage but Floatzel GL can't use this move twice in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes I would only recommend using this card if you plan on using a lot of supporter cards in your deck, that way when you use them, you can put Floatzel GL into the active Pokemon spot and use Incite to get them back into your hand. Having one of these in your deck if any at all would be the best possible advise for this card, since doing 50 damage in two turns isn't very good.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating, I really don't like SP Pokemon that much and this card is not an exception. It isn't a bad card overall but if you have too many of these cards in your deck it won't help you at all.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
