Roserade GL -- Rising Rivals Pokemon Card Review

Roserade GL Pokemon Card Rising Rivals SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Roserade GL from the Rising Rivals set. This is a basic, grass type Pokemon with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It does not have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Poison Blind which takes one colorless energy card and does 10 damage plus the defending Pokemon is poisoned and can't retreat during their next turn. Roserade GL's second move is called Long Whip and for two energy cards, one each of colorless and grass it does 30 damage and if the defending Pokemon is affected by a special condition you can do this 30 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon instead.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
As far as strategy goes, I would use Poison Blind first and Long Whip second, neither move is very impressive but I would definitely inflict a special condition on the defending Pokemon first that way even if you retreat Roserade GL or it gets knocked out you can still leave an impression the defending Pokemon. I may consider using this card in a spread damage type deck and making sure I am able to do 30 damage to one of the benched Pokemon when I am using Long Whip.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. It is pretty average overall, I like how it can poison the defending Pokemon and how its attacks don't acquire that much energy so it is a fast card to use.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's review of Roserade GL from the Rising Rivals set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Shiftry from the same set.
