Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pichu from the Arceus set. This is a basic, baby type Pokemon card. It is an electric type Pokemon, has an hp of 50, a weakness of 10 to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Like other Baby Pokemon, Pichu has a Poke-Power called Baby Evolution which says that once during your turn you may put Pikachu on this card, if you do you may remove all damage from Pichu. Besides the Poke-Power, Pichu has one move called Baby Steps which requires no energy cards and says that you may look at the top 5 cards in your deck and put one of them into your hand.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I wouldn't recommend using Baby Pokemon, but if you would like to use this card in your deck make sure that you get Pichu out early, so that you won't get knocked out right away and when you evolve into Pikachu it will be healed, and secondly you can use Pichu's only move while not using any energy cards, and get an important card into your hand right away.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. For a baby Pokemon card this card isn't too bad. I like how it doesn't require any energy at all so you can spend time setting up your benched Pokemon when this card is in the active Pokemon spot and while you are stalling with Pichu you can use its only move to get cards you need for your benched Pokemon.
