Fraxure -- Noble Victories Pokemon Card Review

Fraxure Noble Victories Pokemon Card Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fraxure from the Noble Victories Pokemon Card Set.  This is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It does not have a weakness or resistance, and has a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Fraxure doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Scratch and does 20 damage for one colorless energy card.  Fraxure's second move is called Dual Chop which takes two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card that has a stage 2 evolution in Haxorus, you'll definitely want to use Haxorus if you have Fraxure in your deck.  I would recommend keeping Fraxure on the bench until you can evolve it into Haxorus.  Once you get Haxorus on your bench you can then move it into the active Pokemon spot, but if for some reason you have to put Fraxure into the active Pokemon spot I would recommend using Dual Chop every turn because it has a potential for higher damage, the only time I would recommend using Scratch would be if the defending Pokemon will be knocked out by 20 damage or less.  But once again, I would try as quickly as possible to evolve Fraxure into Haxorus and attack with Haxorus.  If I were to use Fraxure in a deck, I would use a 3-2-1 line of Axew, Fraxure, and Haxorus, in any type of deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  To me, this is a below average Pokemon card and a stage 1 Pokemon card that I do not want to use but am forced to if I want to use Haxorus.  Neither of Fraxure's moves are very good, but the card has a decent hp, and no resistance which will make it easier to survive attacks and evolve it into Haxorus.
