Roselia #12/124 -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Roselia Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Roselia from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Roselia Pokemon card reviews from this set.  Roselia is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  Its stage 1 evolution is Roserade and there are two Roserade cards in this set as well.  Roselia has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Roselia does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Double Whip and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.  Roselia's second move is called Relaxing Fragrance which takes one grass energy card and removes 30 damage and heals all special conditions from this Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Roselia is a basic Pokemon card that has two evolution cards in this set, I would not use Roselia in the active Pokemon spot if I didn't have to, I would start putting energy cards on Roselia, one or two, and leave Roselia on the bench until it evolves into one of the two Roserade cards.  If you have to put Roselia into the active Pokemon spot the strategy is quite simple, I would attack with Double Whip until I either can evolve it into Roserade, or until I have a special condition on Roselia or am about to be knocked out, in that case I would use Relaxing Fragrance instead of Double Whip.  It is too early to say how many of each Pokemon in this line you would put in a grass type deck, but if you're looking to use just Roselia in a deck, I wouldn't use more than 1 at this point.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  This card is a below average, basic Pokemon card.  There are a few good things about this card, it does have a good hp, one average move, and a low retreat cost, however the reason I'm giving this card a low rating is because it can't do much damage, and the little damage it can do isn't guaranteed.  I would rather have a Pokemon that is guaranteed to do 20 damage a turn as their only move than a Pokemon like this one that has two moves and the move that does damage isn't guaranteed.
