Rufflet -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Rufflet Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rufflet from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Rufflet  is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rufflet does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Chirp and for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for two Pokemon that have a fighting type resistance and put them into your hand.  Rufflet's second move is called Sharp Beak and for two colorless energy cards, this move does 10 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rufflet is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Braviary, I would recommend keeping Rufflet on your bench and evolving it into Braviary(which I'll be reviewing tomorrow) before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  However, if you want a quick way to evolve Rufflet into Braviary without using trainers/supporters, I would move Rufflet into the active Pokemon spot, use Chirp one turn, and the next turn evolve Rufflet into Braviary, since Braviary has a fighting type resistance, Chirp will allow you to get Braviary into your hand.  So if you have to move Rufflet into the active Pokemon spot, I would first use the above strategy, but if you can't for some reason, you'll have no choice but to use Sharp Beak every turn once you get two energy cards on Rufflet and then hope for some luck so that this move does 30 damage instead of 10.  I would not use this card on its own, I would only use it with Braviary, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an below average basic Pokemon card.  Two good things about this card are its Ability which will allow you to get an evolution into your hand quick, and the fact that this card is a colorless type Pokemon card so that it can be used in any deck.  However, neither of its moves are too spectacular, and it does have a below average hp, so overall I think this is a card that isn't that great.
