Ducklett -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Ducklett Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ducklett from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Ducklett is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to lighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Ducklett does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Rain Splash which requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ducklett is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Swanna, I would recommend keeping Ducklett on your bench and evolving it into Swanna before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  With that being said, Ducklett is a bit slow to be a very good starter Pokemon, but if you are okay not attacking that first turn, Ducklett can do 20 damage every turn with Rain Splash, plus its 70 hp should make Ducklett last long enough in the active Pokemon spot to either knock out the defending Pokemon or survive until you are able to evolve it into Swanna.  Because of this, I would recommend including 1 Ducklett Pokemon card in a water type deck, even if you don't plan on using Swanna.  Other than that, there really is no other strategy to talk about with this card since it is a basic Pokemon and only has one move that only does damage, nothing extra.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Even  though it can't attack for one energy card, I am still giving this card an average rating because its only move is an average move which does average damage for the average required amount of energy cards plus its hp is above average.  So I don't think this card is mandatory in any deck, but it is definitely a nice card to include if you're looking for one more card for your deck.

Ducklett wears the the black sunglasses. Also you guys must be thinking of the episode where ducklett steals sandile's glasses with the red frame and that is a different epsisode. Primetime talks about the episode where Ash travels to Driftveil city and meets that motorcycle dude.
