Numel -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Numel Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Numel from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Numel is a basic, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Numel does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Flamethrower which requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, and does 60 damage, however after using Flamethrower, you must discard an energy card attached to Numel.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Numel is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Camerupt, I would recommend keeping Numel on your bench and evolving it into Camerupt (which I'll be reviewing tomorrow) before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  I would not move Numel into the active Pokemon spot without evolving it first and I would definitely not use Numel in a deck on its own.  If for some reason you are forced to put Numel into the active Pokemon spot, you really have no choice on what to do, as soon as you get three energy cards on Numel you'll have to use Flamethrower.  My advice would be to not retreat Numel, because it costs three energy cards, and just try to evolve it into Camerupt as soon as possible.  So like I said earlier, I would not use this card on its own, and depending on how tomorrow's review goes, I may never use this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very disappointing basic Pokemon card.  Even though this move does have a high hp, and can do 60 damage, I'm still giving this the lowest rating possible for a card.  The reason I'm doing this is because Flamethrower even though it does average damage for three energy cards, this move is on a basic Pokemon, so it is extremely slow, and once you get three energy cards on Numel and use Flamethrower you have to discard an energy card.  Plus, if you have to put this card into the active Pokemon spot immediately to start the game, it will take forever to either attack or retreat. So again, I do not recommend using this card in a deck, especially without Camerupt.
