Psyduck #32/143 -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Psyduck Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Psyduck from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Psyduck Pokemon cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  I'll be reviewing the other one tomorrow.  Psyduck is a basic, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Psyduck does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Dazzle Dance which requires one colorless energy card and confuses the defending Pokemon if you get a heads.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Psyduck is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Golduck, I would recommend keeping Psyduck on your bench and evolving it into Golduck before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  I would definitely keep this card on the bench if I were using this version of Psyduck, tomorrow I'll have to see if the other version of Psyduck from this set is better.  So again, I would not move Psyduck into the active Pokemon spot without evolving it first and I would definitely not use Psyduck in a deck on its own.  If for some reason you are forced to put Psyduck into the active Pokemon spot, you really have no choice on what to do, since it only has the one move.  Once again, do not use this card on your own, but if you use this card with Golduck, I may consider putting cards in the deck that benefit if the defending Pokemon is confused, that way you can use Dazzle Dance and retreat Psyduck the next turn and put that Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot that benefits from the defending Pokemon being confused.

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.  Since I haven't reviewed the other Psyduck card from this set I can't for certain say I would recommend that one over this one, but almost anything would be better than this card.  I guess this card does have a good hp, and low retreat cost, but it can't for sure be any damage, and it may not do anything during a turn if you get a tails when you flip a coin.  So I would recommend staying as far away as possible from this card.
