Victini -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Victini Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Victini from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Vicitni is a basic, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Victini does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Collect which requires one colorless energy card and allows you to draw one card.  Victini's second move is called Relentless Flame which requires two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get in a row when you flip a coin.  However as soon as you get a tails, it is done attacking, so the move may end up doing 0 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Victini is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  I would mostly use this card for its Collect move, it is a quick way to get extra cards in your hand.  I would use this card as a starter Pokemon and use Collect a couple of turns to get many cards in my hand, then try my luck once or twice with Relentless Flame, then retreat Victini back to the bench, leaving it there until I need to get cards into my hand again.  I would not use more than 1 Victini card in a deck, and since this card requires mostly colorless type energy cards, this card works well in any deck.  Like I said, I would use only 1 Victini card in a deck, if you choose to use this card, however I personally wouldn't use this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  Even though this move does have a high hp, and a low retreat cost, and is fairly quick, I am still giving this card a below average rating.  The reason I'm doing this is because neither of its moves are very good, and neither can for sure do damage every turn.  So if you're looking for a starter Pokemon that can do some damage, you'll have to look elsewhere.  I would not recommend using this card in a deck.
