Voltorb -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Voltorb Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Voltorb from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Voltorb is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Voltorb does not have an Ability, and it only has the one move called Static Shock which requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Voltorb is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Electrode, I would recommend pairing this card with Electrode and then evolving Voltorb into Electrode on your bench.  If you plan on using Voltorb on its own or as a starter type Pokemon, you'll have no choice but to use Static Shock every turn.  I wouldn't recommend using Voltorb on its own, but if you are looking for one more card to put in a lightning type deck this isn't the worst card to put in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is below average basic Pokemon card.  Because this card only has one move, even though it is an average move, and a below average hp, I am giving this card a below average rating.  This card doesn't have much to it, so that's why this review doesn't have much to it.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Voltorb from the Boundaries Crossed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Voltorb's stage 1 evolution in Electrode, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

1. Voltorb is red on top, white on the bottom. For Electrode, it's the other way around.
2. While Voltorb has no mouth, Electrode has a characteristic, grinning mouth.
3. Voltorb's eyes are a pair of triangular, white eyes with small, black pupils and thick eyelids. Electrode has a pair of small, black dots as eyes with long, thin black eyebrows.
4. Electrode is significantly bigger than Voltorb.

Thanks

Voltorb is like a pokeball, red top, white bottom. Whilst electrode has the colours flipped. Making white on top and red on the bottom. I guess if Electrod wasn't bigger, and both were upside down facing away you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between them.

Voltorb is red on top, white on bottom. Electrode is red on bottom, white on top, and has the :D face.

You also just copied over the review from Pikachu, word for word except for the question.
