Rattata -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Rattata Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rattata from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Rattata is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 30.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rattata does not have an Ability and it only has 1 move.  The only move it has is called Paralyzing Gaze, this move requires one colorless energy card and paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rattata is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Raticate, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll definitely want to use this card with Raticate.  I say this because on its own, Rattata is extremely weak, and does not have a move that for sure does anything.  Its only move has a 50% chance of paralyzing the defending Pokemon but if you have Rattata in the active Pokemon spot other than to start the game, more than likely it will get knocked out in 1 turn.  So my recommendation with this card is to stay away from it at all costs.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an extremely bad basic Pokemon card.  This card has a low hp, a terrible move, and nothing else that is any good at all.  I would never use this card in a deck, and it would be hard to use Raticate in a deck as well if this is the only option to play before using Raticate.

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