Pidove -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Pidove Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pidove from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Pidove is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pidove does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  The only move it has is called Razor Wind, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage.  However, when using this move you must flip a coin, if you get a tails this move does nothing at all.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pidove is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Tranquill and a stage 2 evolution in Unfezant, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I would not suggest using Pidove.  I say this because Pidove only has the one move and the only move it has requires two energy cards, so it won't be able to attack right away, and when you can attack, the move only has a 50% chance of doing damage.  So I would not use this card in a deck, but if you choose to, I wouldn't use more than one of these cards in any type deck.  I would try and keep it on the bench, put two energy cards on it, then if I didn't have any other options move Pidove into the active Pokemon spot and use Razor Wind every turn.

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 card may not be able to do any damage at all, I'm still giving this card an okay rating.  I like that everything is average on this card, low retreat cost, average hp, and that it is a colorless type card.  Because Pidove's only move has the potential to do 30 damage, I'm giving this card a 2 instead of a 1.  But again, I would not use this card in any deck.
