Taillow -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Taillow Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Taillow from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Taillow is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 50. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Taillow does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  The only move it has is called Peck, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Taillow is a basic Pokemon card that has an evolution in Swellow normally I would recommend using this card with its evolution.  However, Swellow has not been in any of the recent sets (yet), so if you go to an official tournament or league, you'll just have to use Taillow on its own instead of with Swellow.  With that being said, because this card is a colorless type Pokemon it can fit into any type deck, but because it can't evolve and can only do 10 damage you'll definitely not want to use more than 1 of these cards in a deck if you choose to use it at all.  Strategy wise, you'll have to put one energy card on Taillow and use Peck whenever it is in the active Pokemon spot.  Personally, I would not use this card in any of my decks, it is too weak in my opinion.

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 I'm giving this card a below average rating, it still has a couple of positives, this card is a colorless type card, so that is good, and it only requires one energy card to attack, which is also good.  However, this card has a below average hp, plus it can only do 10 damage max and only has the one move.  So I would not recommend using this card in a deck.
