Litwick -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Litwick Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Litwick from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Litwick is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Litwick does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Singe, this move requires one fire energy card and burns the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Litwick's second move is called Live Coal, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Litwick is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Lampent and a stage 2 evolution in Chandelure, 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, this card wouldn't be one to use in a deck on its own.  I say this because Litwick's quickest move, Singe, requires some luck to actually burn the defending Pokemon and then if you do burn the defending Pokemon it requires another coin flip to see if the burn will actually do damage.  Live Coal is an average move, but I would have preferred something a bit better from Litwick's first move, so without using either Lampent or Chandelure with this card I cannot recommend using it on its own.  If you do have this card in your fire type deck, you'll want to get this card into the active Pokemon spot early and then use Live Coal most turns unless you're facing a Pokemon with a high hp or if you're going to be knocked out the next turn, if either of these things are true I would recommend using Singe over Live Coal.

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 has average hp, a low retreat cost, and two moves, I'm still giving this card a below average rating because neither of Litwick's moves are very good, and the move that really matters on a basic/starter Pokemon card like this is the one that requires one energy card, and Singe is definitely below average so that is the main reason why I'm giving this card a below average rating.
