Rufflet -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Rufflet Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rufflet from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Rufflet 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.  Rufflet does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Incessant Peck, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 10 damage plus 20 more damage for each heads you get when you flip a coin until you get a tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rufflet is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Braviary, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, I would not suggest using Rufflet in a deck.  I say this because Rufflet only has one move which requires two energy cards so it isn't the quickest move, plus the only move it does have does below average damage unless you get some heads when flipping a coin.  And because Rufflet is a little slower, it won't be good to have it in the active Pokemon spot with only 50 hp.  So those are the reasons why I wouldn't use this card in a deck.  If you have to, you'll want to get this card into the active Pokemon spot early, then use Incessant Peck as often as you can.  The reason you'll want to get this card in early is because later on in the game when your opponent has their Pokemon set up, they should easily be able to knock out a card with 50 hp in one move.

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.  I am giving this card a below average rating because it only has one move and no Ability, plus its only move requires two energy cards to use and depends highly on luck.  The low hp on this card also doesn't help its rating.  The reason I'm not giving this card a 1 is because Incessant Peck could do a good amount of damage if you're lucky.

So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Rufflet from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Rufflet's stage 1 evolution in Braviary, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
