Tympole -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Tympole Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tympole from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Tympole is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Tympole does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Surprise Attack, this move requires one water energy card and does 20 damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin, otherwise the move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tympole is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Palpitoad and a stage 2 evolution in Seismitoad, 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 Tympole only has the one move that depends entirely on a coin flip.  So if you plan on using this card as a starter Pokemon in your deck, you're going to want to get it into the active Pokemon spot early and use Surprise Attack every turn, but your deck won't be off to a good start if you move Tympole into the active Pokemon spot and then flip several tails in a row.  Because of this, I would not use Tympole in a deck on its own.

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 end up not doing any damage at all, I am not giving this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  I am not doing this because this card still has an average hp, low retreat cost, and the potential to do 20 damage per turn which is above average for only one energy card.  With this being said, again I do not recommend using this card in a deck without its evolutions.
