Rattata -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Rattata Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rattata from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Rattata is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rattata does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Lunge, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin, if you get a tails this move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rattata is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Raticate, 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 recommend using Rattata in a deck.  I say this because Rattata has an extremely low hp, and the only move it has requires two energy cards, and most Pokemon can do 40 damage in two turns, so by the time Rattata could attack it would be knocked out.  Of course, if you do have this card in your deck, you'll want to get it into the active Pokemon spot early since it has a low hp, and use Lunge every single turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card will work in any deck, I'm giving this card my lowest rating because this is one of those cards that may end up doing zero damage for you if you have it in your deck.  Add that to the fact it has a low hp and its move is slow, and you'll see why I would stay away from this card on its own, and see why I gave it a 1 out of 5 rating.
