Carnivine -- Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Review

Carnivine Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Carnivine from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set.  Carnivine is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Carnivine does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Ambush Bite, for two energy cards, one each of grass grass and colorless, this move does 20 damage and if you get a heads when you flip a coin it does an additional 20 damage and you are able to discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Shuckle is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, since this card has only one move that can do a maximum of 40 damage you won't want to use too many of these cards in your grass type deck since it is pretty limited.  I would recommend putting 1 of these in a grass type deck and then putting it into the active Pokemon spot and using Ambush Bite for as many turns as possible.  Since this card doesn't have an Ability or anything, all you can do with the card is use its only move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the Legendary Treasures set.  Even though this card is extremely limited, the one move that it does have in Ambush Bite is a pretty good move, and with 80 hp, the card should be usable anytime during the game.  So I would use this card in a grass type deck, but just not more than 1.
