Piplup -- Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Review

Piplup Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Piplup from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set.  Piplup is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Piplup does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Water Splash, for two energy cards, one each of colorless and water, this move does 10 damage, plus if you get a heads it does 20 more damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Piplup is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Prinplup and a stage 2 evolution in Empoleon, 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, I would not use this card as a starter type Pokemon in a water type deck.  I say this because Piplup is a little slower than I'd like and unless you get a heads when you flip a coin, you will be doing below average damage every turn.  If you choose to use this card in your deck, don't use more than one, get it into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, use Water Splash every turn, and retreat it when you have a better benched Pokemon setup.

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.  This card does have an average hp, average retreat cost, and a possible above average move, but if you aren't lucky while using this card, it can do a maximum of 10 damage per turn, so because of this I would not use this card on its own.
