Chespin -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Chespin Pokemon X and Y Card Review
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chespin from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Chespin is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Chespin does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Pin Missile, this move requires one grass energy card and does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chespin is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Quilladin and a stage 2 evolution in Chesnaught, 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 is a risky basic Pokemon card to have in your grass type deck.  Even though this card can do 40 damage, potentially, it may do much less, and this card does require two energy cards to retreat, so you're going to have to attach more energy to Chespin than it requires to attack.  I personally wouldn't use this card in a deck without its evolutions, but I could see using up to 1 of these cards in a deck on its own, if you have 1 open spot that you need to fill.  Of course, any basic Pokemon with a lower hp, 60 or under, that doesn't evolve, you'll want to get it into the active Pokemon spot early and then use Pin Missile every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly below average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  This card is very average overall, other than its high retreat cost.  I like the potential of this card being able to do 40 damage for only one energy card, but because this card requires some risk to use, I would not use it and that is why I'm giving this card an average to a little below average rating.
