Volbeat -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Volbeat Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Volbeat from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Volbeat is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Volbeat does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Luring Glow, for one grass energy card you may switch your opponent's active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Volbeat's second move is called Signal Beam, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus it confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Volbeat is a basic Pokemon card you will not have to use any other Pokemon with this card in a deck.  This card could definitely be used in a deck because it does have a high hp and it does do 30 damage per turn.  Because the card is a bit slower, you won't want to use more than 2 of these in a deck, but the sooner you get this card into the active Pokemon spot the better.  Once you get two energy cards on Volbeat, you should be able to knock out several Pokemon in two turns or less with Signal Beam.  The reason I'd put two of these in a deck, is because you could use one right away in the active Pokemon spot, then if you include this card in a spread damage type deck, you could put the other Volbeat card in the active Pokemon spot later in the game and use Luring Glow, move one of your opponent's weak Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot and then knock it out with either Volbeat or another Pokemon your next turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an excellent Basic Pokemon card from the Pokemon XY set.  If you're building a grass deck or a spread damage strategy deck, this card should definitely be considered, not only does it dominate early game, but it can be very helpful late in games too.  I like that this card has above average hp, a low retreat cost, and two moves, Signal Beam doing well above average damage.

If you breed Volbeat with a Ditto, there will randomly hatch a Volbeat or an Illumise.
