Froakie -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Froakie Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Froakie from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Froakie is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Froakie does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Bounce which requires one water energy card and does 10 damage, however if you get a heads when you flip a coin you must move Froakie to the bench and put in a different Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fennekin is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Frogadier and a stage 2 evolution in Greninja, 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 in a deck.  I say this because Froakie has a low hp which makes it an easy target late in games plus the only move it has may end up forcing Froakie to the bench which makes this card a poor starter type Pokemon.  Of course if you use this card in a deck, your only option will be to use Bounce every turn.

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 from the X and Y set that should not be used in a deck on its own.  Because of the reasons stated in the strategy section of this post I would not use this card without its evolutions.  Hopefully Frogadier is a little better than this card when I review it tomorrow.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
