Shellder -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Shellder from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Shellder is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Shellder does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Rain Splash, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Shellder is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Cloyster, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own this card would be an average basic Pokemon card to use in a water type deck.  I would only use 1 of these cards in a deck on its own only if you need one last card to make your deck have 60 cards.  This card should be put in the active Pokemon spot early in the game and Rain Splash should be used every turn.

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 X and Y set.  This card is quite average overall but could still be used in a deck on its own.  I like its 60 hp, low retreat cost, and one move, nothing here is bad, but the card is quite limited so this card would be a lot better if used with Cloyster too.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Shellder from the X and Y set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Shellder's stage 1 evolution in Cloyster, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
