Staryu -- Pokemon X and Y Review

Staryu Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Staryu from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Staryu 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.  Staryu does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Reckless Charge, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage but it unfortunately does 10 damage to Staryu.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Staryu is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Starmie, 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 I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck because even though its only move does above average damage, it does damage to itself which makes this move more towards average to a below average move.  So unless you really need one more card in your deck, I would not recommend using this card.  If you do use it in your deck, your strategy will only be to use Reckless Charge every turn when you can.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Other than doing damage to itself when using Reckless Charge this card is average overall, average hp, low retreat cost, and it does do 30 damage a turn.  But like I stated earlier, this card is not that great so I wouldn't use it in a deck without Starmie.

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