Voltorb -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Voltorb Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Voltorb from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Voltorb is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Voltorb's Ability is called Destiny Burst and says that if Voltorb is your active Pokemon and is knocked out, if you get a heads when you flip a coin, you can put 5 damage counters on the Pokemon that knocked you out.  Besides the Ability, Voltorb just has one move called Rollout, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Voltorb is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Electrode, 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 could see using this card in any type deck if you need one more card in your deck.  Even though this card has a low hp, this card could work any time during the game because of its Ability, you don't even have to put any energy cards on Voltorb just put it on your bench and if you have to put a card into the active Pokemon spot you can put this one in there and then potentially do 50 damage when it is knocked out.  With that being said, I personally wouldn't use this card in a deck because of its low hp and the 50/50 chance you have at Voltorb's Ability actually working.

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. I like that this card has an Ability in addition to a normal, average, basic Pokemon move.  I wish Destiny Burst would be a little better, but it definitely intrigues me and could definitely affect the way a game turns out.  So this card wouldn't be my first choice to put into a deck, but as a last resort, this card would be perfect.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
