Caterpie -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Caterpie Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Caterpie from the Flashfire set.  This is the first card in the Flashfire set and the first of many Flashfire reviews to come.  Caterpie is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Caterpie's Ability is called Adaptive Evolution and says that you can evolve Caterpie as soon as it is put in play if you like.  The only move Caterpie has is called Bug Bite, this move requires one grass energy card and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Caterpie is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Metapod and a stage 2 evolution in Butterfree, 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, this card isn't that great.  I say this because you can't utilize its Ability and evolve it right away if you're using this card on its own.  And if you can't evolve it, this card is quite limited in just being able to use Bug Bite.  This move isn't all that bad, but with only 40 hp on the card, you'll get knocked out quite quick later in games.  So I would not recommend using this card in a deck on its own.  If you choose to, make sure to not use very many of these and use Bug Bite as soon as possible, and retreat Caterpie as soon as you get a Pokemon set up on your bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set and puts a bad taste in your mouth regarding cards from this set.  But really, the only thing bad about this card is its extremely low hp, otherwise this card's Ability is good as well as its only move, it is just limited.
