Pineco -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

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

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pineco is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Forretress, which I'll be reviewing in a few weeks since it is a metal type Pokemon card, 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 would consider using this card in a metal type deck, or any type deck if you are using it by itself, as a starter type Pokemon.  The only downside to using this card in a deck would be you have to discard all energy cards required for attacking when retreating it and the card is pretty slow.  So if you were to use this card in a deck, I wouldn't use more than 1 of these, you would get two energy cards on Pineco and use Ram every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly below average basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  I like the hp and only move that this card has, but as far as a basic Pokemon goes, the retreat cost is quite high, and because this card only has one move it is limited in what it can do, and the only move this card has requires two energy cards which makes this card slower for a basic Pokemon card.  So if you're building a deck, this card definitely isn't the worst card you could use, but there are definitely better ones out there.

Good review of the Pineco... did you happen to notice your first statement says you will be reviewing pansage? :P ... I have seen people online using devolution spray matched with Sableye/junkhunt to strangle out decks. Have you seen the same?

as for the answer for the code card... im going with 6/2/2014.
