Roselia -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Roselia Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Roselia from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Roselia 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 one colorless energy card retreat cost. Roselia does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that Roselia has is called Sleep Powder, this move requires one grass energy card and does 10 damage, plus if you get a heads the defending Pokemon is put to sleep.  Roselia's second move is called Cut, this move requires two grass energy cards and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Roselia is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Roserade, 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 would highly recommend using this card as a starter type Pokemon in your grass type deck.  I would recommend using up to 4 of these in a deck.  With 4 in your deck, you'd have a great shot at getting Roselia into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, you could then use Sleep Powder, hopefully flip a heads, then after that use Cut every turn, all while your opponent's active Pokemon is asleep giving you a ton of time to set up your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very good basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set and a basic Pokemon card that would work perfectly in a grass type deck.  There really isn't anything I dislike about this card, I like how it has two moves, and both moves either do average damage or do a fair amount of damage plus inflict a special condition.  So if you're looking for a starter type Pokemon for your deck or need 1 more card to put into your deck, this card is the perfect fit.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Roselia from the Flashfire set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Roselia's stage 1 evolution Roserade, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

I don't thing you know what a starter-type Pokemon is.
Stuff like Emolga (Legendary Treasures), Xerneas, and Yveltal are starters because they either help you get Pokemon into play that are crucial to your strategy, or get Energy onto your attackers so you can start using attacks.
A starter in Pokemon is a Pokemon that helps you kick off your strategy early game. Roselia does near-irrelevant damage, has a luck based move (the sleep's total chance of working is 25% and your opponent can always Switch, Escape Rope, Rush In, or use Verdant Wind to get out of it), and get's one-shotted by nearly everything good. This is not a starter Pokemon.
