Roserade -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Roserade Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Roserade from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Roserade is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy retreat cost.  Roserade does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Whiplash, for one grass energy card, this move allows you to flip a coin until you get tails, for each heads you may discard an energy card attached to your opponent's active Pokemon.  Roserade's second move is called Mega Drain, this move requires three grass type energy cards and does 70 damage, plus it allows you to heal 20 damage from Roserade.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Roserade is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Roselia into play (I reviewed Roselia from this set yesterday) and then evolve Roselia into Roserade.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Roselia was a very good starter type Pokemon card that should definitely be used in any grass type deck out there.  It had two pretty good moves, and could make the defending Pokemon go to sleep.  Because Roselia is such a good basic Pokemon, you can easily use it on its own, and because this Roselia card isn't as good in my opinion, I would use a line of 4-2 or 3-1 of Roselia and Roserade.  I would make sure I have three energy cards on Roselia before evolving it into Roserade and then use Mega Drain every turn.  If you had multiple lines of Roselia and Roserade in your deck, you could save one on your bench and if your opponent has a card that requires a ton of energy cards to attack, you could move Roserade into the active Pokemon and try and discard their energy cards by using Whiplash.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  This card is pretty solid overall, having a low retreat cost, average hp, and two moves.  I wish Whiplash would for sure discard at least an energy card, but Mega Drain is a great move which makes up for the poorness of Whiplash.  So overall, if you're looking for a basic and stage 1 line to put into your grass type deck, this line of Roselia and Roserade is a good option, overall I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, of course Roserade was a 3 and yesterday I gave Roselia a 5.
