Geodude -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Geodude Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Geodude from the Flashfire set.  Geodude is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Geodude does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Rollout, for one fighting energy card this move does 10 damage.  Geodude's second move is called Flail, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 10 damage times the number of damage counters on Geodude.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Geodude is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Graveler and a stage 2 evolution in Golem, 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, I may consider using one of these cards in a fighting type deck as a starter type Pokemon.  I would ideally get this card into the active Pokemon spot very early in the game, use Rollout until Geodude had 20 damage on it, then use Flail after that, eventually being able to do 50 damage a turn right before Geodude is knocked out.  And if you happen to get Geodude into the active Pokemon spot later in the game, because Flail can do up to 50 damage, at least you'll be able to make somewhat of an impact on that more powerful Pokemon you're facing.

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 Flashfire set.  There really isn't anything I dislike about this card, everything on this card is about average, the reason I'm not giving this card a better rating than a 3 is because the card can't do that much damage without taking on damage itself and you'd ideally want to be able to do more than 10 damage every turn no matter how much damage is on Geodude.  But overall, it is a good card that can be used in a deck on its own.
