Skrelp -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Skrelp Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skrelp from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Skrelp is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Skrelp does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Spit Poison, this move requires one psychic energy card and poisons the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skrelp is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Dragalge, which I'll be in a couple of weeks since it is a dragon type 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 not suggest using this card in a deck because it only has the one move and the only move that Skrelp does have is based on a coin flip and can't actually do any damage.  If you were to use this card in a deck, you'd want to pair it with Pokemon that can also inflict special conditions and you'd want to get this card into the active Pokemon spot early in the game because it has a low hp.  But again, I would definitely not use this card in a deck without Dragalge.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an extremely poor basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set and a shame that a Pokemon's first appearance in the TCG is so bad.  Really the only good thing about this card is its retreat cost, but you won't need to use that if you don't even put this card in your deck.  Skrelp only has one move, which may not do anything at all and even if you get a heads, it doesn't actually do any damage when using Spit Poison.  So I would recommend staying away from this basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.
