Bellsprout -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Bellsprout Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bellsprout from the Furious Fists set.  This is the first card in the Furious Fists set.  Bellsprout is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Bellsprout does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Vine Whip, this move requires one grass energy card and does 10 damage.  Bellsprout's second move is called Knock Off, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and allows you to discard a random card from your opponent's hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bellsprout is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Weepinbell and a stage 2 evolution in Victreebel, 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 wouldn't use this card in a deck because it has a below average HP and can only do 10 damage maximum.  But if you decide to use this card in your deck, I would make sure to not use more than 1 and use this card as a starter type Pokemon because it is pretty weak, but be okay in the active Pokemon spot to start the game.  You would use Bellsprout's Vine Whip move most turns to do damage to the opposing Pokemon but if you want to give yourself time to set up your benched Pokemon, extra time that is, you could use Knock Off a bunch of turns and hope to either make your opponent discard an energy card or an evolution card that they needed, and if your opponent doesn't have any way of getting Pokemon from their discard pile back into their hand or deck, Bellsprout's Knock Off move could be very deadly to your opponent.

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 Furious Fists set.  I was going to give this card a 2 rating until I read about its Knock Off move and how effective this card could be in ruining your opponent's strategy, but I can't give this card any higher rating than that because the card can only do 10 damage total and 50 HP isn't that great for a Basic Pokemon.  So this card could definitely be used in a deck, but I would use it with caution because it is a weaker card overall.
