Pidgeot -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Pidgeot Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pidgeot from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Pidgeot is a stage 2, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pidgeot does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that it has is called Clutch, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use and does 40 damage, plus it makes your opponent's active Pokemon unable to retreat during their next turn.  Pidgeot's second move is called Strong Gust, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage, plus if you use this move during Pidgeot's next turn, the move will do 120 damage instead of 60.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pidgeot is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pidgey into play and then evolve it into Pidgeotto before you can evolve Pidgeotto into Pidgeot, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both Pokemon were below average but not terrible Pokemon cards that could be used in a deck on their own but something I would recommend doing.  Because of this, if you want to use this Pidgeot card in a deck, I would use only a 1-1-1 line of this Pokemon family, trying to get Pidgey evolved up to Pidgeot on the bench, you can put this family in any type deck since it is a colorless Pokemon family, but I would want to get three energy cards on Pidgeot and use Strong Gust every single turn, doing 60 damage one turn and then 120 damage the next.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  However this card is definitely the best in this line, it does have a below average hp for a Stage 2, but both of the moves this card has are very good, especially Strong Wind, plus the retreat cost is quite low so you could easily move Pidgeot out of the active Pokemon spot later in the game if it got into trouble.  Altogether, I would give this Pokemon line a 2 out of 5 rating, I probably wouldn't use this family in a deck, because individually I gave Pidgey and Pidgeotto 2 ratings and Pidgeot a 3.
