Pidgey -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Pidgey Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pidgey from the Flashfire set.  Pidgey is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pidgey does not have Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Peck Off, this move requires one colorless energy card to use and does 10 damage, plus before using this move, you may discard all Tool cards attached to your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pidgey is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Pidgeotto and a stage 2 evolution in Pidgeot, 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 probably wouldn't use this card in a deck because it is very limited, but if you want to start out this Pokemon line by using this card in the active Pokemon spot or need one more Basic Pokemon card for your deck, this one won't be that bad because it does have a solid HP, low retreat cost, and the only move it does have is an average move, and it can fit into any type deck since it requires only one colorless energy card.  But again, I personally would not use this card because all you can do every single turn when Pidgey is in the active Pokemon spot is to use Peck Off and do only 10 damage a turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  This card is pretty much average overall for a Basic Pokemon card, but I am giving it a below average rating because it is so limited and if you want to use it without using Pidgeotto and Pidgeot, you're going to be upset that the card can only do 10 damage maximum every single turn.
