Fletchinder -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Fletchinder Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fletchinder from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card set.  Fletchinder is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Fletchinder does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Peck, for one fire energy card this move does 20 damage.  Fletchinder's second move is called Combustion, and for three energy cards, two fire and one colorless, this move does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fletchinder is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Fletchling into play (I will be reviewing Fletchling from this set in a few weeks since it is a colorless type Pokemon) and then evolve Fletchling into Fletchinder.  Fletchinder does have a stage 2 evolution in Talonflame that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Fletchinder is the final evolution in this line.  Since I haven't reviewed Fletchling from this set yet, I'll just assume it is average, so with this assumption, the only way I would use even one of these Fletchinder cards in a deck would be if I planned on getting Fletchinder into the active Pokemon spot the second turn in the game, and using Peck right away.  I wouldn't recommend using Combustion unless you're using this card with Talonflame, because this move requires too much time to set up for a Pokemon with only 80 HP.  So if you really want to use this line in a deck, I wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line of Fletchling and Fletchinder.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  This card does have two average to above average moves and a low retreat cost, but would have been a much better card if it had 90 HP instead of 80.  So again, this is a below average card, but if you would like a quick Stage 1 card in your deck, this card is definitely recommended.
