Karrablast -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Karrablast Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Karrablast from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Karrablast 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. Karrablast does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Peck, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Karrablast's second move is called Headbutt, for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Karrablast is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Escavalier, which I'll be reviewing in a couple of weeks since it is a metal type Pokemon, 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 if you're building a grass type deck and are looking for starter type Pokemon cards, I would definitely recommend giving this card a look.  Outside of having a little lower HP than I'd like, this card is pretty good.  You can put it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, do 10 damage the first turn, attach another energy card to it the second turn and do 20 damage every turn after that while getting your other Pokemon set up.  I could see myself using 1 or 2 of these cards in a grass type deck.  Just a word of warning, if you plan to use this card with Escavalier, you'll definitely want to make sure that you have the right energy cards in your deck for both.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Escavalier, this card is an average Basic Pokemon card.  The only thing I am down on with this card is its HP, but everything else is good and makes it a worthy starter type Pokemon.  It has a low retreat cost, and two solid moves.  So you definitely can't go wrong by using this card as a starter type Pokemon card in your deck.
