Finneon -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Finneon Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Finneon from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Finneon is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Finneon does not have an Ability and the only move it has is called Pound, which requires one water energy card and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Finneon is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Lumineon, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, 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 this card is too limited to warrant use.  Because this card has a lower HP and only one move, there are much better cards out there to use as starter type Pokemon in a water type deck.  If you have to, you could use one of these cards in a deck, but I wouldn't recommend it.  All you can do with this card, is try and get it in the active Pokemon spot early in the game, attach one energy card to it, use Pound every turn until you get a benched Pokemon set up, then retreat Finneon to your bench and probably never use it during the remainder of the game.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Lumineon, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, this card is just too simple and limited to make me recommend using this card.  The one move it does have is average, but with a lower HP, and nothing else on the card, it just isn't that great of a card to use.
