Lumineon -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Lumineon Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lumineon from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Lumineon is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lumineon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Neon Sign, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for up to 2 Pokemon and put them into your hand.  Lumineon's second move is called Water Pulse, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lumineon is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Finneon into play (I reviewed Finneon from this set yesterday) and then evolve Finneon into Lumineon.  If you read yesterday's review of Finneon, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card, it had a lower HP, and was very limited in what it could do, only having one move that could do 10 damage.  So looking at this Lumineon card knowing how Finneon is from this set, I cannot recommend using either of these two cards in a deck.  If you do want to use these two Pokemon in a deck, definitely do not use more than 1 of each.  I would try and get this Pokemon family into the active Pokemon spot very early in the game, since both have low HP and neither card can do more than 30 damage.  You could use Lumineon to set up your benched Pokemon by calling Neon Sign the first turn, but I would rather put the defending Pokemon to sleep with Water Pulse, then go and use Neon Sign.  Regardless, this Lumineon card will work decently early in the game, but late in games I would not trust this card, its HP is just too low for the amount of damage it can do.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average to slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  This card just has too low of an HP for me to want to use, and it basically only has one move, at least one that can do damage.  If you really want to use Neon Sign on this card, I would much rather put a couple of trainer or supporter cards in the deck than this Pokemon family.  Altogether, Finneon and Lumineon only get a 2 out of 5 rating from me, the same rating I gave each of these cards individually.
