Fletchling -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Fletchling Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fletchling from the Phantom Forces set. Fletchling is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Fletchling 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.  Fletchling's second move is called Quick Attack, for two colorless energy cards this move does 10 damage, plus if you get a heads it does 20 more damage, for a possible total of 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fletchling is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Fletchinder and a stage 2 evolution in Talonflame, which I've reviewed in the past since both Pokemon are fire type, I would recommend you go and read the reviews I have written for those two Pokemon.  To summarize, I thought Fletchinder was a bit below average because even though it had two good moves, its HP was a little low, but I did give Talonflame an above average, it had two excellent moves overall, but again had a little lower HP, but I still recommended the line favorably.  So this post is just going to assume I hadn't reviewed those two Pokemon yet and consider Fletchling on its own.  So on its own, if you really need one more Basic Pokemon card in your deck this card could definitely be used because it can attack quickly and it can do a fair amount of damage, if you're lucky, for only two energy cards.  This card runs into the same problem as the other two Pokemon in this line in that its HP is a bit too low, thus making me a little more weary of using the card in a deck on its own, but it would be a fine start to using this entire line if you choose to do that.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  Other than having a bit lower HP than desired, this card is pretty good, since it can fit into any deck, can do 10 damage right away for only one energy card, and can do up to 30 damage with Quick Attack for only two energy cards.  So this card is definitely worth a look when building a deck.
