Horsea -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Horsea Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Horsea from the Primal Clash set.  Horsea is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Horsea does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Bubble, for one water energy card this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Horsea is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Seadra and a stage 2 evolution in Kingdra, which I'll be reviewing in the future, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck since it does not have a move that for sure does damage, and the only move that it does have is a coin flip based move, meaning you only have a 50/50 shot of it working.  So unless you really love Horsea and want it in your deck, do not use this card in your deck.  If you choose to use this card in your deck, use this card early in the game, basically use it to set up your benched Pokemon, put it into the active Pokemon spot to start, put an energy card on it, then try and make it so your opponent cannot attack each and every turn.  Then, when one of your benched Pokemon is set up, retreat Horsea to your bench and leave it there the remainder of the game.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, without considering Seadra or Kingdra, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card does have an average HP and low retreat cost, but this card just cannot be used on its own since it only has one move, but this one move not only doesn't do damage but it may not even work most of the time since it is a coin flip based move, so if you're building a water type deck, please look elsewhere for Basic Pokemon to use.
