Electrike 59/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Electrike Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electrike from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two Electrike cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Electrike is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This Electrike card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Charge, for one colorless energy card, this move allows you to search your deck for a lightning type energy card and attach it to Electrike.  Electrike's second move is called Bite, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Electrike is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Manectric, which I'll be reviewing in two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet and I haven't even reviewed the second Electrike card from this set yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution and I do not know which Electrike card is better.  So, on its own, this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon in your deck, you could get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, use Charge the first turn, and the second turn for sure be able to use Bite, doing 20 damage a turn.  However, this card really isn't all that great, it just has an average HP, and an average move, so you can definitely do better than this card.  So, if you do decide to use this card in a deck, don't use more than one of them, and who knows, tomorrow's Electrike card may be better than this one.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Electrike, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card, just like Chinchou from the other day, is definitely good enough to be in a deck, since nothing is really that poor on this card, it is just limited in what it can do and the only attacking move it has requires two energy cards to use instead of one.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
