Beautifly -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Beautifly Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Beautifly from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Beautifly is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a free retreat cost.  Beautifly's Ability is called Miraculous Scales, this prevents all attacks done to Beautifly by EX Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Beautifly has one move called Whirlwind, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one grass, and does 80 damage, plus you may have your opponent switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Beautifly is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Wurmple into play and then evolve it into Silcoon before you can evolve Silcoon into Beautifly, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average, I gave Wurmple a 2 out of 5 rating because the main move it had for attacking, although a decent move, required two energy cards to use, and I gave Silcoon as 1 out of 5 rating because it had a low HP, high retreat cost, and one pretty under-powered move for a Stage 1 card.  So knowing this about the first two forms in this Pokemon line and looking at this Beautifly card, this card would be mainly used as a way to combat EX heavy decks.  I would include a 1-1-1 line of Wurmple, Silcoon, and Beautifly in a deck and just leave this line on the bench until your opponent plays an EX card, then move Beautifly to the active Pokemon spot doing 80 damage a turn and retreat it for free once you knock it out.  Not only does this card prevent EX cards from attacking, it might prevent your opponent from even setting up an EX card on the bench.  I also like how Whirlwind increases the chances of your opponent having an EX card in the active Pokemon spot, for example if they just have one card on their bench, an EX card, you could then have them move it to the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  I really like this card, the reason I am holding back giving it a perfect rating is because Beautifly loses a lot of its effectiveness if your opponent isn't using an EX card, but this card still has a free retreat cost and an above average damage move, so it is definitely worthy of using.  However, paired together with Wurmple and Silcoon from this set, I can't give this line any higher than a 3 out of 5 rating.
