Wurmple -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Wurmple Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wurmple from the Roaring Skies set.  Wurmple is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Wurmple does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Flock, for one grass energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a Wurmple card and put it onto your bench.  Wurmple's second move is called Tackle, this move does 20 damage for two colorless energy cards.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wurmple is a basic Pokemon card with two stage 1 evolution forms in Silcoon and Cascoon and two stage 2 evolution forms in Beautifly and Dustox, which I'll be reviewing the next few days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Wurmple does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card could be used on its own since it has a low retreat cost and can attack for only one or two energy cards, however, looking at Wurmple's Flock move, this move will work better if you intend to evolve Wurmple into one of its Stage 1 forms.  So basically, if you use this card on its own, it has one move that does 20 damage for two energy cards, two colorless energy cards is nice, but I still think this card is a bit too slow for my liking to use it as a starter type Pokemon in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  I do like that this card has a solid HP and two moves, but like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, if you don't use this card with one of its Stage 1 forms, this card is pretty limited on what it can do and is a little slow on the attack.  So if you're looking for a Basic Pokemon card to use in your deck, there are plenty of other Pokemon to use out there that are better than this card.
