Electrike -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Electrike Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electrike from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card 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. Manectric does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Bite, for one colorless energy card this move requires one colorless energy card to use and does 10 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 tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason I say this is this card is just too limited in that it can only do 10 damage maximum.  If you were using this card with Manectric it would work perfectly, but you want a starter type Pokemon like Eletrike to do more than 10 damage a turn, especially if you have to use this card later in the game.  Other than the low damage it does when attacking, everything else on this card is average, so if you're desperately in need of a Pokemon to use in a lightning type deck, there would be much worse ones out there to use than Electrike.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Manectric, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card is pretty average overall, HP, retreat cost, energy card cost for attacking, however because this card is quite limited in what it can do only having one move and that move being able to do 10 damage, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card.
