Bellossom -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Bellossom Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bellossom from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Bellossom is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Bellossom does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Windmill and for one grass energy card this move does 20 damage, however you must switch Bellossom with one of your benched Pokemon.  Bellossom's second move is called Flower Tornado, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of grass and colorless, and does 60 damage, plus it allows you to move as many grass energy cards attached to your Pokemon from one to your others in any way that you like.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bellossom is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Oddish into play and then evolve it into Gloom before you can evolve Gloom into Bellossom, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last few days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average, giving both cards 2 out of 5 ratings, I liked the moves on both of those cards however the HP on both were lower than average and thus making them not easily usable in a deck.  So knowing this about the first two evolution forms in this line and looking at Bellossom, this card definitely has a low HP which isn't great, but to make up for this this card has a low retreat cost and two moves that both require little energy to use.  The reason you would use this card in a deck would be for Flower Tornado, unfortunately this isn't an Ability so you can't use it from your bench, but if you want you could use a 1-1-1 line of this Pokemon family and once you get your Pokemon set up on your bench, you could then easily power an EX card or something that requires three or four or more energy cards in one turn.  So to repeat, only use this card in a mainly grass type deck, and use this card for its Flower Tornado move, besides having a nice side effect of moving energy around, it can do a fair amount of damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  Just like Vileplume yesterday, this card has a little lower HP but some decent moves.  You could use either Vileplume or Bellossom in a deck since they are both average.  Together with the first two Pokemon in this line, Oddish and Gloom, I would give this Pokemon family a 2 out of 5 rating.

That is a trick question. It doesnt evolve thanks to a specific lvl but rather by the use of two types of stone: Leaf or Sun stone. Since the question was related towards Bellosom, the only way Gloob can evolve into the mentioned pokemon is by use of the sun stone

Gloom does not evolve into Bellossom by leveling. Instead Gloom evolves into Bellossom when being exposed to a Sun Stone.

Gloom does not depend on a certain Level to evolve into Bellossom. Gloom evolves into Bellossom when exposed to a Sun Stone.

I'm going to be particular with this answer and say:
Gloom can only evolve into Bellossom at ANY level provided you use a Sun Stone

Gloom doesn't evolve into Bellossom by level. It evolves with the use of a Sun Stone in any level.

You cannot turn Gloom into Bellossom through leveling, a sun stone is needed, therefore you can acquire a bellossom at level 21~100 with the help of the sun stone
