Oddish -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Oddish Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Oddish from the Ancient Origins set.  Oddish is the first card that I've reviewed from the Ancient Origins set.  Oddish is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Oddish does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Trip Over, for one grass energy card this move does 10 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Oddish is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Gloom, and two Stage 2 evolution forms in Vileplume and Bellossom, 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 Oddish does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck mainly because this card has a below average HP.  The one move it does have can be used early on in games and can do above average damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  So I cannot recommend using this card on its own, but it should be a good start to the rest of this line and if forced to put this card into the active Pokemon spot it should be able to hold its own for one turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  Besides having a below average HP, this card is pretty decent, having one quick move that can do above average damage and a low retreat cost.  So like I said in the strategy section, this card shouldn't be used on its own, but it is a decent start to the rest of this Pokemon family in the Ancient Origins set.
