Beldum -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Beldum Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Beldum from the Ancient Origins set.  Beldum is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Beldum does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Ram, for one metal energy card this move does 10 damage.  Beldum's second move is called Spinning Attack, for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Beldum is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Metang, and a Stage 2 evolution in Metagross and there are two Metagross cards in this set, 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 Beldum does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card could have been used as a starter type Pokemon in your deck mainly because it could attack for one energy card and if need be could do up to 30 damage a turn later on, but because this card has a higher retreat cost, two colorless energy cards, I would not recommend using this card on its own.  So unless you're using this Beldum card as a stepping stone to Metang and Metagross, don't use this card in your deck.

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.  This card does have a few positives on it, like its average HP and the fact it has two moves.  However, this card is limited in that you're not going to want to put three energy cards on a card that has 60 HP, and this card requires more energy cards to retreat than to attack with its first move.  So again, this isn't a card I would recommend using on its own.

The first English set to include a Beldum card was EX Hidden Legends. It was also the only English set to include both Psychic and Metal type Beldum cards.
