Ralts -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Ralts Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ralts from the Ancient Origins set.  Ralts is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Ralts does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mumble, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Ralts' second move is called Magical Shot, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of colorless and fairy, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ralts is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Kirlia, and a Stage 2 evolution in Gardevoir, 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 Ralts does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card could definitely be used as a starter type Pokemon in a fairy type deck, it is not flashy by any means, but it should give you some time at the beginning of the game to get your benched Pokemon set up and do some damage to the defending Pokemon.  I would put at least one of these cards in a fairy type deck and try my hardest to get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, then depending on how fast you think you can get your benched Pokemon set up, either put one or two energy cards on Ralts.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very solid, average Basic Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  There is nothing that I dislike about this card.  It has an average HP, low retreat cost, and two solid moves, you really can't go wrong with using this card as a starter type Pokemon card in a fairy type deck.

I believe it was Ancient Origins.

Speaking of that, I opened 4 packs yesterday and it included the 3 last cards you reviewed(Ralts, Registeel and Metagross), I don't think it was a full art Metagross though.
