Cacnea -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Cacnea BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cacnea from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Cacnea is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Cacnea does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Swagger, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage plus discards an energy attached to the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cacnea is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Cacturne, which I'll be reviewing in a few weeks since it is a darkness type Pokemon card, 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 more than likely wouldn't use this card in a deck just because it is so limited having only one move and not being able to do more than 10 damage per turn.  However, if you needed to use this Cacnea card so you could use Cacturne in your deck, I have no problem with this card at all, since it has an average HP, low retreat cost, and one quick move that does a fair amount of damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Cacturne, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  There is nothing that I severely dislike about this card, like I stated in the strategy section, the only knock on this card is that if you're using it on its own, you won't have much of a chance with it later in games since it can only do 10 damage a turn.
