Chespin 7/162 -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Chespin BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chespin from the BREAKthrough set.  This is the first of three Chespin cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Chespin 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.  This Chespin card does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Nosh, for one colorless energy card this move heals 20 damage from Chespin.  Chespin's second move is called Seed Bomb, for three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chespin is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Quilladin, and a Stage 2 evolution in Chesnaught, 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 Chespin does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  In two days, after I have reviewed all three Chespin cards from this set I will be comparing all of them.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using this card in your deck, the main reason I say this is because it can't attack quickly, and if you aren't going to evolve it, it does not make sense to put three energy cards on it and use Seed Bomb.  So I can't recommend using this card in a 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 BREAKthrough set.  I think this card would be alright to use if using with Quilladin but since it isn't, this card is too slow to attack and just isn't that great, even though it does have two moves and an average HP.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Chespin from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second of three Chespin cards, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

False. EX cards can be considered as Basic as well, say Mewtwo EX?
