Chespin 9/162 -- 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 third and final Chespin card that 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 Tree Climb, for one grass energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a grass energy card and put it into your hand.  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.  So, on its own, I cannot recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason being this card can't do any damage to the defending Pokemon unless you have three energy cards on it, which is not a good thing to do on a card that only has 60 HP.  Chespin's Tree Climb move is decent, but I would much rather use an Ability to do this same thing or a trainer card.  Now that I've reviewed all three Chespin cards from this set, I can definitely say they are all underwhelming, all of them have the move Seed Bomb, and all three have 60 HP and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  If you're looking to use Chespin on its own, use yesterday's card that can actually do damage for one energy card, if you know you're going to use Chespin's evolution forms, I would still recommend either using that card, the other two Chespin cards can either heal itself or move a grass energy card to your hand.

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.  This card is pretty similar to the other two Chespin cards from this set, nothing too underwhelming, but it still can't do any damage unless you get three energy cards on it, and even then, 30 damage for three energy cards is very poor.  So if you're looking to use Quilladin and Chesnaught in a deck, I would definitely recommend setting the line up on the bench, because none of the Chespin cards are very good.
