Eevee -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Eevee Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Eevee from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Eevee is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Eevee does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Eevee's second move is called Lunge, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use and does 30 damage, however you must flip a coin when using this move and if you get a tails the move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Eevee is a basic Pokemon card with three Stage 1 evolution forms in this set, Vaporeon, Flareon, and Jolteon, you'll definitely want to use this card in a deck to get to those cards, all of the Eevee evolution cards in this deck I gave above average ratings and all three have amazing abilities on them, and should be a staple in decks in the metagame.  So knowing how good the evolution forms of Eevee are, I will now specifically look at Eevee.  So, after looking at Eevee in the overview section of this post, it is a solid start to this Pokemon family, you can put it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game since it can attack for one energy card and even do up to 30 damage a turn if you can't evolve it after your first turn.  But, if you have Eevee in your deck, it is probably because you want to evolve it to use one of its evolution forms' Ability, thus keeping it on the bench the whole time.  So overall, this card is good if it has to be put into the active Pokemon spot, but you'll probably never have to do that.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Jolteon, Vaporeon, or Flareon, this is an average Basic Pokemon card that is a solid first Pokemon in a very popular Pokemon line.  This card is just solid overall and won't make you immediately lose the game if you're forced to play it in the active Pokemon spot.

The Eeveelution which is your 2nd favourite is Umbreon. This is shown in 'PrimetimePokemon's Top 10 Favourite Plasma Freeze Pokemon Cards' (June 1, 2013), between the 3:11-3:16 mark. You said, "Probably my second favourite behind Jolteon for Eevee evolutions."

I've binged ~300 of your videos in the last week.

I've gotten that Umbreon is your second favourite, Espeon is your third favourite. (Countless times, I'm pretty much waiting for you to say it every time you pull one of these pokemon now)

I'm fairly sure Jolteon may be your favourite, There was one pull where you said that you really liked that eevee evolution, Though Glaceon is another one I'm thinking might be the case.

You've also got a heap of other ticks, Water types are your favourite starters except for charizard, Feraligator is your second favourite starter, you like second gen pokemon because you played 1k+ hours, You really like the porygon family of pokemon, you haven't collected much of anything between the neo sets and the D&P sets, 'two rares in a pack is always nice'.

I feel that I can predict what you're going to say so much of the time!
