Pansage -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Pansage BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pansage from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Pansage 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. Pansage does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Fury Swipes, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 3 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pansage is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Simisage, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, 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 would not recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason being the only move that this card has is based off of coin flips, and especially late in games, you don't want to put a Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot and not have it do any damage at all.  You could always attach a Trick Coin trainer to Pansage but I would much rather use a Basic Pokemon that can do 20 damage every turn for one energy card than one that potentially could do 30 damage a turn for the same energy cost.  So unless you just really like Pansage, I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck without Simisage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Simisage, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card.  I like that this card has a solid HP and a low retreat cost, but having only one move which is based off of coin flips just isn't something that I want in a deck, making this card below average overall.
