Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Quilladin from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card set. Quilladin is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Quilladin does not have an Ability or Ancient Trait but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Tackle, for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 20 damage. Quilladin's second move is called Pin Missile, for three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, this move does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when flipping 4 coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Quilladin is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Chespin into play (I reviewed all three Chespin cards from this set previously) and then evolve Chespin into Quilladin. Quilladin does have a Stage 2 evolution in Chesnaught, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Quilladin is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my reviews on the three Chespin cards from this set, you'll know that I thought all three were below average, mainly because to do much damage at all you had to put three energy cards on them, one Chespin card could do 10 damage for one energy card, the other two Chespin cards could attack for one energy cards but couldn't do damage. So knowing this about the Chespin cards in this set and looking at this Quilladin, if you're building a grass type deck, there is some merit to having a 1-1 line of Chespin and Quilladin because Pin Missile has the potential to do 160 damage for three energy cards and you can have 2 tries at getting 4 heads in a row if you are using a Trick Coin trainer card with Quilladin. However, since Pin Missile is based on coin flips there is always the potential of doing zero damage every single turn, so you can't put too much faith into that move. But like I said, this line may be worth using in a grass type deck if you're looking for potential power moves.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set. This card has two decent moves, if you don't mind coin flip based moves, and an average HP, unfortunately this card does have a high retreat cost which may deter you from using this card. Together with any of the Chespin cards from this set, I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating and would recommend considering it for a deck.
