Pansear -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Pansear BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pansear from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Pansear is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Pansear does not have an Ancient Trait or Ability 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 Pansear is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Simisear, 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 cannot recommend using this card in a deck, I say this because with Pansear only having one move, you want to be able to do damage every single turn, and since Fury Swipes is based off of coin flips, you may end up doing zero damage every single turn.  So on its own I would not recommend using Pansear in a deck, however if you know you're going to evolve it into Simisear quite quickly, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to have to use Fury Swipes one turn and then evolve it the next.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Simisear, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  The main reason for this rating is because of its one move depending on coin flips, otherwise this card has a low retreat cost, average HP, and the potential to do a fair amount of damage every turn.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Pansear from the BREAKthrough set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Pansear's stage 1 evolution Simisear, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Pansear doesn't evolve by level, you need to give it a fire stone for it to evolve, my youtube channel is TheAmazingGamer https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjCXaOCm-rrF1g_v6J5TDSQ

Pansear evolves at any level provided a fire stone is used.

Pansear does not evolve into Simisear by leveling, instead Pansear evoles into Simisear after being exposed to a Fire Stone.

No level required. It evolves using a Fire stone.
