Remoraid 32/162 -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Remoraid BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Remoraid from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of the two Remoraid cards from this set that I've reviewed.  Remoraid is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Ion Pool, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to discard any Stadium card in play.  Remoraid's second move is called Water Gun, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Remoraid is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Octillery, 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 will consider Remoraid by itself, but I will compare both Remoraid cards later in this post.  This Remoraid card is very similar to yesterday's card, the only difference being its first move which on this card discards a Stadium card whereas yesterday's card retreats for free with its move requiring one energy card.  Just like yesterday, this card doesn't warrant use on its own considering it requires two energy cards to attack, but if I had to use one of the two Remoraid cards in a deck, I would use this one since Ion Pool actually affects the defending Pokemon whereas yesterday's move doesn't do anything to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Octillery, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card is average overall having a solid HP, low retreat cost, and one good move, but this card is slow overall and can't do much with its first move.  So considering both Remoraid cards from this set it is basically a toss up on which one to use, neither are great, it just depends on which first move you prefer most.

False. Remoraid is not the only non-EX Basic Pokemon that has two different cards in the BREAKthrough expansion. A Pokemon like that is Magnemite.
