Vanillite -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Vanillite BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vanillite from the BREAKthrough set.  Vanillite is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Vanillite does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Stiffen, for one water energy card this move reduces any damage done to Vanillite during your opponent's next turn by 20.  Vanillite's second move is called Icy Snow, 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 Vanillite is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Vanillish, and a Stage 2 evolution in Vanilluxe, which I'll be reviewing the next few days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Vanillite does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, I probably wouldn't use this card in a deck mainly because it has a lower HP than I'd like.  Adding to the low HP is the fact it requires two energy cards to do any damage, however if you're using this card with Vanillish, it would be okay to put this card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game because you can use Stiffen the first turn and prevent your opponent from doing any damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  Like I said above, if this card would have had an HP of 60, I would have gave it an average rating, but because this card is slow on the attack and has a low HP, that combo makes this card below average.  So if you're building a water type deck, this card should be considered but there is no reason to for sure use it.
