Elgyem -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Elgyem BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Elgyem from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Elgyem is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Elgyem does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Psych Up that does 10 damage for one psychic energy card, however during Elgyem's next turn, Psych Up does 20 more damage, for a total of 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Elgyem is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Beheeyem, 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, this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon in a deck if you use it in the active Pokemon spot to start the game and then proceed to use Psych Up two turns in a row, doing 40 damage total in two turns.  However, this card is very limited in what it can do, with only the one move, and this card is not that usable later in games since it has a low HP.  So if you need one more Basic Pokemon card to use in a psychic type deck, this card is worth a look, but for the most part, I would probably pass on using this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Beheeyem, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said above, at the very beginning of a game this card is decent, but as the game proceeds, this card gets weaker and weaker and is one that shouldn't be used in a deck.  So again, this card is worth considering, but there are plenty of psychic type Pokemon out there better than this one.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Elgyem evolves to Beheeyem at 42. A beautiful number, as it represents life, the universe, everything.
