Misdreavus -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Misdreavus BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Misdreavus from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Misdreavus is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Misdreavus does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Haunt, for one psychic energy card this move puts two damage counters on your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Misdreavus is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Mismagius, 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 easily be used as a starter type Pokemon in a psychic type deck since it can attack for only one energy.  So you could put up to four of these in a deck and hope to start the game with this Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot, then do 20 damage a turn every turn until you either evolve Misdreavus or retreat it for a stronger Pokemon.  But you can't go wrong being able to do 20 damage a turn for only one energy card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Mismagius, this is a pretty average Basic Pokemon card.  This card has an average HP, low retreat cost, and one good move, making it a perfectly fine starter type Pokemon in a deck.  So like I said above, if you're building a psychic type deck, definitely give this card a look.

Misdreavus does not rely on a particular level to evolve into Mismagius. Rather, it evolves when exposed to a Dusk Stone.

Misdreavus does not evolve into Mismagius by leveling. Instead Misdreavus evolves into Mismagius when being exposed to a Dusk Stone.
