Flabebe -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Flabebe BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Flabebe from the BREAKthrough set.  Flabebe is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an HP of 30.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Flabebe does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The one move it has is called Wish, for one fairy type energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a card and put it into your hand, if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Flabebe is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Floette, and a Stage 2 evolution in Florges, 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 Flabebe does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, there is absolutely no reason to use this card in a deck.  Starting with the fact that this card has an extremely low HP, comparable to Magikarp, then moving on to the fact that this card doesn't do any damage when attacking, and the only move that it does have is based off of a coin flip.  So the only reason to include this card in a deck is to keep it on the bench while waiting to evolve it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is one of the poorest Basic Pokemon cards I've reviewed in some time.  Read the strategy section of this post for my analysis of how bad this card is, but do not use this card by itself in any deck out there, if you do, you will lose.
