Floette -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Floette BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Floette from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card set.  Floette is a stage 1, fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Floette does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Aromatherapy and for one fairy type energy this move heals 30 damage from each of your Pokemon.  Floette's second move is called Magical Leaf and for two fairy type energy cards this move does 20 damage plus if you get a heads it does 20 more damage and heals 20 damage from this Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Floette is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Flabebe into play (I reviewed Flabebe from this set yesterday) and then evolve Flabebe into Floette.  Floette does have a Stage 2 evolution in Florges, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Floette is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Flabebe, you'll know that I thought that card was extremely poor, not only did it have a really low HP, but it only had one move, that didn't do any damage and was still based on a coin flip.  So knowing this about Flabebe and looking at this Floette card, this card follows suit in that it has a really low HP and two not so powerful moves.  However, I really like Floette's Aromatherapy move, it can heal all of your Pokemon at one time, and if you get a heads when you use Magical Leaf, you can heal damage from Floette as well, so as long as you're not facing a Pokemon that can do 70 or more damage per turn, this cards HP is higher than it says on the card.  Since this card does have such a low HP and Flabebe isn't very good, I wouldn't use these two cards together without using Florges, but if you are using this entire line, I would definitely recommend using Floette in the active Pokemon spot to heal your team in battle.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  The main knock on this card is its HP, which stated above, is actually higher than 70 with the moves Floette has.  Overall, I like that Floette can attack quickly as well as heal your own Pokemon all at once.  But, because Flabebe from this set is so bad, I cannot give the first two Pokemon in this line higher than a 2 out of 5 rating and wouldn't recommend using them in a deck.
