Florges BREAK -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Florges BREAK BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Florges BREAK from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  The way a BREAK card works is that you place it on top of the Pokemon with the exact name, so this card would be placed on top of Florges, so basically this card is a Stage 3 card.  It is placed horizontally on the card it evolves from and can use that Pokemon's Abilities and Attacks as well as what is on the BREAK card.  Florges BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 3), fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Florges you're evolving it from.  Florges does not have a move but it does have an Ability called Floral Breeze that says you may heal 30 damage and all special conditions from your active Pokemon in between each turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Florges BREAK is a stage 3 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Flabebe into play and then evolve it into Floette, and then into Florges before you can evolve Florges into the BREAK version, all three of those Pokemon have cards in this set and I've reviewed all of those cards in the past several days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought Flabebe was really poor having a low HP, and poor move, Floette wasn't much better since it had a low HP but it could heal damage from itself and your bench, but I did think Florges was very good, and a must in a fairy type deck since even on the bench it could make your entire fairy deck faster on the attack.  So knowing this about the first 3 Pokemon in this line and looking at this Florges BREAK card, since this card doesn't have an attack, you'll have to stick with Florges' attack which is pretty good, being able to do 70 damage a turn for three energy cards plus confuse the defending Pokemon.  I do like Florges BREAK's Ability quite well, but because this card is such a high stage of evolution, you won't be able to get this card into the active Pokemon spot early, so this card's Ability won't be as great later in games since most Pokemon can one hit KO or do a lot more than 30 damage a turn, which is the amount Floral Breeze can reduce from your active Pokemon.  So I would guess, if you are already using the line of Flabebe, Floette, and Florges in a fairy type deck, it would be worth throwing one of these BREAK cards in, I just wish this card wasn't so slow to set up and this line wouldn't take up so many spots in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a slightly above average BREAK Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  If this card wasn't so slow to set up I would give it a stronger 4 out of 5 rating and more highly recommend this card.  But I do like this card's Ability and the fact it gives Florges a higher HP.  So like I said above, if you are already playing this entire line, there is no reason at all not to use this Florges BREAK card, utilizing both Abilities from the bench.  Overall, I would give this entire line a 4 out of 5 rating, if you're building a fairy type deck, definitely consider using this line.
