Florges -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Florges BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Florges from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Florges is a stage 2, fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Florges's Ability is called Calming Aroma and says that each of your Pokemon's attacks cost one less fairy type energy card.  Besides the Ability, Florges just has one move called Wonder Shine, that for three fairy type energy cards, does 70 damage, plus it confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Florges is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Flabebe into play and then evolve it into Floette before you can evolve Floette into Florges, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought Flabebe was an extremely poor Basic Pokemon card, one that had a low HP and a poor move and one that should not be used on its own or in the active Pokemon spot ever, I thought Floette was better, being average overall, it too had a low HP, but both of its moves healed damage from it.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this Florges card, if you have the patience and room in your deck to keep Florges on the bench the entire game, that is the preferred strategy.  That way, if you're using a heavy fairy type deck, all of your Pokemon can attack for one less energy card.  Outside of that, I do like Florges' move quite well, the only downside being that Florges is a Stage 2 Pokemon with a very low HP.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  Other than having a low HP, this card is very good.  It has a great Ability that will greatly affect a fairy type deck, and the one move it has not only does above average damage but also inflicts a special condition.  So overall, this is an average line to put into a deck, getting a 3 out of 5 rating from me, but if you're using a mostly fairy type deck, definitely consider using this line.

False. In previous expansions, the highest rarity of any Florges card was not Rare Holo; it was Rare Ultra. Florges EX Full Art appeared in XY Phantom Forces (116/119).
