Meloetta -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Meloetta BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Meloetta from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Meloetta is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 90, it has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Meloetta does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Accelerating Spin, for one colorless energy card, this move allows you to attach two fighting type energy cards from your discard pile to Meloetta, then switch Meloetta with one of your benched Pokemon.  Meloetta's second move is called Prima Rondo, for three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, this move does 60 damage plus 50 more damage if this card has an psychic energy attached to it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Meloetta is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, the only time when you would want to use this card in a deck is if you're building a dual type deck of psychic and fighting, that way, you can do 110 damage per turn with Meloetta for three energy cards.  So you'll want to keep this card on the bench until you get three energy cards on it, or move it into the active Pokemon spot later in the game, use Accelerating Spin one turn, getting two more energy cards on it, then wait until even later in the game to use it.  So like I said, if you're building a psychic and fighting type deck and need some power, this is definitely a card I would consider, especially if you attach a Fighting Fury Belt trainer card to this card, its HP will increase by 40 and its attack by 10 since it is a Basic Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card that becomes well above average if used in a psychic and fighting type deck.  You can't go wrong doing 110 damage per turn for three energy cards, but because this card is a Basic Pokemon, it is slow on the attack, making this card average overall, but still a solid card to use in a deck.
