Ralts 100/162 -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ralts from the BREAKthrough set.  This is the second of two Ralts cards I've reviewed from this set, the other Ralts card in this set is a psychic type Pokemon.  Ralts is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Ralts does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mumble and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Ralts' second move is called Magical Shot and for two energy cards, one each of fairy and colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ralts is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Kirlia, and a Stage 2 evolution in Gallade and Gardevoir, you'll more than likely want to use this card with its evolution forms, which I've reviewed the past few weeks, since there was a psychic type Ralts and Kirlia is a psychic type, Gallade is a fighting type Pokemon, and there is no Gardevoir in this set, but for now, I will be acting like this card will be used on its own.  So, by itself, this card would be a solid starter type Pokemon in a fairy type deck since it has two attacks and can attack very quickly.  So if you're looking for a solid starter type Pokemon best used at the beginning of the game, I would highly recommend using this card.  However, compared to the first Ralts card from this set, this card has its limitations, this card does require a fairy type energy to attack instead of all colorless energy cards like the first Ralts card in this set, and because Ralts can't heal damage, it is best if this card is used only in the beginning of games.  All in all, both Ralts cards from this set are pretty average and it is best to use which Ralts cards works better with your deck, if you're using a fairy type deck, use this one, otherwise use the psychic type Ralts.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  I really have zero complaints about this card, it has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and two average moves.  You can't ask for a much better starter type Pokemon and a great Basic Pokemon card to lead this Pokemon family in battle.
