Zorua 90/162 -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Zorua BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zorua from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two consecutive Zorua cards that I've reviewed from this set.  Zorua is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This card, just like yesterday's card, does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Whiny Voice, and for one darkness energy card this move allows you to choose a random card from your opponent's hand and have them shuffle it back into their deck.  Zorua's second move is called Dark Edge, for two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, this move does 30 damage, however it discards an energy card attached to Zorua.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zorua is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Zoroark, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution but I will be comparing Zorua cards later in this post.  So, on its own, even though this card has two moves, and an average HP, I would not recommend using this card in the active Pokemon spot because it requires a limitless amount of energy cards when using Dark Edge since it always requires another energy card because you have to discard one every time you use it, and Whiny Voice, doesn't do any damage or really anything to the defending Pokemon, it can only move a card back into your opponent's hand, and they can easily find that card again with a trainer.  So I cannot recommend using this card in a deck, and if I was forced to choose between today's Zorua card and yesterday's Zorua card, yesterday's card is much better, both cards have Dark Edge, but yesterday's card can confuse the defending Pokemon for one energy card, which makes it better in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Zoroark, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I gave yesterday's Zorua card a 2 as well, but this card is a little worse than that one, not being able to do much for one energy card.  Regardless, neither Zorua card from this set should be used without using Zoroark in a deck.
