Braviary -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Braviary BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Braviary from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Braviary is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Braviary does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Wing Attack, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage.  Braviary's second move is called Dual Cut and for four colorless energy cards, this move does 80 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Braviary is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Rufflet into play (I reviewed Rufflet from this set yesterday) and then evolve Rufflet into Braviary.  If you read yesterday's review of Rufflet, you'll know I thought that card was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card, it had a low HP and was slow on the attack, but the one move it did have, was good, it could do 30 damage for two colorless energy cards.  So knowing this about Rufflet and looking at this Braviary card, I am not a fan of this card and wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck, and would advise to avoid this line altogether when deck building.  First off, on this Braviary card, Wing Attack is exactly the same as Peck from Rufflet, and then Dual Cut, although it can do 160 damage a turn, it is also really slow to use and may end up doing zero damage a turn.  Of course to make this card faster, you could use Double Colorless energy and use a Trick Coin trainer to get a better chance at doing more damage with Dual Cut, but overall, I would recommend avoiding this card altogether.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  I do like that this card has a high HP and two moves, but neither move that this card is that great, and although one move has the potential to do major damage, it requires four energy cards to use and it is based on a coin flip.  So together with Rufflet from this set, I would give these two cards a 2 out of 5 rating, the same rating each card received individually.
