Chikorita -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Chikorita BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chikorita from the BREAKpoint set.  Chikorita is the first card that I'll be reviewing from the BREAKpoint set.  Chikorita is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Chikorita does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Chikorita's second move is called Blot and for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, does 10 damage, plus it heals 10 damage from Chikorita.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chikorita is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Bayleef, and a Stage 2 evolution in Meganium, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Chikorita does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon since it can attack for one energy card.  With that being said, it is a bit disappointing that even though this card has two moves, it can only do a maximum of 10 damage.  But if you're building a grass type deck, this would be a card to consider because it can attack right away, has a low retreat cost, and a solid HP.  The better path to use this card would be when using Bayleef and potentially Meganium in a deck, that way you can move this card into the active Pokemon spot for a turn or just keep it on the bench and evolve it there.

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 BREAKpoint set.  Other than only being able to do 10 damage a turn, this card is pretty average overall, average HP, low retreat cost, and two good but not great moves.  So you can definitely do much worse than using Chikorita in a deck.
