Doduo 115/162 -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Doduo BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Doduo from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Doduo cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Doduo is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is Simultaneous Peck, for one colorless energy card this move does 30 damage if you get two heads when you flip two coins, otherwise the move does nothing.  Doduo's second move is called Doduo Delivery and for two colorless energy cards this move allows you to draw 2 cards.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Doduo is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Dodrio, which I'll be reviewing in two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, and haven't reviewed the other Doduo card from this set, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution and do not know which Doduo card is better.  So, on its own, I cannot come up with a reason to use this card in a deck.  Yes, this card can be used in any type deck, and yes it has the potential to do 30 damage right away to start the game, but since this card can only do damage if you get two heads in a row, which is a 25% chance of happening, I would not use this card in a deck.  Plus, Doduo's second move, Doduo Delivery can easily be replaced by a trainer card.  So unless you're using Dodrio in this deck, do not use this card at all, it just isn't worth the risk.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Dodrio, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I like that this card has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and two moves, but neither move on this card is that great, meaning although this card has plenty of options in battle, it just isn't that great, and shouldn't be used in a deck on its own.

There are actually 17 colourless type pokémon in 19 different colourless type cards. But you didn't asked for how many CARDS nor by how many DIFFERENT pokémon so, not sure what you're asking for and all together makes a "19 colourless type pokémon in the BTr set".

Also, is someone getting any prize since the time he's not saying who won? Just curiosity.
