Noibat 132/162 -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Noibat BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Noibat from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of the two Noibat cards that I've reviewed from this set.  This Noibat 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 Noibat card does not have Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mysterious Beam and for one colorless energy card you can discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Noibat's second move is called Gust and for two colorless energy cards, it does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Noibat is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Noivern, which I've reviewed in the past, and given a 3 out of 5 rating, stating that although it can do major damage every turn, it requires three distinct energy types to attack plus has to discard an energy when attacking, so unless building a psychic and darkness type deck, the card isn't worth using, I will first review this card on its own, and then talk about using it with Noivern, then compare the two Noibat cards from this set, since I reviewed the first one yesterday.  So looking at this card on its own, I like the fact it has a solid HP and two moves, Gust does do a decent amount of damage and if you're using Double Colorless energy cards in your deck, you can essentially do 20 damage a turn for one energy card.  So this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon since it could prevent your opponent from attacking the first turn with Mysterious Beam, if that Pokemon requires two energy cards to attack, and then after that do 20 damage a turn.  I would rather use yesterday's card with Noivern since it can attack quicker and if you know you're going to evolve it, the lower HP wouldn't matter.  Compared to yesterday's card, this card has a higher HP and one more move.  If there is a way to increase the HP on these cards, I would definitely use yesterday's Noibat card because it can attack immediately, but on its own, I like this card a tiny bit better.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  Just looking at this card on its own, I would give this card a slightly below average rating, the main reason for this is even though this card has two moves, the first move it has is based off a coin flip, meaning it may do nothing at all, and as a starter type Pokemon you want to attack right away, so this card isn't that great.  Overall, I cannot highly recommend either Noibat card from this set.
