Rufflet -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Rufflet BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rufflet from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Rufflet is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Rufflet does not have an Ability and it only has one move, which is called Peck and for two colorless energy cards does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rufflet is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Braviary, 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.  So, on its own, if you're using some Double Colorless energy in your deck, this card would be a decent starter type Pokemon.  You could attach an item card to this card to increase its HP, and then be able to do 30 damage a turn for only one energy card.  If you're aren't using Double Colorless energy and can't increase Rufflet's HP, you would be better off not using this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Braviary, this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card.  I like that this card can do 30 damage for two energy, however this card has a below average HP, and unless you are using Double Colorless energy cards in your deck, this card is slow on the attack and has a low HP, which are two of the key elements in getting knocked out very quickly.  So, this card isn't terrible overall, but I think you'll be able to find better Basic Pokemon to use in your deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Rufflet from the BREAKthrough set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Rufflet's stage 1 evolution Braviary, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
