Durant -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Durant BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Durant from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Durant is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Durant does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mountain Munch and for one grass energy card this move does 10 damage, plus it allows you to discard the top card of your opponent's deck.  Durant's second move is called Scrape Down and says that for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, that you may discard the top 4 cards of your opponent's deck if Durant has any damage counters on it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Durant is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, this card would be a very solid starter type Pokemon in a grass type deck.  You can attack for only one energy card, and both moves discard cards from your opponent's deck and if you're able to use Scrape Down a couple of times to start the game, it can greatly decrease the likelihood of your opponent using cards to draw several cards from their deck because they may then run out of cards later in the game.  So, I would try and start the game with Durant in the active Pokemon spot, use Mountain Munch the first turn, then if the defending Pokemon can do 10 damage a turn, spend the time setting up your benched Pokemon after attaching one more energy to Durant so you can use Scrape Down every turn.

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, and one that I would recommend using in a grass type deck.  There aren't any complaints from me on this card, it has an above average HP, low retreat cost, and two solid moves.
