Lapras -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Lapras BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lapras from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Lapras is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 120, it has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lapras does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Errand-Running, for one water energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a trainer card and put it into your hand.  Lapras's second move is called Water Splash and for three energy cards, two water and one colorless, this move does 80 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lapras 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, most times, basic Pokemon you want to use as starter type Pokemon in a deck, but since Lapras requires three energy cards to attack and has a pretty high HP, I would suggest setting this card up on the bench, getting three energy cards on it, then moving it to the active Pokemon spot and using Water Splash every turn.  I am not a huge fan of Errand-Running, just because there are plenty of other ways to get a trainer card into your hand, I don't like using a move on this, but Water Splash is a well above average move that can be made even better if you get a heads when flipping a coin, so Trick Coin trainer may be a card you should use with this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average, yet solid, Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  My only complaint about this card is that it takes awhile for it to actually do damage when attacking, but overall, this card is one that I would definitely consider using one of in a water type deck.
