Numel -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Numel BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Numel from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Numel is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Numel does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Numel's second move is called Combustion and for three energy cards, two fire and one colorless, this move does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Numel is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Camerupt, 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, even though this card has a high HP and two moves, plus can attack for only one energy card, I would not recommend using this card in a deck unless you have plenty of Switch trainer cards.  Because you don't want to have to attach three energy cards to Numel just to retreat it and have to discard those cards.  Ideally you would get this card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game and use Tackle every turn until you get your benched Pokemon set up, then you can use the Switch trainer and put one of those set up Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Camerupt, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  The only thing bringing this card down is its high retreat cost, other than that, this card is a fine starter type Pokemon in a deck, if only Combustion was a bit quicker and did average damage.  So while there are much better Pokemon out there to use than Numel in a deck, this card wouldn't be the worst one to use in a fire type deck.
