Seismitoad -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Seismitoad BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Seismitoad from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Seismitoad is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Seismitoad does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Siphon Off, for one water energy card this move allows you to attach three water energy cards from your discard pile to Seismitoad.  Seismitoad's second move is called Shaky Fall and for four water energy cards this move does 90 damage, plus it confuses the defending Pokemon and makes them unable to retreat during their next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Seismitoad is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Tympole into play and then evolve it into Palpitoad before you can evolve Palpitoad into Seismitoad, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both Pokemon were average overall, both had solid moves and average HP, so they could easily be used on their own without Seismitoad.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this Seismitoad card, this card fits in well with the first two Pokemon in this line, having a solid HP, and two good moves.  What I really like about this card is that you can set this line up on the bench and then move Seismitoad into the active Pokemon spot with only one energy card on it, use Siphon Off one turn, and be set up to use Shaky Fall the next, doing massive damage.  So if I were building a water type deck that had a Pokemon that discarded a lot of water energy or if I knew that there was a good likelihood of a lot of water energy cards being in the discard pile, this is a card I would definitely use.  So if you're building a water type deck, I would consider using a 1-1-1 line of this entire line and be perfectly okay with putting this line into the active Pokemon spot in any form of evolution.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  I think there aren't any negatives about this card, it has a solid HP, and two good moves that work very well together.  The only reason I'm not giving this card any higher than an average rating is that it is slow on the attack if you can't get energy cards from your discard pile, but once you do have four energy cards on Seismitoad it can do a good amount of damage.  Altogether I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave to each of these Pokemon individually.
