Slowpoke -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Slowpoke BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Slowpoke from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Slowpoke is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Slowpoke does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Headbutt and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Slowpoke's second move is called Tail Lure and for two colorless energy cards this move allows you to search your deck for a Pokemon and put it into your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Slowpoke is a basic Pokemon card with two Stage 1 Pokemon in Slowbro and Slowking, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with one or both of those Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution forms.  So, on its own, this card has some positives on it like its above average HP and the fact it has two moves, plus it only requires colorless energy, so potentially this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon in any type deck.  You could use Headbutt the first turn, then if you have a lot of Stage 1 and Stage 2 Pokemon in your deck, or several EX, you could use Tail Lure the next turn to get the Pokemon you need from your deck to your hand.  I personally would rather use a Pokemon that can do more than 10 damage a turn and use a Trainer card to replace Tail Lure.  But, I would definitely consider using this card when building a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Slowpoke or Slowking, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Like I pointed out above, this card has a strong HP, and two moves, which make it a somewhat ideal starter type Pokemon, which made me give this card an average rating overall.
