Blitzle -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Blitzle BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Blitzle from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Blitzle is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Blitzle does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Reckless Charge which does 20 damage for one colorless energy card, however this move also does 10 damage to Blitzle.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Blitzle is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Zebstrika, 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, this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon, since it can attack for one energy card, regardless of type, however, you just need to be careful and not knock yourself out since Reckless Charge is indeed reckless and does damage to Blitzle.  Doing 20 damage a turn for one energy card is an above average move, and probably would make a great step for this full line if used with Zebstrika.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Zebstrika, this is an average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said above, this card is solid overall, with a low retreat cost, average HP, and a good move, the only downside to this card is that it does damage to itself, but overall it is definitely worth consideration in a lightning type deck.
