Electabuzz -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Electabuzz BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electabuzz from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Electabuzz is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Electabuzz does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Knuckle Punch and for two colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Electabuzz is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Electivire, 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, if you plan on using 4 Double Colorless energy cards in your lightning type deck, this card is definitely worth a look, since you could essentially do 20 damage a turn with a starter type Pokemon with Electabuzz, plus add in the fact it has an above average HP, and this card is definitely a contender for a good starter type Pokemon.  However, if you are not using Double Colorless energy in your deck, this card is definitely not better than average, especially since the two energy cards you attach to Electabuzz to attack must be discarded when retreated.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Electivire, this is an average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said above, this card is good with Double colorless energy, other than that it is very very average, other than having a higher HP.  So if you're building a lighting type deck, this card is definitely worth a look.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Electabuzz from the BREAKpoint set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Electabuzz's stage 1 evolution Electivire, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
