Froakie -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Froakie BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Froakie from the BREAKpoint set.  Froakie is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Froakie does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Bubble, for one water energy card this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon when you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Froakie is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Frogadier, and a Stage 2 evolution in Greninja, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Froakie does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, the strategy is very simple, do not use this card.  I say this because Froakie doesn't have a move that does any damage, and the one move that it does have, only works approximately 50% of the time, and when it does work it only paralyzes the defending Pokemon.  So even if you use this card with its evolution forms, I would recommend keeping this card on the bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Besides having a solid HP, and low retreat cost, this card is just too limited in what it can do, only having one move, and the one move it has not only unable to do damage, but is based off of a coin flip as well.  So definitely look elsewhere when building a water type deck.

Hey PTP, I hope you don't mind an actual comment here instead of an entry for the card code. I watched your deck review for wave-breaker and you went through froakie's line. I think Greninja is very worth it to keep that froakie benched as long as possible. 1/5 for froakie for sure.
