Honedge -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Honedge BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Honedge from the BREAKpoint set.  Honedge is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Honedge does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Stab.  This move requires one psychic energy card to use and puts 1 damage counter on the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Honedge is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Doublade, and a Stage 2 evolution in Aegislash, 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 Honedge does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon since it can attack for only one energy card and do damage every turn.  However, since this card's retreat cost is higher than its attack cost, you'll either want to use this card with its evolution forms or not use it at all.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  This card does have a solid HP, and one good move, but this card is very limited in what it can do, with only the one move, and with a high retreat cost, there are definitely better Basic Pokemon out there to use.
