Luxio -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Luxio BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Luxio from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card set.  Luxio is a stage 1, lightning type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Luxio does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bite and does 20 damage for one colorless energy card.  Luxio's second move is called Thunder Fang and for two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, does 30 damage, plus paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Luxio is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Shinx into play (I reviewed Shinx from this set yesterday) and then evolve Shinx into Luxio.  Luxio does have a Stage 2 evolution in Luxray, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Luxio is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Shinx, you'll know that I thought that card was average overall and could be used on its own, since it had a solid HP, low retreat cost, and two moves that both only required one energy card to use.  So knowing this about Shinx and looking at this Luxio card, if you're already playing one Shinx card in your deck, I would have no problem recommending using 1 Luxio card as well.  I say this because, when you evolve Shinx you get a higher HP, and can do 10 more damage for the same amount of energy, or 20 more damage plus inflict a special condition for one more energy card.  So while neither Shinx or Luxio are anything too great, if you're building a lightning type deck and need some solid cards to play, I would definitely consider this line.  Eventually getting two energy cards on Luxio and using Thunder Fang every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set, with the only negative on this card being its lower HP.  However, I do like that Luxio has a low retreat cost, and two good moves, both requiring little energy.  Together with Shinx from this set, I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating.
