Sigilyph -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Sigilyph BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sigilyph from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Sigilyph is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 90, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sigilyph does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Reflective Shield, for one colorless energy card this move makes it so that if Sigilyph is damaged by an attack during your opponent's next turn, put 5 damage counters on that attacking Pokemon.  Sigilyph's second move is called Psy Report and for two psychic energy cards this move does 30 damage plus makes your opponent reveal their hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sigilyph is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, if you're building a psychic type deck, or just looking for a solid Basic Pokemon card, I would highly recommend using this Sigilyph card.  You can use it as a starter type Pokemon, and just by using one energy card, knock out most Basic Pokemon that have evolution forms in two turns or less.  Plus, you can get an idea of what your opponent's strategy is by using Psy Report.  So in short, use this card as a starter type Pokemon in a deck if you want to get to a quick start, by not only doing damage when attacking, but getting an idea of what your opponent's strategy is.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very good Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  To me, there really aren't any disadvantages to this card, it has a high HP, low retreat cost, and two good moves.  Like I have said a couple of times already, this card is a quick attacker, can do major damage, and allows you to look at all of your opponent's cards, so definitely considering using this card in a deck.
