Skrelp -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Skrelp BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skrelp from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Skrelp is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Skrelp does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Hide, for one psychic energy card prevents all effects of an attack done to Skrelp during your opponent's next turn if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skrelp is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Dragalge, which I'll be reviewing in the future since it is a Dragon type Pokemon, 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, there is absolutely no reason to use this card in a deck.  I say this because the only move Skrelp has is essentially to stall while you try and find Dragalge so you can evolve it.  Other than that, you don't want to have a Pokemon with a low HP, in the active Pokemon spot and only have a 50/50 shot of having Hide actually work.  So do not use this card in a deck without having Dragalge.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Dragalge, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card, one that has a very low HP, poor move, that can't do any damage and what it can do is based off a coin flip, and just a card that you can't use late in games.  So again, definitely do not use this card on its own, look for something else to use.
