Trevenant -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Trevenant BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Trevenant from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Trevenant is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Trevenant's Ability is called Nervous Seed and says that as long as Trevenant is your active Pokemon, all of your opponent's Pokemon's attacks cost one colorless energy card more.  Besides the Ability, Trevenant just has one move called Energy Press, for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, this move does 70 damage plus 10 more damage for each energy attached to your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Trevenant is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Phantump into play (I reviewed Phantump from this set yesterday) and then evolve Phantump into Trevenant.  If you read yesterday's review of Phantump, you'll know that I thought that it was one of the worst cards I've ever reviewed on my blog since it could not be used on its own, since the only move it had was to search your deck for Trevenant and put it onto the Phantump card.  So if used with Trevenant the card is much better, but of course you'll want to evolve Phantump into Trevenant as quickly as possible regardless if its in the active Pokemon spot or on the bench.  So once you have Trevenant in play, make sure it has three energy cards on it, then move it to the active Pokemon spot and start using Energy Press, I like how this move does well above average damage by itself, but incorporate its Ability, and it can do that much more damage since your opponent will have to attach another energy card to their Pokemon to attack, making Energy Press do 10 more damage every turn.  You could easily do over 100 damage with this move.  So if you're building a psychic type deck, I would highly recommend using at least a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family for some power.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very good Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Other than having a higher retreat cost, there are no downsides to this card, it has a well above average HP, and an Ability and move that work very well together.  This card can do major damage every turn, and can make your opponent unable to attack when using Trevenant's Ability.  Like I said, Phantump from this set is worthless on its own, but together with Trevenant I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating.
