Trubbish -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Trubbish BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Trubbish from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Trubbish is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Trubbish does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Acid Spray and for one psychic energy card this move does 10 damage and allows you to discard an energy attached to the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Trubbish is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Garbodor, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, 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, this would be an okay card to use in a deck, since it can attack for one energy card, and can remove an energy from your opponent's active Pokemon.  But looking ahead, which I know I said I wouldn't, Garbodor is a very powerful card because of its Ability, so ideally, you would want to keep Trubbish on the bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Garbodor, this is an average Basic Pokemon card, with the only downfall being that its retreat cost is higher than its move.  But other than that, this card has an above average HP, and a good move, that does average damage every time, but could remove an energy from your opponent's active Pokemon.  So like I said, this card could be used in a deck as a starter type Pokemon, but I would much rather keep it on the bench and use it with Garbodor.
