Rattata -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Rattata BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rattata from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Rattata is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 30.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Rattata does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Dangerous Suspicion and for one colorless energy card this move allows you to draw a card and then switch Rattata with one of your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rattata is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Raticate, 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, I cannot recommend using this card in a deck, mainly because it has too low of an HP and if you aren't attacking first, this card is going to get knocked out in one turn.  The only time I would put this card into the active Pokemon spot is if you for sure are going to evolve it and you know you'll be attacking first, you can then use Dangerous Suspicion the first turn and then use a different Pokemon the next.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Raticate, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  You don't have to look much farther than its HP to see this card is very poor.  There is just no reason to play such a weak card in the active Pokemon spot, one that is so susceptible to a knock out.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
