Stantler -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Stantler BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stantler from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Stantler is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 90, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Stantler does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mystifying Horns, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to confuse the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Stantler's second move is called Big Charge and for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage plus 50 more damage if you have a Mega evolution on your bench.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Stantler 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, the only way I would even consider using this card in a deck is if I had at least one Mega EX in my deck, that way I could just put one double colorless energy card on Stantler and keep it on the bench until I get a Mega in play, then take advantage of Stantler's Big Charge move and do 80 damage a turn for only 1 energy card.  If I'm not playing any Mega EX cards in my deck, I would not use this card at all, since Mystifying Horns is a coin flip based move and Big Charge only does average damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Other than just being limited, damage wise, if not using a Mega EX card, this card is pretty decent overall, requiring only colorless energy cards to attack, having a low retreat cost, and a solid HP.  So if you're building a deck, this card requires some consideration.
