Burmy -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Burmy Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Burmy from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Burmy is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Burmy does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The one move that this card has is called Hang Down and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Burmy is a basic Pokemon card with two stage 1 evolution forms in Wormadam and Mothim, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with those Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution forms.  So, on its own, this card can be used in any type deck since Hang Down requires only a colorless energy card to use, plus it can attack for only one energy card so it can be used as a starter type Pokemon.  However, since this card just has the one move, I wouldn't use more than 1 of these in a deck and would avoid using this card later in games, since it won't make much of an impact on the game.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Mothim or Wormadam, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card.  Other than just being limited on the moves it has and the damage it can do, this card is pretty average, with a solid HP, quick move, and low retreat cost.  But, like I said above, this card really can't do much later in games which makes this card not so usable in battle.

The question is a bit confusing, since I'm not sure if you're asking for strictly forms, or two different types as a Stage 1.

I'd say false if you just mean it can evolve into two different types, as Riolu can evolve into either a fighting Lucario or a steel Lucario.

But it's true I believe if you meant strictly forms.
