Deerling -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Deerling Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Deerling from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Deerling 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. Deerling does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Find a Friend and for one colorless energy card says to search your deck for a Pokemon, reveal it, and put it into your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Deerling is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Sawsbuck, which is most recently in the Emerging Powers and Black and White sets, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since those cards aren't in the standard format you're going to have to try and use this card on its own.  On its own, this card is essentially an unlimited use Trainer card, since each turn you can retrieve a Pokemon from your deck and put it into your hand.  It could be useful to start the game with this card in the active Pokemon spot so that you can get your bench set up, but late in games, this card won't be very useful, especially since it does not have a move that can do damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Sawsbuck, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I do like the one move that this card has and the fact it requires a colorless energy card to use, but because this card can't do any damage when attacking, I won't highly recommend, plus, you can easily replace this card with a Trainer.
