White Kyurem -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

White Kyurem Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of White Kyurem from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  White Kyurem is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  White Kyurem does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Burning Icicles, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move does 40 damage, plus if this card has any fire energy attached to it, this move does 20 damage to 2 of your opponent's Benched Pokemon.  White Kyurem's second move is called Blizzard Burn, for three energy cards, two water and one colorless, this move does 130 damage, however it makes White Kyurem unable to attack during its next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since White Kyurem 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, this card would really only work well in a dual type deck of fire and water type Pokemon, that way you could do 80 total damage with Burning Icicles.  If you want to use Blizzard Burn often, you're going to have to either be able to retreat White Kyurem for free the next turn or give up three energy cards so that you can then put a Pokemon in play that can attack.  So again, if you're building a Water type deck only, this card shouldn't be used, but if you're building a dual type deck, I could see using one of these White Kyurem cards and using Burning Icicles fairly often.

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 Fates Collide set.  This card has a very good HP, and two powerful moves, however the card is a bit on the slow side and has a really high retreat cost.  So like I stated above, there are certain decks this card may work well in, but overall, I would look elsewhere.
