Bronzor -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Bronzor Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bronzor from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Bronzor is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Bronzor does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Iron Defense, for one metal energy card this move prevents all effects of attacks done to Bronzor during its next turn if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Bronzor's second move is called Hammer In and for two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bronzor is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Bronzong, 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, this card is okay, and could be used as a starter type Pokemon because you can defend yourself the first turn with Iron Defense and then the second turn and the turns thereafter do 20 damage a turn.  I myself would probably pass on using this card in a deck with Bronzong just because it requires two energy cards to do damage and requires that same amount of energy cards to retreat.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Bronzong, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I do like that this card has a solid HP and two moves, but this card is slow on the attack, one move is based off of a coin flip, and you have to give up all energy cards needed to attack when retreating.  So if you are building a metal type deck, there are definitely much better metal type cards out there to use.
