Duosion -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Duosion Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Duosion from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card set.  Duosion is a stage 1, Psychic type Pokemon card, with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless energy card retreat cost.  Duosion does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Double Link and for two energy cards, one each of Colorless and Psychic, this move does 10 damage plus 30 more damage if Solosis is on your Bench and 60 more damage if Duosion is on your Bench.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Duosion is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Solosis into play (I reviewed Solosis from this set yesterday) and then evolve Solosis into Duosion.  Duosion does have a Stage 2 evolution in Reuniclus, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Duosion is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Solosis, you'll know that I thought it was a very poor Basic Pokemon card, based solely on its low HP.  Solosis is pretty similar to Duosion in that it can do a fair amount of damage if another Pokemon from this line is on your Bench, but with such a low HP, I couldn't recommend using the card on its own, and especially not more than 1 of it.  So knowing this about Solosis and looking at this Duosion card, essentially this card is the same as Solosis, it can do a fair amount of damage overall, but has an extremely low HP, and is made even worse by the fact in order to do more damage with Double Link, more of this Pokemon family has to be in play.  So I should know tomorrow, but unless Reuniclus is absolutely amazing, this entire line should be avoided.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  I was considering giving this card a 1 out of 5 rating, just like Solosis from yesterday, for its extremely low HP, but I like the fact that this card can do a good amount of damage if played correctly.  However, together with Solosis from this set, I can't give this line more than a 1 out of 5 rating.
