Larvitar 40/124 -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Larvitar Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Larvitar from the Fates Collide set.  This is the first of two Larvitar cards that I'll be reviewing.  Larvitar is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Larvitar does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Reckless Charge and for one colorless energy card this move does 20 damage, however this move also does 10 damage to Larvitar.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Larvitar is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Pupitar, and a Stage 2 evolution in Tyranitar, which I'll be reviewing in the next couple of weeks, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet and not reviewed the second Larvitar card from this set yet, I will just act like Larvitar does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck.  Even though this card would be good as a starter type Pokemon, since it can do 20 damage a turn for one energy card, unless you plan on evolving Larvitar, you could end up knowing out Larvitar pretty quickly doing damage to itself every turn when attacking.  So, on its own, do not use this card in a deck, with at least Pupitar, this card could be used in the active Pokemon spot if evolved after a turn or two.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card.  One that is better with the evolution forms in this family instead of on its own.  Other than doing damage to itself when attacking, this card is pretty solid overall.
