Hoppip -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Hoppip Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Hoppip from the Steam Siege set.  Hoppip is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an HP of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Hoppip does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Splash that does 10 damage for one colorless energy card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Hoppip is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Skiploom, and a Stage 2 evolution in Jumpluff, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of days, 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, I will just act like Hoppip does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card is not usable, mainly because of its very low, almost Magikarp like HP.  You may be able to get away with the first turn of the game having this card in the active Pokemon spot and doing 10 damage with Splash, but after that, you're just asking for trouble.  So unless you're using this card with at least Skiploom, do not use this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  All you have to do is look at the HP to know about this card, this low HP overrides all of the other things on this card, like its low HP and solid move.  So like I said above, no reason to play this card in a deck on its own.
