Joltik -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Joltik Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Joltik from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Joltik is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 30.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost.  Joltik does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Attach which does 10 damage for one lightning energy card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Joltik is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Galvantula, 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, there really is no way you can play this card in a deck, mainly because of its extremely low HP, this card may last one turn early in the game, but later in the game, it is pretty much a guaranteed one hit knockout.  It is disappointing this card has such a low HP since it has a free retreat cost and a solid move, but because of that HP, there is really never a time that this card should be in the active Pokemon spot, unless you can make its HP 50 or more.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Galvantula, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  All because of this card's low HP, this card is unusable, it is as weak as Magikarp, so unless you need this card to get to Galvantula, do not use this card in a deck.
