Nosepass -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Nosepass Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nosepass from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Nosepass is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Nosepass does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Thunder Wave, for one colorless energy card this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Nosepass's second move is called Rolling Tackle and for three energy cards, one fighting and two colorless, this move does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nosepass is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Probopass, 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, unless you're using a full set of Trick Coin trainer cards, there isn't a path for using this card in a deck without Probopass.  The main reason I say this is because you don't want to use this card solely for Thunder Wave since it is based on a coin flip and its retreat cost is higher than Thunder Wave's attack cost, and, unless you use one fighting energy card and one Double Colorless energy card, Rolling Tackle does below average damage.  So although this card does have an above average HP and two moves, I would feel much safer not using this card in a deck or allowing it to sit on your bench while you wait to evolve it into Probopass.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Probopass, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card does have an above average HP, but both of the moves this card have are below average, and this card has a somewhat high retreat cost.  Overall, although this card isn't terrible, it isn't one that I would recommend using on its own.

There is no specific level, it evolves in a magnetic field area.

It evolves at any level as long as it's in Mt. Coronet, Chargestone Cave, Kalos Route 13, or New Mauville.
