Rufflet -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Rufflet Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rufflet from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Rufflet is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rufflet 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 the move also does 10 damage to Rufflet.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rufflet is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Braviary, 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, since this is a colorless type Pokemon card and can use any type of energy to attack, there is merit to at least consider using one of these cards when deck building.  If you can get Rufflet into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, it can do a fair amount of damage right away.  However, you'll either have to retreat Rufflet pretty quickly, evolve it, or somehow remove its self-inflicted damage, if you can do any of those things this card is solid overall, otherwise I would look elsewhere.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Braviary, this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, this card potentially could be used in a deck, since it can do 20 damage per turn, has a solid HP, and a low retreat cost, but because of its self inflicted damage and the fact it only has one move, this card isn't that great and shouldn't be a staple in a lot of decks.
