Bellsprout -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Bellsprout Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bellsprout from the Guardians Rising set.  This is the first card that I've reviewed from the Guardians Rising set.  Bellsprout is a Basic, Grass type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Bellsprout does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Vine Whip, for two Energy cards, one each of Grass and Colorless, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bellsprout is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Weepinbell, and a Stage 2 evolution in Victreebel, 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 Bellsprout does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, although this card can do a fair amount of damage with its only move, because the card just has one move, and it requires two Energy cards instead of one to use, I would recommend passing on using this card on its own.  If you want to use this card as a start to this entire Pokemon family, I would recommend using it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Like I stated above, the main thing making this card slightly below average is its slow attack, other than that, this card has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and very good move.  So again, if you're looking for a starter type Pokemon to use in your deck, I would look elsewhere, but there are plenty of cards out there worse than this Bellsprout.
