Trumbeak -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Trumbeak Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Trumbeak from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set.  Trumbeak is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Trumbeak does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Bullet Seed, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Trumbeak is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pikipek into play (I reviewed Pikipek from this set yesterday) and then evolve Pikipek into Trumbeak.  Pikipek does have a Stage 2 evolution in Toucannon, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Trumbeak is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Pikipek, you'll know I thought that card was below average overall, mainly due to its low HP, other than that, the one move it did have was solid, doing up to 20 damage for only one Colorless Energy card.  So knowing this about Pikipek and looking at this Trumbreak card, this card is similar to its Basic evolution form, having one decent move, but a low HP.  Because of this, I would pass on using the first two Pokemon in this line without using Toucannon.  The only way I would use this line without Toucannon would be if you're already using multiple Trick Coin Trainer cards in your deck, that way, you have two chances at doing major damage when using Bullet Seed.

Pokemon Card Rating:  
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Similarly to Pikipek from yesterday, this card has the potential to do a good amount of damage when attacking, but because it has a low HP and only one move, I am giving it a below average rating overall.  Together with Pikepek, these two Pokemon get a 2 out of 5 rating from me.
