Weepinbell -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Weepinbell Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weepinbell from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card set.  Weepinbell is a Stage 1, Grass type Pokemon card, with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Weepinbell does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Muddy Acid, for two Energy cards, one each of Grass and Colorless, this move does 40 damage, plus it allows you to discard an Energy card from your opponent's Active Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Weepinbell is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bellsprout into play (I reviewed Bellsprout from this set yesterday) and then evolve Bellsprout into Weepinbell.  Weepinbell does have a Stage 2 evolution in Victreebel, 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 Weepinbell is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Bellsprout, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall, its only downside being it required two Energy cards to attack instead of one, otherwise it had a solid HP, low retreat cost, and could do up to 30 damage when attacking.  So knowing this about Bellsprout and looking at this Weepinbell card, this card isn't much of an improvement over Bellsprout, so if you aren't using Bellsprout in your deck already, there is no reason to use Weepinbell either, it can only do 10 more damage per turn, plus it has a below average HP for a Stage 1 Pokemon.  Because both Pokemon in this line only have one move, I would recommend either evolving this entire line on the Bench to get to Victreebel, or, using the attack each card has, when in the Active Pokemon spot.

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 Guardians Rising set.  Similarly to Bellsprout, this card is very limited in what it can do, only having one move, add to this the fact it has a below average HP and a higher retreat cost, and this card is one you'll want to avoid, especially if you're not using Victreebel in your deck.  Together with Bellsprout from this set, I am giving the two Pokemon a 2 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave each card individually.

Generally speaking, fire types do lots more damage than other types of Pokemon. Weepinbell has a times 2 weakness to fire types, which makes it more vulnerable to fire types. Bellsprout, the 2 stage of Weepinbell, is opted for in battle. I do think Weepinbell evolves into Bellsprout in level 21. The battle strategy really helped me! Well writen!
