Alolan Vulpix -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Alolan Vulpix Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Alolan Vulpix from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Alolan Vulpix is a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Alolan Vulpix does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Beacon, for zero Energy cards, this move allows you to search your deck for up to 2 Pokemon and put them into your hand.  Alolan Vulpix's second move is called Icy Snow, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Alolan Vulpix is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Alolan Ninetales GX, 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, if your deck has a lot of Pokemon that are evolution Pokemon, like Stage 1, Stage 2, Mega EX, etc, this is a perfect starter type Pokemon card to use in your deck, you can start the game with Alolan Vulpix in the Active Pokemon spot and for no Energy at all, get those Pokemon onto your Bench.  If you're using 4 Double Colorless Energy cards in your deck, Icy Snow requires only one Energy card to use, therefore allowing you to do damage or find Pokemon with this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Alolan Vulpix, this is an average Basic Pokemon overall.  Like I mentioned above, if you normally have Trainer cards in your deck to find Pokemon to put into play, this Alolan Vulpix card can replace those Trainer cards.  So, regardless of the type of deck you're building, I think this card should be considered.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
