Lampent -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Lampent Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lampent from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card set.  Lampent is a Stage 1, Fire type Pokemon card, with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Lampent does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Will-O-Wisp, for one Fire Energy card this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lampent is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litwick into play (I reviewed Litwick from this set yesterday) and then evolve Litwick into Lampent.  Litwick does have a Stage 2 evolution in Chandelure, 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 Lampent is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Litwick, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall, I did like that it had a low retreat cost and a move that could not only do damage but put the defending Pokemon Asleep, but with a below average HP and only having one move, the card wasn't recommended when deck building.  So knowing this about Litwick and looking at this Lampent card, this card is very similar in that it has a below average HP, only one move, and a low retreat cost.  Because Lampent is limited in having only one move, and its only move can only do a maximum of 30 damage, I would pass on using Lampent in a deck without also using Chandelure, there just is no reason to try and use this card in a deck since neither its HP or move are that great.

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 Litwick from yesterday, this card just isn't powerful enough, nor has the HP to be used in a deck, especially without Chandelure.  Because of this, both Litwick and Chandelure combined get the same rating that I gave each card individually, a 2 out of 5 rating.
