Litwick -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Litwick Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Litwick from the Guardians Rising set.  Litwick is a Basic, Fire type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Litwick does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Flickering Flames, for one Fire Energy card this move does 10 damage plus puts the defending Pokemon to Sleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Litwick is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Lampent, and a Stage 2 evolution in Chandelure, 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 Litwick does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, if you can increase the HP of Litwick or can get it in the Active Pokemon spot to start the game, this is a solid card overall since it can attack for only one Energy card, and potentially give you extra time to set up your Bench Pokemon while the defending Pokemon is Asleep.  However, if you're looking to use this card without doing either of those two things, I would pass on this card, since it is limited by having only one move and has a below average HP for a Basic Pokemon.

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 holding this card down is its low HP, other than that, this card has a good move and low retreat cost, so while I wouldn't recommend using many of these in a deck, it does make a good start to the line if you're planning on evolving Litwick into Lampent, or need time at the beginning of the game to set up your Bench Pokemon.

False, as there were no Chandelure in Plasma Storm

That is false. Plasma Storm set did not include Chandelure.
