Petilil -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Petilil Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Petilil from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Petilil is a Basic, Grass type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Petilil does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Blot, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 10 damage, plus it heals 10 damage from Petilil.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Petilil is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Lilligant, 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, because this card has a below average HP, I would not recommend using it in a deck.  I do like that this card can attack very quickly and it heals damage from itself, making its 50 HP seem a bit higher, but still, it would be an easy target to knock out in one move later in games.  So, unless you have a way to increase Petilil's HP, I would look elsewhere for a Grass type Pokemon card to use in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Lilligant, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I mentioned above, this card does have some positives, like its low retreat cost, low attack cost, and the fact that it can heal itself, but because of its low HP, this card should not be used in a deck without Lilligant.
