Vanillite -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Vanillite Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vanillite from the Guardians Rising set.  Vanillite a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Vanillite does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Triple Spin, for one Water Energy card, the move does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 3 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vanillite is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Vanillish, and a Stage 2 evolution in Vanilluxe, 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 Vanillite does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, if you're using 4 Trick Coin Trainer cards in your deck, or have another way to guarantee at least one heads when flipping coins when performing Triple Spin, this card has potential for a starter type Pokemon.  Otherwise, keep this card on your Bench if you plan on using Vanillish, or do not use it at all.

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, this card does have a decent move in Triple Spin, but other than that, it has a below average HP, and its only move is based off of coin flips.  So overall, look elsewhere for a Basic, Water type Pokemon to use in your deck.
