Beldum -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Beldum Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Beldum from the Guardians Rising set.  Beldum is a Basic, Metal type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Beldum does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Core Beam, for one Metal Energy card, this move does 20 damage, however you must discard a Metal type Energy attached to Beldum after using this move.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Beldum is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Metang, and a Stage 2 evolution in Metagross, 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 Beldum does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, although this card can attack quickly and do above average damage, because it just has the one move, and you need to continuously attach Energy cards to Beldum in order to attack, I would either not use this card in a deck at all, or keep it on the Bench to help evolve this line into Metagross GX.

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.  This card does have a solid HP, low retreat cost, and a quick move, but because you need to discard an Energy card each time you attack with this card, it isn't worth using in a deck on its own.
