Fletchinder -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Fletchinder Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fletchinder from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card set.  Fletchinder is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Fletchinder does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Flap, for one Colorless Energy card, this move does 20 damage.  Razor Wind is the name of this card's second move, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 40 damage, however, you must flip a coin when using this move, if you get a tails, the move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fletchinder is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Fletchling into play (I reviewed Fletchling from this set yesterday) and then evolve Fletchling into Fletchinder.  Fletchling does have a Stage 2 evolution in Talonflame, 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 Fletchinder is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Fletchling, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  The main reason for not wanting to use Fletchling on its own is because the card has a below average HP, it also requires two Energy cards to do damage when attacking.  Knowing this about Fletchling and looking at this Fletchinder card, this card follows suit, it also has a below average HP, and two weak moves.  Although it is good this card can fit into any type deck and can attack for only one Energy card, with only 70 HP, it can get knocked out pretty quickly, and the move that does more damage on this card, Razor Wind, only has a 50% chance of doing damage when attacking.  So there is enough negatives on this card that I certainly wouldn't recommend using Fletchling or Fletchinder without using Talonflame in your deck.

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.  Like I mentioned above, this card is just not good, with a low HP for a Stage 1, and two moves that are weak for a Stage 1 Pokemon card.  Add to the fact that this card has a less than 100% chance at doing damage when attacking, and there is no reason to use this line in a deck.  Together with Fletchling from this set, I would give both Pokemon combined a 1 out of 5 rating.
