Fletchling -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Fletchling Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fletchling from the Guardians Rising set.  Fletchling is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Fletchling does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Growl, for one Colorless Energy card, this move makes it so your opponent's Pokemon during their next turn do 20 less damage to Fletchling when attacking.  Flap is the name of this card's second move, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fletchling is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Fletchinder, and a Stage 2 evolution in Talonflame, 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 Fletchling does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, because this card has a low HP, I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  Plus, this card requires two Basic Energy cards to do damage when attacking.  So, if used on its own, without any of its evolution forms, there is no reason to use this card in a deck.  If used with its evolution forms, Growl does make a good way to prolong the time Fletchling can be in the Active Pokemon spot while you try to get to Fletchlinder in your hand.

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.  Overall, this card is one not worth using in a deck, but it still can be used in any type deck since it is a Colorless type Pokemon, and it has two moves.  This card would be better off used on the Bench to get to Talonflame.
