Patrat -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Patrat Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Patrat from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Patrat is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Patrat does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Glance, for one Colorless Energy card, this move lets you look at the top card of your opponent's deck.  The second move on this card is called Tackle, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Patrat is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Watchog, 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, unless you think you'll gain a big advantage by starting the game with Patrat in your Active Pokemon spot and using its Glance move to see the top card of your opponent's deck, I would look elsewhere for a Basic Pokemon card to use and probably evolve this entire line on the Bench.  Although doing 20 damage for one Energy card, if you use a Double Colorless Energy card, is solid, I would still pass on using this card on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Watchog, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Like I mentioned above, this card does have some positives on it, like a solid HP, and the fact it has two moves.  I'm personally not a huge fan of Glance and you need two Energy cards on this card to attack and do damage, so again, without using Watchog in your deck, I would pass on using this card.
