Horsea -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Horsea Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Horsea from the Burning Shadows set.  Horsea is a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Water Arrow, for one Water Energy card, this move does 10 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Horsea is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Seadra, and a Stage 2 evolution in Kingdra, 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 Horsea does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, because this card just has one move, it isn't worth using, but as a start to this entire line, it is a great card to use, especially in a deck that benefits from spreading damage around.  I like that Water Arrow doesn't state you have to attack a Benched Pokemon, so all of the 6 potential Pokemon in play are fair game.  Other than having only one move, this card does have a solid HP and low retreat cost, making it pretty average overall.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Burning Shadows set.  Like I mentioned above, it doesn't make any sense using this card on its own because it only has one move, making it extremely limited later in games, but as a start to the Seadra and Kingdra line, this is a great start!
