Pokemon Card of the Day: Sawsbuck (Black and White)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Sawsbuck from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon, and is the evolution of Deerling. It has an hp of 90, a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Sawsbuck doesn't have any abilities but it does have two moves, the first move is called Nature Power and for one colorless energy card it does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each grass energy attached to all Pokemon in play. Sawsbuck's second move is called Horn Leech and does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, in Sawsbuck's case it requires one grass and two colorless energy cards. Also when using this move you may remove up to 20 damage from Sawsbuck. As far as strategy goes you would want to utilize Nature Power so you'll want to make sure there are plenty of grass energy cards in play so you can do a lot of damage for only one energy card. I would try and make Nature Power do at least 60 damage before I would put it into the active Pokemon and if you do get in trouble when battling with this Pokemon you can use its second move and heal Sawsbuck. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5, to me this card is quite average, it has the average hp for a stage 1 Pokemon and the normal moveset. I do like that it can heal itself making its hp seem a little higher than 90. If you're looking for a grass type Pokemon to fill a spot in your deck you may want to take a look at Sawsbuck. So thanks for reading today's review of Sawsbuck from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Emboar from the same set.
