Swoobat -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Swoobat Emerging Powers Set Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swoobat from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Swoobat doesn't have an ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Psyshot which does 30 damage for one psychic energy card. Swoobat's other move is called Phat Sound which takes two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does ten damage to each your opponenent's Pokemon for each heads you get.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this would be a great card to put into a spread damage type deck since Phat Sound can do 30 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon. If you get extremely lucky and are able to do the full amount of damage with Phat Sound two turns in a row you could knock out quite a few Pokemon with this card. I would move this card in and out of play and discard one energy card each time you move it in and out, I think this card is important enough to use the whole game, however you can't keep it in their too long otherwise it will get knocked out since it has 90 hp.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This is one great spread damage card. I would love to be able to do 30 damage a turn to all of your opponent's Pokemon, that would be 180 damage every turn, and even if you don't have two energy cards on Swoobat you can use Psyshot which still does 30 damage. So if you're using a spread damage type deck definitely include this card in it.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Swoobat from the Emerging Powers set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Scolipede from the Emerging Powers set.
