Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mothim from the Arceus set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Mothim doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Cloak Party and requires no energy cards at all. This move allows you to search your deck for any 3 Burmy and/or Wormadam and put them into your hand. Mothim's second move is called Energy Assist and for one colorless energy card this move does 30 damage, you can also search your discard pile when using this move and take one energy card from there and attach it to one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is an extremely fast card that allows you to set up other Pokemon on your bench. All you need to do is put Mothim into the active Pokemon spot, use Cloak Party to get Burmy and Wormadam onto your bench and then the next turn use Energy Assist to attach energy cards to Wormadam after you evolved Burmy. After doing those two things I would either get another Burmy and Wormadam onto your bench and attach another energy card to one of your benched Pokemon or retreat Mothim for free and move in one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This card can't do much damage but it makes up for it with free retreat costs and the ability to attack quickly. I would use this card in any deck you plan to use Wormadam in. This is a great card to move in and out of play while attaching energy cards to your benched Pokemon. So if you need another Grass Pokemon in your deck consider this card a must have.
