Weavile -- Next Destinies Set Pokemon Card Review

Weavile Next Destinies Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weavile from the Next Destinies set. This is a Stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Weavile doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Dark Penalty and does 90 damage to the defending Pokemon for one darkness energy card, if that Pokemon has a Pokemon Tool card attached to it, if not this move does nothing. Weavile's second move is called Fury Swipes and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip three coins, this move costs three colorless energy cards.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I wouldn't use this card at all, other than for Dark Penalty. I would include 1 each of Sneasel and Weavile in any type of deck and keep Weavile on the bench and attach a special energy card to it and put it into play if the opposing player has a Pokemon tool in play, then retreat Weavile right after that. Since Fury Swipes only requires colorless energy cards, if you are forced to attack, you can attach any type of energy cards to Weavile and still attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this card is pretty dreadful, Fury Swipes is okay, but there are a plethora of moves on a plethora of other cards that are better. Dark Penalty is good but more than likely it will do nothing. So I would recommend staying away from this card.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Weavile from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Shiftry from the same set.
