Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sawk from the Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Set. Sawk is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Sawk doesn't have an Ability and it only has one move called Five Fierce Chops which takes two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip five coins, unfortunately Sawk can't attack during its next turn after using Five Fierce Chops.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card that doesn't have an evolution and since this card only has one move, the strategy for this card is extremely straightforward, whenever you have two energy cards on Sawk and need to put a Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot, move Sawk into that spot and start using Five Fierce Chops. This card really depends on luck, because if you aren't lucky and don't flip any heads, this card is a waste to put in the deck, and besides only doing 20 or 0 damage the turn you attack you can't attack the next turn. I would sparingly use one Sawk card in a mostly fighting type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. Today's Pokemon Card -- Sawk, and yesterday's card -- Throh are pretty similar, so if you're looking to choose between the two I would definitely recommend using Throh. In my opinion Sawk isn't very good at all, it does have the potential to do 100 in a turn but since it can't attack consecutive turns, it can do 50 damage on average per turn at best which isn't great at all...and this is best case scenario. So that is why I'm giving this card such a low rating, I would definitely recommend using almost any card besides this one in a fighting type deck.
