Servine #4/114 -- Black and White Pokemon Card Review

Servine #4/114 Black and White Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Servine from the Black and White Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two consecutive Servine card reviews I'll be doing from the Black and White set.  Servine is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Servine doesn't have an Ability and this Servine card only has one move called Wring Out which takes two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless and does 30 damage.  Besides doing the damage, if you get a heads when you flip a coin, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed and you're able to discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, just like yesterday, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card that has a stage 2 evolution in Serperior, I would recommend keeping Servine on the bench and evolving it into Serperior before putting it into play, I would do this because Serperior can do much more damage than Servine and it has a higher hp.  There are two Serperior cards from the Black and White set and I've reviewed both of those cards on my blog previously.  If you have to put Servine into play, your only choice is to use Wring Out because Servine only has the one move.  Like yesterday, if you want to use Servine in your deck I would make sure and Serperior in the deck as well, and use a 4-3-2 or 3-2-1 line of Snivy, Servine, and Serperior in a grass type deck.  Below, you'll see how I rate this card to yesterday's card, but I would probably use either Servine cards from this deck interchangeably, I would hope to have two energy cards on Servine by the time I have it in the active Pokemon spot and both cards do 30 damage for the same amount of energy, this one is a bit better since it can also remove an energy card from the defending Pokemon whereas yesterday's card couldn't.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  I think this card is pretty similar to yesterday's card, except for the fact this card has one move and yesterday's card had two moves.  This card has the same hp, weakness, resistance, and retreat cost so that is why I'm rating the two cards the exact same.
