Sawk -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Sawk Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sawk from the Dragons Exalted 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, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sawk does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move is called Defensive Stance and for one colorless energy card this move allows you to heal 30 damage from Sawk, however after doing this you must switch Sawk with one of your benched Pokemon.  Sawk's second move is called Karate Chop, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, and does 70 damage minus 10 damage for each damage counter on this Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with no evolutions, you only need to include this card in the deck if you want to use it.  Since Sawk is quite slow, at least in being able to do damage, I would suggest keeping Sawk on the bench until you have three energy cards on it, so you can move it into the active Pokemon and start using Karate Chop right away and do 70 damage that first turn.  I would use Karate Chop twice, Defensive Stance the third turn to remove damage from Sawk and then use a different Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot since that is what will be forced to happen when you use Defensive Stance.  I would only use 1 of this Pokemon card in a fighting type deck, one thing good about this card is that it requires mostly colorless energy cards so you may be able to fit it into almost any type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  I would suggest staying away from this card at all costs.  It is too slow and cannot do much damage at all, it is a waste to put three energy cards on this card and then as soon as Sawk takes any damage it can't do much damage at all any more and your only other option is to basically retreat it.  So I would not recommend using this card at all.
