Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Snivy from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Snivy is a basic, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon,no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Snivy does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. The first move is called Vine Whip and for one grass type energy card this move does 10 damage. Oddish's second move is called Cut and for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 20 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Snivy has a stage 1 evolution in Servine, and a stage 2 evolution in Serperior, I would definitely recommend including both those two Pokemon in a deck with Snivy. However, this Snivy card would function as a great starter Pokemon card so I would definitely use it that way. I would put it into the active Pokemon spot as soon as I could at the start of the game, and depending on how many energy cards you have on Snivy will determine which move you will use. Of course you'll want to evolve it into Servine when you can, but if you need one Pokemon card for a deck, this card may fit the bill, and actually make an impact for you in your game. As a starter Pokemon, I would use 1 of these in a mostly grass type deck, with its evolutions I would use more, but you'll have to read the reviews in the next few days to know how many I would use exactly.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an average yet very solid basic Pokemon card. This card has a solid hp, low retreat cost, and two very solid moves. This card is a great starter Pokemon card and a wonderful way to start off your evolution to Serperior. I wish all basic Pokemon cards with a stage 2 evolution were this good! So like I stated in the strategy section, this card is a good card to use alone, but I would always recommend using cards with its evolutions.
