Swoobat -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card

Swoobat Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swoobat from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Swoobat is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Swoobat does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Jet Woofer, this move requires one psychic energy card and says for each psychic energy card attached to Swoobat, discard a card from your opponent's deck.  Swoobat's second move is called Acrobatics, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Swoobat is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Woobat into play (I reviewed Woobat from this set yesterday) and then evolve Woobat into Swoobat.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I recommended using Woobat as a starter Pokemon in a psychic type deck, I would move Woobat into the active Pokemon spot and use its move Scout.  And after looking at this Swoobat card, the same strategy still applies to Woobat, however now, I would move Woobat into the active Pokemon spot right away, use Scout, then retreat Woobat soon after, I would then evolve Woobat into Swoobat on the bench and attach three or four energy cards to it.  I would then leave Swoobat on the bench until close to the end of the game, then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Jet Woofer and hopefully make your opponent run out of cards in their deck and lose the game.  I would stick to using Jet Woofer when Swoobat is in the active Pokemon spot unless 20 damage will knock out the defending Pokemon then I would use Acrobatics instead.  I would use a 1-1 line of Woobat and Swoobat in a psychic type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though this card has a below average hp, I am still giving this card an average rating because it does have a low retreat cost, and two moves.  Neither move is great but I like how Jet Woofer doesn't do damage but could end up winning the game for you by making your opponent run out of cards in their deck.  Overall, both cards in this line are average, so I'm giving the line of Woobat and Swoobat from the Boundaries Crossed set a 3 out of 5 rating, both these cards would be a solid addition to a psychic type deck.

Easy one.....
Swoobat shoots ultrasonic sound from its nostrils (in heart shapes) that are powerful enough to destroy boulders. Also anyone that gets caught in these waves emitted by a courting male will experience a positive mood shift.

Congrats to qwart for winning!

Nexi5plitz said...

I said the samething and posted first. I didn't put their "nostrils are strong enough..." because the question was asking that.

@Nexi5plitz To be fairer, I use a random number generator to choose the winner, unless the question is extremely hard, I didn't feel this was a very tough question.
