Swinub -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Swinub Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swinub from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Swinub is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Swinub does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  The only move it has is called Double Headbutt, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, 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 Swinub is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Piloswine and a stage 2 evolution in Mamoswine, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, Swinub is a risky card to use in a deck.  I say this because it is a basic Pokemon card that only has one move, and the only move that it does have requires two energy cards, so it isn't that fast, and when you use Double Headbutt it may end up doing 0 damage which would really make this card seem like a waste in your deck.  If you do decide to use this card in your deck, which I wouldn't, I would only use 1 and try to get it in the active Pokemon spot early in the game because it can do up to 40 damage which will knock out most basic Pokemon in 2 moves or less.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  I do like that this card has an average hp and that it can do up to 40 damage, but its retreat cost is high, and the only move it has potentially can do zero damage every turn.
