Axew -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Axew Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Axew from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Axew is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Axew does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Strong Bond, for one colorless energy card, this move allows you to search your deck for a supporter card named Iris and put it into your hand.  Axew's second move is called Dragon Claw, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of fighting and metal, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Axew is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Fraxure and a stage 2 evolution in Haxorus, 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, I would not use this card in a deck.  I say this for a couple of reasons, the main reason is that it has a low hp and that the card requires two energy cards to actually do some damage to the opposing Pokemon, not only does that move require two energy cards, but you'll need to build a dual type deck, metal and fighting, to be able to use that move.  So for those reasons I wouldn't use this card in a deck on its own.  If you choose to use this card in a deck, I wouldn't use more than 1, and I would make sure to have at least 1 Iris supporter card in your deck so you can use Strong Bond the first time when Axew is in the active Pokemon spot, then use Dragon Claw the second turn and play the Iris supporter card that turn allowing you to do 10 damage more for each Prize card your opponent has taken.

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.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, this card has a below average hp, and two average to slightly below average moves.  The main thing you'll have to watch out for if you want to use this card is the fact it requires two unlikely energy types to use.  So again, I would not recommend using this card in a deck on its own.

PTP,If you are using this card with Iris(the card lets your active pokemon do 10 more for each prize card your opponent has taken)it would be good to use axew later during the game when your opponent have something like 2 or 1 prize card left.
