Scatterbug -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Scatterbug Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Scatterbug from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Scatterbug is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Scatterbug does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Bug Bite which does 10 damage for one colorless energy card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Scatterbug is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Spewpa and a stage 2 evolution in Vivillon, 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,this card should definitely not be used in a deck.  I say this because Scatterbug only has 40 hp, which is hardly anything, and it only has one move that does 10 damage so if you don't plan on evolving Scatterbug do not use this card because it will be knocked out right away, especially later in games.  If you were to use this card for some reason in a deck, you could really use it in any type deck since Bug Bite requires a colorless energy card, so you would want to get the card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game and use Bug Bite every turn.  If you choose to use this card in a deck, use no more than one of these on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a well below average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  I was going to give this card a 1 rating but other than the hp on this card, everything else is quite average, it is just very limited.  So in the entire line of Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon this card might not be bad, but on its own, I would stay away from this card.

The Vivillon card in the XY set is unique in the fact that it has multiple artworks for the same set number; two for each region, with the Meadow pattern being consistent as one through all the regions.

The Vivillon card in this set is unique because it is printed with 2 patterns for each language(Japanese, German, English, and Italian releases). Each language has "Meadow" pattern and also a special pattern relating to the country: Elegant for Japan, Continental for German, High Plains for English, and Marine for Italian.

Vivillon card's art was printed with 2 different wing patterns for each different language set. The "Meadow" pattern is the pattern that each language set has in common, and another special pattern for each of the set. Though the different artworks, they are having the same set number :)
