Spewpa -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Spewpa Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spewpa from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Spewpa is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Spewpa does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bug Bite, this move does 10 damage for one colorless energy card.  Spewpa's second move is called Stun Spore, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one grass, and does 40 damage, plus it paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spewpa is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Scatterbug into play (I reviewed Scatterbug from this set yesterday) and then evolve Scatterbug into Spewpa.  Spewpa does have a stage 2 evolution in Vivillon that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Spewpa is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review of Scatterbug, you'll know that I thought that card shouldn't be used on its own because it was so limited in what it could do and because it had such a low hp.  Knowing this about Scatterbug and looking at this Spewpa card, I would not use either of these two cards in a deck without using Vivillon.  Again, this card has a low hp, a very high retreat cost, and two below average moves.  I shouldn't recommend strategy for these cards since they're so bad, but if you choose to use the first two Pokemon in this line without Vivillon, use no more than a 2-2 line and make sure to get Spewpa in the active Pokemon when you can so Scatterbug doesn't get knocked out right away, then put three energy cards on Spewpa so you can use Stun Spore every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a pretty terrible stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Besides having two below average moves, and a low hp, the card has an extremely high retreat cost in my opinion that really makes you not want to use the card.  So so far, neither of the first two Pokemon cards in this line are worth using, hopefully Vivillon is that much better than these two cards.  Overall, I would rate the line so far as a 1 out of 5, Scatterbug was a 2, Spewpa was a 1.
