Vivillon -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Vivillon X and Y Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vivillon from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Vivillon is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Vivillon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Conversion Power, this move requires one grass energy and it either puts the defending Pokemon to sleep or poisons them, depending on which one you choose.  Vivillon's second move is called Colorlful Wind, for three colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage plus 30 more damage for each different type of basic energy attached to Vivillon, so potentially this move could do 120+ damage per turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vivillon is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Scatterbug into play and then evolve it into Spewpa before you can evolve Spewpa into Vivillon, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of those Pokemon cards are below average and should definitely not be used without using Vivillon.  Because the first two Pokemon in this line are so bad, the only time I would ever use this line in a deck is if the deck had 2 or more energy cards in it.  Then I would put a 1-1-1 line of Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon, evolve into Vivillon on the bench and use Colorfull Wind when Vivillon is in the active Pokemon spot with as many different energy cards as possible.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  I like how this card has one quick move and when slower but more powerful move, plus it has a low retreat cost.  The hp on this card is low just like the first two Pokemon in this line, but this entire line could easily be used in a dual or more type deck.  If you're building a solely grass type deck, I would not use this line at all.  Overall, I would give this entire line a 2 out of 5 rating, individually Scatterbug was a 2, Spewpa was a 1, and Vivillon a 3.

I think the High Plains Vivillon card is more valuable because that pattern is exclusive to the English XY set. The Elegant, Continental and Marine pattern card have the same reason, and their respective is Japan, German and Italian.

Vivillon card with the High Plains pattern artwork is worth more since it is English version X & Y set exclusive as compared to Vivillion card with the Standard Meaddow pattern artwork which is available in all versions of the X & Y set.

The High Plains (Orange) and the Meadow (Pink) patterns are both equally rare in the English set, meaning that their worth will be similar, but because Meadow pattern is seen in all language sets, I would expect the High Plains Vivillon to be only slightly worth more.

Both versions of Vivillon from this set should worth the same since they both have the same rarity in the set. In addition, they also have the same set number.
