Pawniard -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Pawniard Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pawniard from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Pawniard is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Pawniard does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Cut Down, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Pawniard's second move is called Metal Claw, this move requires two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pawniard is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Bisharp, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own if I were to use this Pawniard card in a deck, I definitely wouldn't use more than one of them because it is slower on the attack, but if I did use one I would want to get it into the active Pokemon spot early, use Cut Down first to hopefully prevent my opponent's active Pokemon from attacking and then after that use Metal Claw.  Metal Claw does do above average damage but it is a slower move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Nothing really stands out to me about this card, that is why it is average.  Average hp, retreat cost, and moves.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, this card may be used in a deck on its own, but it will be a bit slower, but still should be a good starter Pokemon.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Pawniard from the X and Y set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Pawniard's stage 1 evolution Bisharp, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
