Sableye -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Sableye Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sableye from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Sableye is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 80, it has no weakness or resistance and has a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sableye does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Filch, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to draw a card.  Sableye's second move is called Rip Claw, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 30 damage.  Besides doing the damage, this move also allows you to discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sableye is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, I could definitely see using up to two of these Sableye cards in a darkness type deck.  I would limit this card to two because it doesn't evolve into anything else and it does require two energy cards to do damage.  Because this card can attack for only one energy card it is an ideal starter type Pokemon card, I would get one of your Sableye cards into play as soon as possible and use whichever move you can.  Rip Claw is a very good move, not only does it do above average damage, but if you discard an energy card attached to your opponent's Pokemon, it should give you time to set up your own Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  There really isn't anything to dislike about this card and it should definitely be considered when building any darkness type deck out there.  I like its above average hp, the fact it has two moves, and that its retreat cost is low.  So if you're building a darkness type deck, you really can't go wrong by adding this card to it.
