Sneasel #50/106 -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Sneasel Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sneasel from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  There are actually two different Sneasel cards in this set, and I'll be reviewing both in the next two days.  Sneasel is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Sneasel card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Scratch, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.  Sneasel's second move is called Flash Claw, for two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, this move allows you to discard a card from your opponent's hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sneasel is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Weavile, which I'll be reviewing in two days since there are two Sneasel cards in this set, you'll more than likely want to use one of these Sneasel cards with Weavile.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet or even the other Sneasel card, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution or knowing which Sneasel card is better.  So, on its own this card can be used in a deck as a starter type Pokemon because it can attack for one energy card, however, this card is extremely limited in what it can do, so I would not recommend using it in a deck.  Pretty much all you can do, is put this card into the active Pokemon, use Scratch most turns, or put two energy cards on it and discard a card from your opponent's hand, but neither of these two moves are that great that I would put this card into a deck, and definitely if I did use this card in my deck, I wouldn't use more than 1.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  Even though this card has an average hp, low retreat cost, and two moves, I am giving this card a slightly below average 2 rating because the card is just very limited and the second move this card has really doesn't impress me and actually turns me away from using this card.  So if you're building a darkness type deck, I would probably look elsewhere for a basic Pokemon card.
