Weavile -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Weavile Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weavile from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Weavile is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Weavile does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Call for Family, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to search your deck for up to 2 Basic Pokemon cards are put them onto your bench. Weavile's second move is called Claw Rend, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if the defending Pokemon has any damage counters on it already.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Weavile is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Sneasel into play and then evolve Sneasel into Weavile.  There are actually two Sneasel cards in this set and I've reviewed them the past two days, I prefer the second Sneasel card in this set, #51/016 better than the first one because it has two good moves, whereas the first one really don't have any good moves.  So if you were to use this Pokemon line in a deck, I would use a 1-1 line of Sneasel and Weavile, I would only use this line as part of a spread damage type deck, I would then use a Pokemon that does 10 damage to every Pokemon of your opponent's first, then later in the game, I would move my Weavile card, which has been set up on my bench with three energy cards, into the active Pokemon spot and then I would be able to use Claw Rend every turn and do 90 damage to every Pokemon because every one of my opponent's Pokemon already has damage on it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  This card is very average overall, since it has an average hp, low retreat cost, and two average moves.  However, I would recommend using this card in a deck if you're building a spread damage type deck because then Claw Rend is an above average move.  Altogether, if you're using the second Sneasel card from this set and Weavile, I would give them a 3 out of 5 rating combined, individually I also gave both of these cards 3 out of 5 ratings.

False. Not every Weavile card had been darkness type as there is a water type Weavile card from Diamond & Pearl: Secret Wonders set in the English Pokemon TCG.


Jonnie Yang said...

The Weavile (#40/132) from the Diamond & Pearl: Secret Wonders set is a Water-type card (though its ability, Dark Engage, can make both active Pokemon into Dark-type).

So my answer is FALSE
