Clefable -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Clefable Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Clefable from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Clefable is a stage 1, fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Clefable does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Follow Me, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to switch your opponent's active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Clefable's second move is called Moonblast, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fairy and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus any damage done to Clefable during your opponent's next turn is reduced by 30.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Clefable is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Clefairy into play (there are two Clefairy cards in this set and I've reviewed both of them the past two days) and then evolve Clefairy into Clefable.  If you read the past two reviews I've done on Clefairy, you'll know that I thought both cards from this set were average.  I actually preferred the 1st of the two Clefairy cards slightly more because that card had two moves and could do more damage.  So knowing this about the two Clefairy cards from this set and looking at this Clefable card, if you're building a fairy type deck, I would definitely recommend taking a look at this Pokemon family and even using a 2-2 line of these Pokemon.  I would recommend getting this line into the active Pokemon spot early in the game and using Moonblast when you evolve Clefairy into Clefable.  And more than likely early in the game your opponent may not be able to do more than 30 damage so if you use Moonblast your opponent won't do any damage to you at all.  If you can't get this line into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, I would stick put two energy cards on Clefable on the bench and then when it is moved to the active Pokemon spot you could use Follow Me first to get a weaker Pokemon of your opponent's in the active Pokemon spot then use Moonblast after that.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  This card doesn't really have anything that stands out, but I like everything on this card quite a bit, and a lot of little things that I liked added up to make this card an above average card.  I really like how Clefable can move whatever Pokemon of your opponent's it wants into the active Pokemon spot and how Moonblast reduces damage done to Clefable by 30.  Overall, I would give the line of Clefairy and Clefable from this set a 4 out of 5 rating, individually I gave both Clefairy cards a 3 and Clefable a 4.

In 5 sets that is in Jungle set, Base set 2, Expedition Base set, HeartGold and SoulSilver set and Call of Legends set Clefable card has been a rare holo card.

In the Gym Heroes Set, Erika's Clefable is a rare holo.
In the EX Firered and Leafgreen set, there is an Clefable EX rare holo.
Hence I think Clefable has been a rare holo card in 7 ENGLISH SETS.
