Leavanny -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Leavanny Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Leavanny from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Leavanny is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Leavanny does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Coordinate, for one grass energy card, this move allows you to attach a Pokemon tool card to two of your benched Pokemon that do not have Pokemon tool cards on them.  Leavanny's second move is called Leaf Storm, for three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, this move does 70 damage, plus it heals 20 damage from each of your grass Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Leavanny is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Sewaddle into play and then evolve it into Swadloon before you can evolve Swadloon into Leavanny, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average, and I wouldn't have recommended using either of them without this Leavanny card, I actually gave the first two Pokemon in this line a combined rating of 1 out of 5.  So knowing this and looking at Leavanny, if you decide to use this Pokemon family in a deck, I would make sure to only use Leavanny in the active Pokemon spot, the first two Pokemon are too weak.  I would make sure to have three energy cards on Leavanny then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Leaf Storm every turn.  The more grass Pokemon in your deck the better, because then Leaf Storm can heal more Pokemon.  You'll also want to find Pokemon that have low retreat costs so that you can easily retreat your damaged Pokemon out of the active Pokemon spot and then heal them with Leaf Storm.  I personally wouldn't use this line in a deck, but if you decide to, I would use 1 of each Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  I like that this card has a very low retreat cost and two moves, one being very good.  Unfortunately this above average card is the highest evolution of a pretty poor line of Pokemon in the Phantom Forces set, so I can't recommend using the line in a deck, I would give the entire line a 2 out of 5 rating, individually Sewaddle was a 2, Swadloon a 1, and Leavanny a 4.

It is a non-holo rare.You can use rare candy so you don't have to use Swadloon.

I saw you pulling a Leaveany from the Emerging Powers set when you opened the Super Snivy box.that card is good because it could do 180 damage per turn for only 3 energy cards.
