Swampert 35/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Swampert Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swampert from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Swampert cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Swampert is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Swampert does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Water Arrow, for three energy cards, two colorless and one water, this move does 60 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon.  Swampert's second move is called Waterfall, this move requires four energy cards to use, two each of colorless and water, and does 120 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Swampert is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Mudkip into play and then evolve it into Marshtomp before you can evolve Marshtomp into Swampert, 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 Mudkip was an above average Basic Pokemon card that would work well on its own, but Marshtomp was better than an average Stage 1 card.  So knowing this about those two Pokemon, and knowing there is another Swampert card from this set, looking at this specific Swampert card, I would highly recommend using this card in a water type deck and potentially building a deck around this line.  I say this because Swampert has two very powerful moves, the first one could be better utilized in a spread damage type deck and the second move is just a powerful move that will be able to knock out many Pokemon in just one turn.  So to best use this Swampert card, I would try and set up the entire line on the bench, get four energy cards on Swampert and then move it to the active Pokemon spot and then use Waterfall every turn.  You could also use this card in a spread damage type deck, leaving this card on your bench with four energy cards on it, you could use a move that does 10 or 20 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon, then you could use Water Arrow to knock out a specifically weak Pokemon on your opponent's bench.  I would recommend using a 3-2-2 line of these Pokemon family.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card is just a very powerful Stage 2 Pokemon card and is worth the wait evolving Mudkip into Marshtomp and Marshtomp into Swampert.  Even though all this card can do is do damage, it can do major damage with the moves it has.  I like how this card can either choose to attack a benched Pokemon doing average damage or the defending Pokemon and do well above average damage.  Combined, Mudkid, Marshtomp, and this Swampert card would get a 4 out of 5 rating from me, I am a big fan of this family, and would recommend using it in a deck.
