Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fearow from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set. Fearow is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Fearow does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Peck, for one colorless energy card this move does 30 damage. Fearow's second move is called Drill Run, this move requires four colorless energy cards to use and does 70 damage, plus you get to discard an energy card attached to your opponent's active Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fearow is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Spearow into play (I reviewed Spearow from this set yesterday) and then evolve Spearow into Fearow. If you read yesterday's review of Spearow, you'll know that I thought that card was an average Basic Pokemon card and could be used on its own, it has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and one move that was a little on the slow side but did do above average damage. So knowing this about Spearow and looking at this Fearow card, you could definitely use a 1-1 line of Spearow and Fearow in a deck, you could start the game with Spearow in the active Pokemon spot and evolve it after the first turn and use Peck or just keep Spearow in the active Pokemon spot in awhile and do 30 damage a turn with it. The advantage of using Fearow over Spearow is that Fearow can do the same amount of damage for one energy card less and it has 40 more HP. Drill Run is a good move, however, it does require quite a bit of energy and for a card that has 100 damage, that may be too many energy cards to use on it, but you can also choose to set this card up on the bench that way when you move it to the active Pokemon spot you can do 70 damage right away.
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 Roaring Skies set. This card has an above average HP, and two average to slightly above average moves. There really isn't anything that I dislike about this card, it just doesn't stand out that much to me. Together with Spearow from this set, I would give these two cards a 4 out of 5 rating, together they are definitely above average, especially since they can fit into any type deck.
