Swablu -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Swablu Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swablu from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Swablu is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Spearow does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Bind Wound, and for one colorless energy card this move heals 20 damage from one of your Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Swablu is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Altaria, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using this card without Altaria, mainly because this card can easily be replaced by a trainer card like Potion, that way you don't have to waste an energy card on Swablu and you don't have to worry about getting this Pokemon knocked out.  So as far as strategy, don't even strategize about this card, it just isn't that great, having too low of an HP and a very poor move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Altaria, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card and one that I would not recommend using in a deck or on its own.  It has too low of an HP and the one move it has can be replaced by a trainer card making this card easily replaceable in a deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Swablu from the Roaring Skies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Swablu's stage 1 evolution Altaria, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

The answer to the quiz is: False.
I know this because I once bought an English Expansion Pack and it came with many Pokémon but one of them was a water-type Swablu. The Expansion Pack I opened was the "EX Dragon Frontiers" Expansion Pack (English). I really hope I win! (I have also subscribed with my two accounts: "Matthew Nguyen" and "EnDaMeN28")
