Sableye -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Sableye Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sableye from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Sableye is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, this card does not have a weakness or resistance and it has a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sableye does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bewitching Eyes, for one darkness energy card, this move allows you to choose a supporter card from your opponent's discard pile and use it as the effect of this attack.  Sableye's second move is called Furtive Drop, for two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, this move puts 3 damage counters on your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sableye is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  Mainly because there really isn't anything that stands out about this card.  Other than having an above average HP, neither move this card has is that great, and the first move, Bewitching Eyes, could easily be replaced by just having more supporter cards in your own deck.  This card would have been usable if Furtive Drop would allow you to place 3 damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way you like, but it has to attack the Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot.  So unless you're a huge fan of Sableye, do not use this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  This card is good in that it has a high HP, low retreat cost, and two moves.  However, this card can't do any damage unless you put two energy cards on it, and even then, the damage it does is pretty average.  So definitely not the worst card in the world, this card shouldn't be forced into your deck, look elsewhere.
