Scatterbug -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Scatterbug BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Scatterbug from the BREAKthrough set.  Scatterbug is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an HP of 30.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Scatterbug does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called String Shot, for one grass energy card this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Scatterbug's second move is called Tackle, for two energy cards, one each of colorless and grass, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Scatterbug is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Spewpa, and a Stage 2 evolution in Vivillon, which I'll be reviewing the next few days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Scatterbug does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, you would have to be scatter brained to want to use this card.  I say this play on words using Scatterbug's name because you never want to use a Pokemon with such a low HP in the active Pokemon spot, throw in the fact it has a x2 weakness to a very popular type and you might as well just let your opponent take a prize card and skip the hassle of playing Scatterbug.  Too bad Scatterbug's HP wasn't so low because the card does have two moves, both being decent, but you can't do much with a Pokemon that has the same HP as Magikarp.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, the low HP on this card makes this a pretty poor card to use from the BREAKthrough set and a card that I would recommend avoiding at almost all costs.  We'll see how good the rest of the Pokemon in this line are, but for now, stay away from this card.
