Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spewpa from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card set. Spewpa is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Spewpa does not have an Ability or Ancient Trait but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Protect, for one grass energy card this move prevents all effects of an attack done to Spewpa during your opponent's next turn if you get a heads when flipping a coin. Spewpa's second move is called Tackle, for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 30 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spewpa is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Scatterbug into play (I reviewed Scatterbug from this set yesterday) and then evolve Scatterbug into Spewpa. Spewpa does have a Stage 2 evolution in Vivillon, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Spewpa is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my review of Scatterbug, you'll know that I thought that card was very poor and basically unusable in play, mainly because it had such a low HP. Other than the low HP, which was 30, the card was decent in that it had two moves and could do 20 damage total. But because it has such a low HP, you're never going to want to put that card into the active Pokemon spot. So knowing this about Scatterbug and looking at this Spewpa card, this card is pretty similar to Scatterbug in that it has two decent moves, but the HP on the card is really low, in this case 70 is really low for a Stage 1 when most have 90 or more. So far, I would not recommend using either of the first two Pokemon in this line for a deck, depending on what Vivillon looks like tomorrow, you may want to avoid this entire line. If you are using this card with Vivillon and have to put this card into the active Pokemon spot, I would try to just stall and get lucky by using Protect every turn. Other than that, there is no reason to use this card in a deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very poor Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set. Besides having a very low HP for a Stage 1 Pokemon card, this card can't attack for one energy card and its first move is based on a coin flip, so there really is no merit in using this card in a deck. Together with Spewpa from this deck, I would give them a combined 1 out of 5 rating, both cards are very poor.
