Snubbull -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Snubbull BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Snubbull from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Snubbull is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Snubbull does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Roar, for one colorless energy card this move makes your opponent switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched ones.  Snubbull's second move is called Bite and for three energy cards, two colorless and one fairy, does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Snubbull is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Granbull, 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 cannot recommend using this card in a deck, mainly because it takes three energy cards to do any damage, and then it does well below average damage for that amount of energy cards.  Roar would be an okay move if you could choose which Pokemon your opponent had to put into play, but it may actually help your opponent more than hurt them by having Snubbull use Roar.  So unless you're using Granbull with this card, do not use Snubbull.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Granbull, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I really should have given this card a 1 out of 5 rating, but because this card does have an above average HP and two moves, I am still giving it a 2 out of 5 rating, but like I said above, I would not recommend using this card in a deck on its own, mainly because it is too slow, under-powered, and just not that great overall.
