Meowth -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Meowth BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Meowth from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Meowth is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Meowth does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This move is called Exhausted Tackle, for one colorless energy card this move does 30 damage to either the defending Pokemon or Meowth depending on if you get a heads or tails respectively.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Meowth is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Persian, with the most recent Persian card being in the Ancient Origins and Generations sets, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon, so you'll have to go back and read my review of Persian from Ancient Origins.  In this section, I will only be looking at Meowth on its own.  So on its own, there is no way you want to use this card in a deck, yes it can do major damage for only one energy card, and it warrants a look if you attach a Trick Coin trainer to this card giving you two chances at getting a heads when using Exhausted Tackle, but it is awfully risky to do 30 damage to Meowth and knock itself out in two turns.  So unless you like lots of risk, I would look elsewhere for a Basic Pokemon to use in any type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Persian, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card, one that does have an average HP, low retreat cost, and potential to do above average damage every turn.  But because this card has the potential to do 30 damage to Meowth a turn, I cannot recommend using this card in a deck.
