Swablu -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Swablu BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swablu from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Swablu is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Swablu does not have an Ability and only has one move called Bind Wound that for one colorless energy card heals 20 damage from one of your Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Swablu is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Altaria, which is not in this set, but most recently in the Roaring Skies set, you'll more than likely want to use Swablu with its Stage 1 evolution form, but because there isn't an Altaria in this set, I will review this card as if I was trying to use it on its own.  So, on its own, Swablu is a card you don't want to use, not only does it have a really low HP, but the only move that this card benefits your Pokemon later in games when Pokemon have damage on them, however, with a low HP, there is no chance this card will last long later in games, you can consider this card knocked out in one turn.  So, there is really not a scenario where I would recommend using Swablu in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Altaria, this is a card you need to stay away from, not only does this card have a really low HP, this card cannot do any damage on the attack, and if used as a starter type Pokemon, probably can't do anything since your benched Pokemon won't have any damage on them.  So look elsewhere for Basic, colorless type Pokemon to use in your deck.
