Meowstic -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Meowstic BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Meowstic from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Meowstic is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Meowstic does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Energy Present, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to attach up to two energy cards from your hand to one of your benched Pokemon.  Psyshot is Meowstic's second move and for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, this move does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Meowstic is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Espurr into play (I reviewed Espurr from this set yesterday) and then evolve Espurr into Meowstic.  If you read yesterday's review of Espurr, you'll know that I thought that card was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card, it was solid overall with a good HP, quick move, and low retreat cost, it was just limited in that it only had the one move which could do 10 damage.  So knowing this about Espurr and looking at this Meowstic card, since both are quick attacking, it would make most sense to try and start the game with Espurr in the active Pokemon spot and then evolve it into Meowstic right away to be able to set up your benched Pokemon with Energy Present.  Then, if you're still facing a weaker Pokemon after using that move a couple of times, you could use Psyshot a couple of turns, or just retreat Meowstic for a Pokemon that is set up on the bench.  So, if building a psychic type deck, I would consider using a 1-1 line of this lot and using Energy Present on Meowstic to quickly get energy cards on your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  There really are not any downsides to this card, it has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and two good moves, one move that attacks, another move that sets up your benched Pokemon.  So like I said above, if you're building a deck, this line is worth a look, combined I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating.

I wish some of these card were playable, sometimes i think that the pokemon company puts no real thought in most of the cards, and so, we never see pokemon like these being played at all, sorry for the rant, but i just love Espurr and Meowsticm i know they are far from the top pokemon but i'd love to actually put them on a deck :(
