Mew -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Mew Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mew from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Mew is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50, it has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a free retreat cost.  Mew's Ability is called Memories of Dawn and says that Mew can use the attacks of any of your Basic Pokemon in play, if Mew has the necessary energy to attack.  Besides the Ability, Mew has just one move called Encounter, that requires one colorless energy card to use, and allows you to search your deck for a Pokemon, reveal it, and put it into your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mew is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, the strategy with this card is to get a fair amount of energy on Mew while it is on the bench, and then just get the Pokemon that have good moves on them on your bench, but you don't need to get them set up, that way, you can move Mew in and out of the active Pokemon spot for free, using your benched Pokemon's attacks.  The only downfall with this strategy is that Mew has a really low HP, so you're going to have to heal it quite a bit or work on a way to improve its HP.  Encounter works well with Mew's Ability since you can get a Pokemon you want from your deck to put on your bench so Mew can use its move.  Although very interesting the strategy you can take with this card, I would be somewhat leery of using more than one of these cards in a deck just because it has such a low HP and could easily be knocked out in one move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  Although this card has a free retreat cost, a great Ability, and a move that works well with its Ability, this card is average at best just because of how low of an HP it has plus the fact this card really depends on the other cards you have in play, and if Mew is your last Pokemon in play, it can't attack at all!
