Serperior -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Serperior Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Serperior from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Serperior is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Serperior does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Coil, for one colorless energy card this move does 40 damage, plus it makes Serperior's moves during its next turn do 60 more damage.  Serperior's second move is called Slashing Strike and for one grass energy card this move does 80 damage, however you can't use this move twice in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Serperior is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Snivy into play and then evolve it into Servine before you can evolve Servine into Serperior, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought Snivy was an average Basic Pokemon with a good attack and solid HP, it was just limited in what it could do, and I thought that Servine was a below average Stage 1 Pokemon because it had such a low HP and only one move and I recommended you either use Snivy on its own or use this full line.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this family and looking at Serperior the first thing that you'll notice is that this card has two really quick moves, just like the other two Pokemon in this line, so if you do decide to play this line in a deck, you won't have to dedicate much energy to it.  I would say if you're building a grass type deck, to use a 1-1-1 line of this family and either get Snivy in the active Pokemon spot to start the game or set up the entire line on the bench.  Of course, Serperior is mainly an attacker, so when in the active Pokemon spot you'll want to use Coil the first turn and Slashing Strike the next to do 180 damage in two turns.  Because this card can do a good amount of damage, you'll want to find ways to increase Serperior's HP so it can last longer in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  Other than being a Stage 2 card, so it takes awhile to set up, this card is very good since it has two great moves, both requiring little energy and both doing a good amount of damage.  There isn't much strategy with this card since it just has attacks, but this entire line would make a good addition to most grass type decks out there, altogether I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating.
