Meowth -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Meowth Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Meowth from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Meowth is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  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 called Turmoil Strike.  For two colorless energy cards, this move does 50 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon that has damage counters on it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Meowth is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Persian, which isn't in the Fates Collide set but is in the Steam Siege set, you'll more than likely want to use Persian with this card.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, the only scenario where you'll want to use this card is in a spread attack type deck where you have a Pokemon that does 10 or 20 damage to all of your opponent's benched Pokemon, that way if you move Meowth into the active Pokemon spot it has the chance to attack any of your opponent's Pokemon since they all have damage on them.  That is really the only scenario you can actually play this card, this card can't be used as a starter type Pokemon, number one because it is slower on the attack, and number two because this card can't attack a Pokemon unless it has damage on it already.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card unless you're using it in a spread attack type deck.  Even though this card is pretty unusable, I am still giving this card not my lowest rating just because it does have a solid HP, can be used in any type deck, and has a low retreat cost.  So overall, like I said a couple of times, do not use unless you plan on using Persian or you're using a spread attack type deck.
