Meowth -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Meowth Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Meowth from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Meowth is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  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 but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Stall, for one colorless energy card this move, this move allows you to discard an energy attached to one of your opponent's Pokemon, however, this move can only be used during your first turn and only if you go second.  Meowth's second move is called Scratch, for two colorless energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Meowth is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Persian, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  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, unless you have a set of 4 Double Colorless energy cards in your deck, I would pass on using this card.  If you are using Double Colorless energy, you could use this card as a starter type Pokemon and do 20 damage your first turn.  Stall doesn't do much for me, outside of only being able to use it your first turn of the game, it still only has a 50% chance of being able to be used, plus your opponent may not have any energy on their Pokemon anyway.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Persian, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card.  There is really nothing terrible about this card, it has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and two moves, but this card is somewhat slow on the attack and there are just better Basic Pokemon cards out there to use.
