Clefairy -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Clefairy XY Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Clefairy from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Clefairy is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with a HP of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Clefairy does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Sing, for one colorless energy card this move puts the defending Pokemon to sleep if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Clefairy's second move is called Metronome, for three colorless energy cards, this move allows you to use one of your opponent's Active Pokemon's attacks and use it as Clefairy's attack.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Clefairy is a Basic evolution Pokemon with a Stage 1 evolution in Clefable, it is always a good idea to use the full line together, however, there isn't a Clefable in this set, since there wasn't one in the Base Set, but it first appeared in the Jungle set.  Because of this, I will be reviewing Clefairy on its own, but the newest set to feature Clefable would be BREAKpoint.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using Clefairy in a deck, the main reason for this is its low HP, because of how low the HP is, you can really only use this card the first turn in the game, if used later in the game, it is pretty much guaranteed for a one hit knock out.  If you do decide to use Clefairy in the active Pokemon spot, attaching a Trick Coin Pokemon Tool card to Clefairy would give you a better chance at putting the defending Pokemon to sleep when using Sing.  Metronome would be a great move if Clefairy had a higher HP, but the move is too slow to be that great, the only way you could use it would be to set up Clefairy on the bench and when the defending Pokemon has a high attack that would knock itself out, you could put Clefairy into the active Pokemon spot and use Metronome, just know, Clefairy will more than likely be knocked out the next turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Clefable, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card, all due to its low HP.  Other than that, I do like the fact Clefable has two moves, one that can inflict a special condition and the other that can do some major damage when facing a powerful Pokemon.  But, without using Clefable in your deck, I would not recommend using Clefairy on its own.
