Mew -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Mew XY Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mew from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Mew is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 40.  Mew has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mew has an Ability called Neutral Shield that says all effects of attacks, including damage, are prevented from this Pokemon if being attacked by Evolution Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Mew just has one move called Psy Bolt, for two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic, this move does 30 damage, plus, if you get a heads when flipping a coin, this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mew is a basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Mew.  So knowing this, usually with Basic Pokemon like Mew, you'll want to try and use this card as a starter type Pokemon for your deck, however, even though it has an extremely low HP, the strategy with this card would be to get two energy cards on it and keep it on the bench, moving it into the active Pokemon spot only when facing Stage 1 or Stage 2 cards, thus, preventing your opponent from attacking.  The only real downfall with this card is its extremely low HP, all your opponent has to do is switch out their active Pokemon for a Basic evolution and they can start attacking Mew right away, and with only 40 HP, it is really easy to get knocked out in one turn.  So while I really like Mew's Ability, unless you like to play with fire, and aren't too worried about getting knocked out by playing a card with only 40 HP, I would definitely not use more than 1 of these cards in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall from the XY Evolutions set.  Despite the extremely low HP and the fact that Mew can't attack for only one energy card, this card still gets an average rating from me because of its Ability, plus if you set this card up on the bench, it may prevent your opponent from using many of their evolution cards at all.  So if you're looking for some strategy with a card, I would recommend taking a look at this Mew card for your deck.
