Caterpie -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Caterpie Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Caterpie from the Sun and Moon set.  This is the first card in the Sun and Moon set.  Caterpie is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Caterpie does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Nap, for one colorless energy card this move heals 20 damage from Caterpie.  Caterpie's second move is called Gnaw, for two colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Caterpie is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Metapod, and a Stage 2 evolution in Butterfree, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Caterpie does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card would be solid overall if it didn't have a below average HP, plus add in the fact that you need two energy cards on this card to do damage when attacking and this card is below average.  I do like that both of Caterpie's moves require colorless type energy cards meaning this card could be used in any type deck and potentially could only need 1 Double Colorless energy card to use either of its moves.  Ideally, you should pass on using this card on its own in a deck, but if you have to play it in your deck, use whichever move you have the necessary energy cards for and try and evolve it as quickly as possible.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon Pokemon card set.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, with a below average HP and a slow attacking move, this card isn't that good of a Basic Pokemon card overall, it does have some positives, like having two moves and requiring colorless energy cards for both moves, but I would recommend either using a different grass type Basic Pokemon in your deck, or using the full line of this evolution in your deck.
