Growlithe -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Growlithe Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Growlithe from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Growlithe is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Growlithe does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Take Down, which for three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, does 60 damage, however, the move also does 20 damage to Growlithe.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Growlithe is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Arcanine, 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, even though this card has a high HP and a powerful attack, I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  As a Basic Pokemon, it can't be used as a starter type Pokemon since it requires three energy cards to attack, and even if you spend the time to set up Growlithe on the bench, 60 damage for three energy cards is average at best, add in the fact Take Down does 20 damage to Growlithe, and its HP takes a huge hit.  So, if you're looking to play Arcanine in your deck, I would recommend either using a different Growlithe card, or completely setting up the line on the bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Arcanine, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card.  Even though Growlithe has an above average HP and a solid move, there really isn't a scenario where I could recommend using this card in a deck, and for that reason, I am giving this card my lowest rating.  There are much better Basic Pokemon out there to use, to attack quicker, and lots of Pokemon with much higher HP that can do the same amount of damage for the same amount of energy.
