Grubbin -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Grubbin Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Grubbin from the Sun and Moon set.  Grubbin is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Grubbin does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Vice Grip, for two colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Grubbin is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Charjabug, and a Stage 2 evolution in Vikavolt, which I'll be reviewing in the next few weeks, 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 Grubbin does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, the only time I would use this card is if you're building a deck that has 4 Double Colorless energy cards in it, that way you could try and use Grubbin as a starter type Pokemon and do 20 damage the first turn for only one energy card.  Another reason you may consider using this card is if you're building a lightning type deck and want a Pokemon with a different weakness type, since both of the two evolution forms of Grubbin are lightning type Pokemon in this set.  But, overall, this card is slower on the attack and has a high retreat cost, so like I mentioned, unless you're using a full line of Double Colorless energy, I would pass on using this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  This card does have some positives on it, likes its HP, and the fact it requires only colorless energy cards to attack, but with only one move, which requires two energy cards, and a high retreat cost, there are much better cards out there to use in a grass type deck.
