Paras -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Paras Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Paras from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Paras is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Paras does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Scratch, for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Paras is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Parasect, 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, since this is a Basic Pokemon card, you're going to have to look at this card as a a starter type Pokemon for a deck.  As a starter type Pokemon, you're going to want a card that can attack quickly, which isn't the case with Paras.  Other than a quick attack, a starter type Pokemon should have at least 60 HP and a low retreat cost, which Paras has.  So overall, this card could be used as a starter type Pokemon in a grass type deck, but because it only has the one move, it is limited in what it can do, and you'll have to be okay with doing nothing during Paras' first turn, unless you're setting Paras up on the bench.  So while I wouldn't highly recommend using this card since it can't attack that quickly, if you're desperate for a Basic Pokemon, this card could fit that bill, since it can do a fair amount of damage when attacking, but there are definitely better cards out there to use.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Parasect, this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card overall from the Sun and Moon Pokemon card set.  Like I mentioned above, although this card is a little slower on the attack, it is still good overall, since it can do 30 damage per turn with its second attack, it has a solid HP, and a low retreat cost.  So again, while I would look for a card that can attack for one energy card, this one is definitely not the worst one out there overall.

Level 24! One of the reasons I never found myself using it in-game, besides being 4x weak to at least two types.
