Rowlet -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Rowlet Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rowlet from the Sun and Moon set.  This is actually the first 7th generation Pokemon I've reviewed in the Sun and Moon set.  Rowlet 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.  Rowlet does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Rowlet's second move is called Leafage and for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rowlet is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Dartrix, and a Stage 2 evolution in Decidueye, 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 Rowlet does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card would be a perfect starter type Pokemon to use in a grass type deck, or a card to put into the active Pokemon spot and evolve it while in that spot.  Overall, Rowlet really doesn't have any negatives to it, it has a solid HP, two moves, and a low retreat cost.  I guess, late in games, this card won't be too effective, only doing 20 damage a turn, but I could definitely see using 1 or 2 of these in a deck in the hopes of starting your game off with Rowlet in the active Pokemon spot, doing 10 damage the first turn and 20 damage after that per turn until you get one of your benched Pokemon set up.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I mentioned above, other than doing a maximum of 20 damage per turn, this card is very solid, with two moves, both quick on the attack, an average HP, and a low retreat cost.  So, if you're building a grass type deck, this card should definitely be considered, and if you're using the full line of Rowlet, this card is a good start to it.
