Poliwag -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Poliwag Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Poliwag from the Sun and Moon set.  Poliwag is a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Poliwag does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Water Gun, for one Water Energy card this move does 10 damage.  Poliwag's second move is called Hydro Pump, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each Water Energy card attached to Poliwag.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Poliwag is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Poliwhirl, and two Stage 2 evolution forms in Poliwrath and Politoed, 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 (Politoed is not in the Sun and Moon set), I will just act like Poliwag does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card could certainly be used as a starter type Pokemon in a Water type deck, since it has a solid HP and a move that requires only one Water Energy card to use.  Even though Hydro Pump can do up to 60 damage a turn, I would not recommend using this move unless you plan on evolving Poliwag, because putting three Energy cards on a Pokemon with only 60 HP is pretty risky.  So overall, although this card could definitely be used in a deck on its own, I would probably look elsewhere.

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, I like that this card has a solid HP, and two moves, one that is fast attacking and one that can do more damage but is slower to use.  If not using with Poliwhirl, I would rather use a card with a higher HP that doesn't evolve and that can do more than 10 damage for only one Energy card.
