Zubat -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Zubat Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zubat from the Sun and Moon set.  Zubat is a Basic, Psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Zubat does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Astonish.  This move allows you to choose a random card from your opponent's hand, have them show it to you, and then have them put that card into their deck, shuffling the deck afterwards.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zubat is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Golbat, and a Stage 2 evolution in Crobat, 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 Zubat does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, because this card has a below average HP, and cannot do any damage when attacking, if you do want to use Astonish in a deck, only use one of these Zubat cards in the deck, and use a Trainer card or some other Ability to get to Zubat quickly.  Astonish can do two things, the first is it lets you see what cards your opponent has in their hand, and the second is that it may disrupt their strategy if the random card chosen is one needed by your opponent.  While I personally wouldn't play this card in a deck, it does have some potential, if previewing the opponent's hand is an advantage for your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Besides having a low HP, this card only has one move, making it very limited, plus the only move it does have can't do any damage.  So again, unless previewing your opponent's hand gives your deck an advantage, look elsewhere for a Basic, Psychic type Pokemon for your deck.
