Alolan Meowth -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Alolan Meowth Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Alolan Meowth from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Alolan Meowth is a Basic, Darkness type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Alolan Meowth does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Fury Swipes, this move, which requires zero Energy, does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when flipping 3 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Alolan Meowth is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Alolan Persian, 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.  The first thing to remember is that this is an Alolan Pokemon, so you have to use this card with Alolan Persian.  Secondly, because this card doesn't require any Energy to attack, it can fit into any deck, and would make a perfect starter type Pokemon since it can attack so quickly, and has the potential to do a fair amount of damage.  So, ideally, you could put up to four of these in a deck, and if you're using Trick Coin Trainer cards, that would make this card even better because you get two shots at getting as many heads as possible with 3 coin flips.  I thought Alolan Rattata from this set was average, and that card had a very low HP, whereas this card is actually above average HP wise.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Alolan Persian, this is an average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I stated above, I really like how this card doesn't require any Energy to attack, allowing you plenty of time to set up your Benched Pokemon while doing up to 30 damage per turn with Fury Swipes.  This is an excellent start to the Alolan Persian line, which I'll be looking at in total tomorrow.
