Alolan Persian -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Alolan Persian Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Alolan Persian from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Alolan Persian is a Stage 1, Darkness type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Alolan Persian does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Taunt, for zero Energy cards, this move allows you to switch one of your opponent's Benched Pokemon with their Active one.  Alolan Persian's second move is called Claw Rend, for one Darkness Energy card this move does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if the Defending Pokemon had damage on it previously.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Alolan Persian is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Alolan Meowth into play (I reviewed Alolan Meowth from this set yesterday) and then evolve Alolan Meowth into Alolan Persian.  If you read yesterday's review of Alolan Meowth you'll know that I thought that card was average overall.  Despite only having one move, I thought Alolan Meowth was average overall because it had an above average HP, and could do up to 30 damage per turn without using any Energy cards.  So, you could either use Alolan Meowth as a starter type Pokemon and evolve it into Alolan Persian, or, the strategy I would recommend would be to use this card in a spread attack type deck, spread damage around first before playing Alolan Persian, then, for only one Energy card, Claw Rend should be able to do 60 damage every turn since damage has already been spread around.  I do like the combination of moves on Alolan Persian, they work well together.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  This card works really well in a spread attack type deck, yet the combination of Alolan Meowth and Alolan Persian, should work well in almost any deck out there that has a few Darkness type Energy cards in it.  Together with Alolan Meowth, I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, it is one worth considering.
