Carvanha -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Carvanha Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Carvanha from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Carvanha is a Basic, Darkness type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Carvanha does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Gnaw Through, for one Colorless Energy card this move allows you to discard all Pokemon Tool cards from your opponent's Active Pokemon.  Carvanha's second move is called Bite, for two Energy cards, one each of Darkness and Colorless, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Carvanha is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Sharpedo, 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.  So, on its own, unless you're sure your opponent is going to be using a lot of Tool cards on their Active Pokemon, I would probably pass on using this card.  Carvanha does have an above average HP, a low retreat cost, and Bite does do average damage, but for a starter type Pokemon like this card should be, you want to be able to attack and do damage for only one Energy card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Sharpedo, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I mentioned above, this card does have some positive things going for it, it has two moves, a low retreat cost, and a solid HP, but unless you specifically need something to discard Tool cards, look elsewhere for a Basic, Darkness type Pokemon to use in a deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
