Crabrawler -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Crabrawler Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Crabrawler from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Crabrawler is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Crabrawler does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Crabrawler's first move is called Punch, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage.  Crabhammer is the second move that this card has it does 40 damage for three Energy cards, two Colorless and one Fighting.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Crabrawler is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Crabominable, which I reviewed from this set previously, since it is a Water type Pokemon, I can summarize the two cards at the end of this section.  Looking at Crabrawler on its own, even though it has an above average HP and two moves, I wouldn't use it as a starter type Pokemon because it is slower on the attack, unless you're using a Double Colorless Energy card, plus its Crabhammer move does well below average damage for the amount of Energy required.  Because of this, and knowing that Crabominable from this set required Water type Energy cards to attack, and is slow on the attack.  I would again, recommend this entire line as a whole, but would set up the line on the Bench, therefore never moving Crabrawler to the active Pokemon spot.  Crabominable can both do major damage and spread damage around with its moves, so I would recommend this line for a Water type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Crabominable, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card, like I mentioned above, this card has a good HP but its retreat cost is fairly high and it is slow to set up.  Combined with Crabominable from this set, which I gave a 4 out of 5 rating, I would give these two Pokemon combined that same 4 rating, I think Crabominable is that good and is worth using in a spread attack type deck.
