Dragonair -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Dragonair Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragonair from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set.  Dragonair is a Stage 1, Dragon type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to Fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Dragonair does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dragon's Wish, for one Colorless Energy card this move allows you to attach any number of Energy cards from your hand to Dragonair during your next turn.  Dragonair's second move is called Tail Smack, for three Energy cards, one each of Grass, Lightning, and Colorless, this move does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dragonair is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Dratini into play (I reviewed Dratini from this set yesterday) and then evolve Dratini into Dragonair.  Dratini does have a Stage 2 evolution in Dragonite, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Dragonair is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Dratini, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon overall, at least on its own.  The card had a solid HP, and two moves, one that could get all three Pokemon in this family into your hand from your deck and the other could do 10 damage for one Energy card.  So knowing this about Dratini and looking at this Dragonair card, this is another card in this line that you'd only use in the Active Pokemon spot to set up Dragonite quicker.  So, if you plan on using Dratini and Dragonair without Dragonite, I would not recommend using the cards from this set.  Although Dragonair does do average damage with Tail Smack, because it requires three distinct types of Energy, I would look elsewhere.

Pokemon Card Rating:  
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Similarly to Dratini, if you're not using this card with Dragonite, it just isn't that good, since Dragonair's first move, Dragon's Wish, greatly helps Dragonite with its attack.  So together with Dratini from this set, I would give the first two Pokemon in this line a 2 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave each card individually.
