Dratini -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Dratini Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dratini from the Sun and Moon set.  Dratini is a Basic, Dragon type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Dratini does not have an Ability but the card does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Signs of Evolution, for one Grass Energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite, and put them into your hand.  Dratini's second move is called Tail Smack, for one Lightning Energy card this move does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dratini is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Dragonair, and a Stage 2 evolution in Dragonite, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Dratini does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card isn't one to use in a deck, even though it can do 10 damage for one Lightning Energy card, because its retreat cost is higher than its attack, I would pass on using the card.  Ideally, this card is a great card to play early in the game, that way you can use Signs of Evolution and get the remaining Pokemon for this line into your hand, and evolve the line into Dragonite quite quickly, so this card really only makes sense to play if you're using at least one of Dratini's evolution forms.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Although this card is below average on its own, it is solid overall if using with Dragonair and Dragonite, since it can do damage and get those Pokemon into your hand.  Otherwise, on its own, a card with 1 move that does 10 damage is pretty limited, so there are much better cards out there to use.
