Carvanha -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Carvanha Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Carvanha from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Carvanha is a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Carvanha does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Bite, for one Water Energy card, this move does 10 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, this card is too limited to use, especially since it has a below average HP as well.  If you can put this card into the Active Pokemon spot for one turn before evolving it, it would be fine then, but if you can't evolve it, doing 10 damage a turn late in games won't do much good, plus a card with 50 HP late in games will quickly get knocked out.

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, because this card has a below average HP, and can only do a maximum of 10 damage per turn, it just isn't good enough to warrant use.  The one positive on this card is that it can attack for only one Energy card.  But again, without using Sharpedo in your deck, I would pass on using this card.
