Clefairy -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Clefairy Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Clefairy from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Clefairy is a Basic, Fairy type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Darkness type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Clefairy does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Slap, for one Fairy Energy card this move does 10 damage.  For two Colorless Energy cards, Follow Me, allows you to switch your opponent's Active Pokemon with one of their Benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Clefairy is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Clefable, 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, if you're building a Fairy type deck or a spread attack type deck, this card has some use.  Slap is a decent move to start the game with, since it can attack for one Energy card and do damage every turn.  Although limited later in games, it is an okay move at the start of games.  Follow Me is the main reason you'd use this card in a spread attack type deck, you would move Clefairy in and out of the Active Pokemon spot using Follow Me every turn, potentially setting up a weak Pokemon in your opponent's Active Pokemon spot so you can knock it out during your next turn with a more powerful Pokemon you have set up on your Bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Clefable, this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  I like this card because there are a couple of different strategies this card could be used with, both as a starter and a card in a spread attack type deck.  This card has a low retreat cost and solid HP, so it is worth considering when deck building.
