Sableye -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Sableye Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sableye from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Sableye is a Basic, Darkness type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  Sableye does not have a Weakness or Resistance, but it does have a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Sableye does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Limitation, for one Darkness Energy card, this move makes it so your opponent is unable to play a Supporter card during their next turn.  Scratch is the name of Sableye's second move, for one Colorless Energy card, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sableye is a Basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Sableye.  So knowing this, this card makes for an excellent starter type Pokemon, both in a Darkness type deck, or any type deck if you're fine with just using Scratch every turn.  I like this card as a starter type Pokemon because both of its moves requires little Energy to attack, and you can potentially ruin your opponent strategy if you prevent them from using a Supporter card each turn, while giving your own Benched Pokemon time to be set up.  So this card works as both a defensive type starter as well as a quick attacking starter type Pokemon that can do a fair amount of damage every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  So, in my opinion, this is an above average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Despite only doing 20 damage per turn, I still think this card is one to consider when deck building.  Knowing the important of Supporter cards in the TCG, Limitation can be very effective.  Mainly, I like that this card can limit your opponent as well as do above average damage when attacking.
