Meowstic -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Meowstic Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Meowstic from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Meowstic is a Stage 1, Psychic type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Allure, for one Psychic Energy card, this move lets you draw 3 cards.  The second move on this card is called Hand Kinesis, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 10 damage for each card in your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Meowstic is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Espurr into play (I reviewed Espurr from this set yesterday) and then evolve Espurr into Meowstic.  If you read yesterday's review of Espurr, you'll know I thought it was a below average card overall.  It was a fairly intriguing card, since its one move made it so the defending Pokemon was weak to Psychic type Pokemon until the end of your next turn.  Other than that, this card was very limited, with just the one move, and 60 HP.  Knowing this about Espurr and looking at this Meowstic card, this card is intriguing as well, ideally, you would use either Professor Sycamore or N before using Allure, then use Hand Kinesis the following turn, to do a good amount of damage, but with the popularity of N, your opponent can easily reduce the size of your hand after using Allure, and later in games, if you've taken some Prize cards, N will really hurt Hand Kinesis' attack power.  So while Meowstic is intriguing, I would stick with my originally strategy of just using Espurr, using its move to make the defending Pokemon weak to Psychic type Pokemon, then use Guzma or retreat Espurr the next turn and bring in a big hitting Psychic type Pokemon.

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 Burning Shadows set.  Like I stated above, although this card has some intrigue with it, since it can potentially do major damage for only one Double Colorless Energy card, overall, I think this card just isn't that great, and I would pass on using this card or line in a deck.  Together with Espurr from this set, I would give both cards a 2 out of 5 rating.
