Meowth -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Meowth Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Meowth from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Meowth is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Fake Out, for one Colorless Energy card, this move does 10 damage, plus, if you get a heads when flipping a coin, the defending Pokemon is Paralyzed.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Meowth is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Persian, 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, you never really want to use anything with such a low HP and a low attack.  But, if you are building a Colorless type deck or if you're using Persian in your deck, this is a very good card to use, since it can attack for one Energy, and if used early in games, can prevent your opponent from attacking, giving you more time to get your Benched Pokemon set up.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Persian, this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Burning Shadows set.  Like I mentioned above, this card shouldn't be used on its own often, but as a Basic Pokemon that has a Stage 1 evolution, this is certainly a solid one, with an average HP, and a move that both does damage and has the potential to inflict a Special Condition.
