Fearow -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Fearow Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fearow from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Fearow is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Fearow does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  This card's first move is called Devastating Wind, for one Colorless Energy card this move makes your opponent shuffle their hand into their deck and draw three new cards.  Fearow's second move is called Slashing Strike, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 60 damage, however this move can't be used 2 turns in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fearow is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Spearow into play (I reviewed Spearow from this set yesterday) and then evolve Spearow into Fearow.  If you read yesterday's review of Spearow, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card overall, it had a solid move, a low retreat cost, and although it only had one move, this move could do up to 40 damage per turn for only 1 Energy card.  So knowing this about Spearow and looking at this Fearow card, you could put this line into a deck that features a way to freely move Pokemon into and out of the Active Pokemon spot, that way you could use Slashing Strike every other turn and do 60 damage for only one Colorless Energy card.  Although I wish Devastating Wind was on a Basic Pokemon card, this move could ruin your opponent's strategy, especially early in games.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  The only real downside to this card is that it can only do damage when attacking every other turn, otherwise, this card has a solid HP, both moves it has can be used quickly, and it has a low retreat cost.  Overall, this line of Spearow and Fearow is solid, I would give the two cards a combined 3 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave each card individually.
