Granbull -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Granbull Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Granbull from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Granbull is a Stage 1, Fairy type Pokemon card, with a HP of 110. It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Darkness type Pokemon, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Granbull does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  This card's first move is called Dark Clamp, for one Fairy Energy card, this move does 30 damage, plus it makes the defending Pokemon unable to retreat during your opponent's next turn.  Granbull's second move is called Fight Back, for three Energy cards, one Fairy and two Colorless, this move does 50 damage plus 80 more damage if Granbull has any damage counters on it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Granbull is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Snubbull into play (I reviewed Snubbull from this set yesterday) and then evolve Snubbull into Granbull.  If you read yesterday's review of Snubbull, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall, it did have an above average HP and could do 20 damage for only one Energy card, but it was limited in that it only had the one move, and the one move it did have could do damage to Snubbull when attacking.  So knowing this about Snubbull and looking at this Granbull card, it would actually make sense to try and use Snubbull as a starter type Pokemon in a deck, using its Reckless Charge move, doing 20 damage, and if you flip a tails and have to do 10 damage to Snubbull, when you evolve it into Granbull, Granbull's Fight Back move will do 130 damage instead of 50.  This Granbull card would also make sense to use in a deck which features a powerful attacker that may end up doing damage to all Pokemon in play, this Pokemon would again, make Fight Back do 130 damage instead of 50.  So, if you're building a Fairy type deck, or just looking for a powerful attacker, I would recommend giving this Granbull card a look.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Other than when attacking without damage on it, Granbull is a very solid Stage 1 Pokemon card overall, that can do up to 130 damage a turn for only three Energy cards.  Pair this card with Snubbull from the set, and I really like this line overall, I would give both cards in this line a 4 out of 5 rating, they work very well together.
