Ribombee -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Ribombee Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ribombee from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Ribombee is a Stage 1, Fairy type Pokemon card, with a HP of 60. It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Darkness type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Ribombee's Ability is called Curative Pollen and says that once per turn you may heal 20 damage from one of your Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Ribombee's only move is called Fairy Wind, for one Fairy type Energy card this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ribombee is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Cutiefly into play (I reviewed Cutiefly from this set yesterday) and then evolve Cutiefly into Ribombee.  If you read yesterday's review of Cutiefly, you'll know that I thought it was a well below average Basic Pokemon overall, mainly due to its low HP, plus it only had one move that did a maximum of 10 damage.  So knowing this about Cutiefly and looking at this Ribombee card, this card also has an extremely low HP, especially for a Stage 1 Pokemon.  However, despite its low HP, this card can and should be used in many decks out there, mainly for its Ability, you can use a 1-1 line of this family in your deck and use Curative Pollen from the deck, healing 20 damage from one of your Pokemon each turn.  I wouldn't recommend putting Ribombee in the Active Pokemon spot because of its low HP, but the one move it does have, Fairy Wind, does do a fair amount of damage for only one Energy card.

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.  Despite having a really low HP, one that is average on most Basic Pokemon cards, this card should be used in decks to help heal damage from your Pokemon while sitting on your Bench.  So, combined with Cutiefly from this set, I would still give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, all because I think Ribombee's Ability is that good.
