Spearow -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Spearow Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spearow from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Spearow is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Spearow does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Peck Bugs, for one Colorless Energy this move does 10 damage, plus 30 more damage if your opponent's Active Pokemon is a Grass type Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spearow is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Fearow, 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, this card could certainly be used as a starter type Pokemon in almost every type deck out there, since it can attack for only one Colorless Energy card.  You could also just keep one of these in a deck, put one Energy card on it on the Bench, and then if your opponent is using a Grass type Pokemon move Spearow to the Active Pokemon spot and do 40 damage for only one Energy card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Fearow, this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Other than being limited by only having one move, this card has a low retreat cost, solid HP, and a move that can do up to 40 damage for one Colorless Energy card, so it is definitely worth consideration when deck building.
