    Cards like pokemon catcher, raikou, and other snipe cards are the reason why it's better to keep a pokemon in your hand until you need to play it. If you are playing a stage 1 or 2 pokemon deck, you need to get them down in the first or second turn and evolve them fast. If you need to build up a pokemon later in the game, you should put two of the basic form down at once. That way, they can only snipe one and you can evolve the other one next turn. If you play them down just for the sake of filling the bench, they become fodder for your opponent to get an easy prize through sniping. The computer can't think this way, but players know this through experience.
