Pokemon Card of the Day: Kabutops (Arceus)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kabutops from the Arceus set. This is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. It has a +30 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost. Kabutops has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Primal Scythe and this move does 20 damage plus 50 more damage if you discard a helix or dome fossil, or Old Amber from your hand for only one fighting energy card. Kabutops' second move is called Rock Slide and this move does 60 damage for 3 energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, it also does 10 damage to 2 of your opponent's benched Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend using Primal Scythe right away since it only requires one energy card and you can do 70 damage and more than likely if you are using a fossil type deck you'll have a lot of these fossil cards you can discard and then you can just use Night Maintenance to retrieve them again, but if you don't want to discard anything Rock Slide is a viable move to do because it not only will knock most Pokemon out in two moves but it will do damage to two other Pokemon as well. So I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating because it has a high hp and two good moves that either you can execute very quickly requiring little energy or a move that can spread damage. So thanks for reading today's review of Kabutops from Arceus stay tuned for tomorrow's review.

Night maintenance isnt legal to use anymore. a better card to use is fossil excavator. Plus in the disacard pile fossil cards are trainers so until junk arm comes out in then next set, fossil excavator is what gets them back.
