Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dewgong from the Supreme Victors set. This is a Stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a +20 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Body is called Thick Fat and says that any damage done to Dewgong from water or fire type Pokemon is reduced by 30. Besides the Poke-Body, Dewgong has two moves, the first move is called Ice Shard and this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless and does 30 damage unless the defending Pokemon is a fighting type Pokemon then it does 80 damage instead. Dewgong's second move is called Aurora Beam and for four energy cards, two each of water and colorless it does 70 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card is very good in that it can be improved if it is facing a fighting, water, or fire type Pokemon which are three of the most popular types in the trading card game. I would suggest keeping this card on my bench until it had 4 energy cards on it, then put it in and use Aurora Beam every turn. Unless you are facing a fighting type Pokemon card then I would use it as soon as possible and Ice Shard.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. Especially if you're facing a water or fire type Pokemon, Dewgong's hp is exceptionally high for a stage 1 Pokemon. And if given enough time can do a large amount of damage and be able to keep doing that same amount turn after turn. The only downside to this card is its large retreat cost, but what do you expect from a card that can do 70 or 80 damage a turn?
