Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Exploud from the Supreme Victors set. This is a Stage 2, normal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a +30 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Exploud's Poke-Body is called Erasing Sound and says that none of your Pokemon have any weakness. Besides the Poke-Body, Exploud has two moves, the first move is called Knock Back and requires two colorless energy cards, this move does 40 damage and requires your opponent to switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon. Exploud's second move is called Hyper Beam and for three colorless energy cards, it does 60 damage and if you get a heads when you flip a coin your opponent must discard an energy card attached to their active Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this card is normal type card, you can put it in any type of deck. I would suggest getting Exploud onto your bench as soon as possible so you can use its Poke-Body if most of your Pokemon are weak to your opponent's Pokemon. I would then stock Exploud up with energy cards on the bench and put it into play. I will more than likely use Hyper Beam every turn since it does 60 damage, but if it would make more sense to only do 40 damage and switch the defending Pokemon I could do that as well.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This card gets a one up on the average score because both of its moves do something in addition to doing damage. And both of these things can really affect your opponent. Also 130 hp for a stage 2 is good, and a two colorless energy retreat cost is also not too extreme.
