Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mandibuzz from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Mandibuzz doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Bone Rush which does 30 damage times the number of heads you get until you flip a tails, and this move requires one darkness energy card. Mandibuzz's other move is called Dark Pulse which takes two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each darkness energy card attached to all of you Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, if you do use this card it is imperative you use this card in a mostly darkness type deck so you have plenty of darkness energy cards on all your Pokemon so when you use Dark Pulse it will do way more than 20 damage. Other than that, I would stay away from this card since Bone Rush could end up doing no damage at all.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. If this card isn't in a mostly darkness type deck, these card is pretty worthless, it can't do much damage, and the only way it has the potential to do more damage is to get lucky with Bone Rush. I would recommend finding another darkness type card to use if you're considering a darkness type deck.
