Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aerodactyl from the Arceus set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Aerodactyl's Poke-Power is called Unearth and says that once during your turn you may search your deck for a Dome Fossil, Helix Fossil, or Old Amber and place that card into your hand. Besides the Poke-Power, Aerodactyl has one move called Hyper Beam which does 30 damage for two colorless energy cards. When using this move, you may flip a coin, if you get a heads you may remove an energy card from the defending Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would suggest using this card with other Pokemon that evolves from fossils. I would keep Aerodactyl on my bench and use its Poke-Power to get the fossils on the bench and then eventually evolve the fossils into Pokemon that can do more damage than Aerodactyl can do. I wouldn't suggest using Aerodactyl in play, it doesn't have much hp and it can't do much damage, I would much rather use it to aid my other Pokemon in the evolution process.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. If you aren't going to use Pokemon that evolve from fossils in the deck you are using this Aerodactyl card in might as well not use this card at all, it doesn't do much for damage and will get knocked out quite quickly with only 80 hp.
