Probopass -- Arceus Pokemon Card Review

Probopass Pokemon Card Arceus SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Probopass from the Arceus set. This is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a +20 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Probopass's Poke-Body is called Competitiveness which says that if you don't have a Supporter card in play each of Probopass's moves does 30 damage more. So besides the Poke-Body, Probopass has two moves, the first move is called Top Chop which does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless. Probopass's second move is called Tumbling Attack which does 50 damage for three energy cards, one metal and two colorless. When using this move you may flip a coin, if you get a heads this move does 80 damage instead of 50.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll definitely want to make sure you don't use any supporter cards so you can utilize Probopass's Poke-Body and do 30 more damage that turn. I would stick to using Tumbling Attack every turn and hoping to flip a heads so you can do 110 damage a turn. I wouldn't put Probopass into the active Pokemon card spot until it can use Tumbling Attack because with only 100 hp it won't last too long and you want this card to last as long as possible since it can do 110 damage per turn if you get lucky and flip a heads.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Even though this card can do major damage it still is only an average card. Its retreat cost is way too high for a stage 1 card, and if you don't have three energy cards on Probopass, its first move isn't anything special and is a waste to use if you don't have to.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Probopass from the Arceus set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Salamence from the Arceus set.
