Cofagrigus #46/101 -- Noble Victories Pokemon Card Review

Cofagrigus #46/101 Pokemon Card Noble Victories SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cofagrigus from the Noble Victories set. This is the second of two Cofagrigus cards I'll be reviewing from this set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Cofagrigus doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Damagriigus and for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless you may move all damage counters from 1 of your benched Pokemon to the defending Pokemon. Cofagrigus' other move is called Perplex and for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, it does 30 damage and confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll definitely want to put this card into a deck that has a lot of Pokemon that either has free or low retreat costs. That way you can play whatever card you like until it is close to getting knocked out, retreat it, put Cofagrigus into play and use Damagriigus and remove all the damage from the Pokemon you just retreated and put that damage onto your opponent's active Pokemon. So I would search for the Pokemon with free retreat costs and the highest hp. If you don't have any benched Pokemon with much damage on them, use Perplex and hope that your opponent is confused when trying to attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is above average in some aspects and below average in others. It has an average hp, and has the potential to not only do a lot of damage but heal your Pokemon at the same time. This card would be extremely powerful if you could retreat it cheaply instead of having to put 3 energy cards on it to retreat it, and you'll want to retreat Cofagrigus so you can use Damagriigus numerous times without getting knocked out.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Cofagrigus from the Noble Victories set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the first of two Reuniclus cards from the Noble Victories set.

Just wanna say that this card works wonders when combined with Reuniclus from the Black and White set. (The one that let's you rearrange damage counters)especially if you have a few switches in your deck
