Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Escavalier from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Escavalier doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Guard Press which takes two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless, and does 40 damage, and the turn after using this move any damage done to this Pokemon by attacks is reduced by 20. Escavalier's second move is called Twineedle which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, and does 70 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, once you get this Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot, use whichever move you have the necessary energy cards for. I would obviously use Guard Press if the defending Pokemon would be knocked out with 40 damage or less, if they wouldn't be knocked out, I would use Twineedle and hope to get two heads and do 140 damage per turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. There really isn't anything too special about this card, neither move does much for damage (unless you're lucky) and with only 90 hp, this card will be knocked out fairly fast. I would definitely try and find a different metal type Pokemon for my deck.
