Garbodor -- Noble Victories Pokemon Card Review

Garbodor Pokemon Card Noble Victories Set
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Garbodor from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Garbodor doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Gentle Wrap and for two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic it does 30 damage plus the defending Pokemon can't retreat during their next turn. Garbodor's second move is called Gunk Shot and does 60 damage for three energy cards, two psychic and one colorless, plus it poisons the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would include this psychic type Pokemon card in a deck that includes many other Pokemon which inflict special conditions. I would only have a 2-1 line of Trubbish and Garbodor in the deck since Garbodor is fairly slow and has a high retreat cost, I would keep Garbodor on the bench until it gets three energy cards on it and then use Gunk Shot preferably to knock out a Pokemon out the first time it is used and then hopefully get one more Pokemon knocked out using Gunk Shot twice before Garbodor gets knocked out or you have to retreat it and give up all three energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This is a very average stage 1 Pokemon card, it has two good but not great moves, it has an above average hp, standard weakness, and high retreat cost, so overall it is average, but if you need a couple more cards for your psychic deck I would definitely consider this card for your deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Garbodor from the Noble Victories set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Duosion from the same set.
