Aerodactyl -- Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Review

Aerodactyl Dark Explorers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aerodactyl from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set.  This is a restored (basically a stage 1), fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aerodactyl's Ability is called Ancient Scream which makes all your Pokemon's attacks do 10 more damage to your opponent's active Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Aerodactyl has one move called Wing Attack which does 40 damage for three colorless energy cards.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a Pokemon with an Ability that you'll definitely want to utilize so keeping Aerodactyl on the bench throughout the entire game is a must, no matter your deck type.  Other than using its Ability, Wing Attack isn't a great move but it does only require colorless energy cards making Aerodactyl a very versatile card.  But I would definitely use this card only for its Ability, therefore I would only keep one of these in my deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  Disappointingly I have to give this card a low rating, I like that this card allows all your Pokemon to do 10 more damage when the attack but other than that this card really has no use, Wing Attack is too weak, and having to have an Old Amber card in your deck which can't do anything might make this card unwanted in many decks out there, but if you need two more cards in your deck I would definitely give this card a look just for its Ability.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Aerodactyl from the Dark Explorers set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Krookodile from the same set.
