Leafeon -- Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Review

Leafeon Dark Explorers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Leafeon from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set.  This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Leafeon doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Quick Attack and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Leafeon's second move is called Energy Assist and for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, Leafeon does 40 damage and you may also attach an energy card from your discard pile to one of your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card would be a good supplemental card to use in a grass type deck. I would make sure to use this card if you have a card that discards energy cards when it attacks, that way you can use that card that discards energy cards a couple of turns in a row, then move Leafeon into the active Pokemon spot, use Energy Assist a couple of turns and put those energy cards that were discarded back on the Pokemon that discarded them, I would continue with this cycle as long as possible.  I would recommend a line of 2 Eevee and 1 Leafeon, or 3 and 2 in a dual or mostly grass type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  This card is extremely average, I could definitely see this card being an uncommon card, both moves are okay on this card but neither of them stand out.  If you're looking for a couple more cards to put in a deck this card along with Eevee wouldn't be a terrible choice.

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