Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Klang from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set. This is a Stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Klang doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Charge Beam and for two colorless energy cards it does 20 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, you can move an energy card from your discard pile onto Klang. Klang's second move is called Vice Grip, which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, and does 50 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card with a stage 2 evolution in Klinklang, you'll want to leave this card on your bench until you can evolve it into Klinklang. I wouldn't recommend putting this card into the active Pokemon spot because it isn't very good and could get knocked out before you would have a chance to use Klinklang. If you have to put Klang in the active Pokemon spot for some reason, the strategy is pretty straightforward, depending on how many energy cards you have will determine the move you can use, I would prefer Vice Grip over Charge Beam. One thing that is good about this card is that it takes mostly colorless energy cards so this card could easily fit in a dual type deck. If I were to use Klang in a deck, I would use a 3-2-1 line of Klink, Klang, and Klinklang.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. This really is a worthless stage 1 Pokemon card in my opinion, if you take a look at the picture it looks like Klang is already knocked out. Klang has a low hp, and very high retreat cost, but despite the high retreat cost, neither of Klang's moves can do much damage, so if you want to use Klang in your deck, make sure it is because you want to evolve it into Klinklang as soon as possible.
