Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Palpitoad from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. Palpitoad has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Palpitoad doesn't have an Ability and it only has one move called Bubble Beam which does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless. Besides doing the damage, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed if you get a heads when you flip a coin when using Bubble Beam.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card that has a stage 2 evolution you're going to want to evolve Palpitoad into Seismitoad as soon as you can since that Pokemon is much better, but if you have to use Palpitoad in the active Pokemon spot the strategy is extremely straightforward since this card only has one move, so if you have two energy cards on Palpitoad use Bubble Beam until you can evolve Palpitoad into Seismitoad.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. Once again, I wouldn't use this card for long in the active Pokemon spot, but if you are using this card, this card is below average, it has a low hp, and high retreat cost, and Bubble Beam is an average move at best.
