Slowbro -- Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Review

Slowbro Dark Expolorers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Slowbro from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set.  This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Slowbro's Ability is called Airhead and it says that if you have an even amount of prize cards left Slowbro can't attack.  Slowbro's only move is called Lazy Headbutt which does 80 damage for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll want to put this card into the active Pokemon spot when you have an odd number of prize cards left so you can actually attack, when you can attack you're only choice is to use Lazy Headbutt and hopefully knock out the defending Pokemon by doing 80 damage, after that you'll either have to have a trainer card to wake Slowbro up, wait for it to get knocked out, or retreat it by attaching an additional energy card to it.  I personally wouldn't use this card, but if you do I would suggest using a 2-1 line of Slowpoke and Slowbro.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. I really dislike this stage 1 Pokemon card, even though it can do 80 damage, it puts itself to sleep right away and can only attack at certain points in the game, the worse part of this card is that its retreat cost is higher than any of its attacks.  So I do not recommend using this card at all, stay away from it at all costs.

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

there is one way of using this card as "good". using it with Garbodor (from Dragon Blast) that cancels all Abilities,including yours,so Slowbro Ability wouldn't work and using a lot of items,like full heal,life herb,super scoop up,switch,junk arm...thing that could make your slowbro wake up from using his ttack. then you would have a pokemon that attack 80 for 2 energies for no cost.
