Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vaporeon from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Vaporeon doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Muddy Water and for one colorless energy card it does 20 damage plus 20 more damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon. Vaporeon's second move is called Spiral Drain which does 60 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one water, plus it heals 20 damage from Vaporeon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would include this card in a deck that has other spread damage type Pokemon in it, so when you use Muddy Water you can potentially knock out one of your opponent's benched Pokemon or set up one of your opponent's benched Pokemon to be knocked out by one of your Pokemon in the future. I would move Vaporeon into the active Pokemon spot as soon as I can since it only requires 1 energy card to attack, I would attack with Muddy Water until I get three energy cards on Vaporeon then I would use Spiral Drain.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. For an uncommon, stage 1 Pokemon card, I think this is a great card. It has above average hp, and two great moves, one can spread damage and the other can heal Vaporeon which will make its 110 hp seem even higher. So if you're looking for 3 more cards to fit into your deck, I would definitely suggest using 2 Eevee's and 1 Vaporeon.
