Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vullaby from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set. This is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Vullaby doesn't have an Ability and it only has one move called Whirlwind which takes one darkness energy card and does 10 damage, plus it makes your opponent switch out their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Mandibuzz, you'll want to evolve Vullaby into Mandibuzz as soon as possible because Mandibuzz has a much higher hp, and can do a lot more damage, however Vullaby is a great starter Pokemon and a great Pokemon to use after you either knock out one of the defending Pokemon or you retreat one of your own, I would move Vullaby into the active Pokemon spot and then use Whirlwind one turn, make the opponent put in a Pokemon they don't want to, then the next turn evolve Vullaby into Mandibuzz, you also could just use Vullaby every once in awhile to switch your opponent's active Pokemon, then the next turn retreat Vullaby back for one energy card. If I were to use Vullaby in a deck I would use a 2-1 line of Vullaby and Mandibuzz.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very solid basic Pokemon card. I would consider it for almost any deck, just bare in mind that it requires a darkness energy card. There isn't anything too special about this card, it is very average yet once again very solid.
