Milotic -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Milotic Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Milotic from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Milotic is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110.  Milotic is the stage 1 evolution of Feebas, there is a Feebas card in this set and I reviewed that card yesterday.  Milotic has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Milotic does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Clear Search and for one water energy card, this move allows you to search your deck for any 3 cards and put them into your hand.  Milotic's second move is called Water Pulse and for three energy cards, one water and two colorless, this move does 60 damage and puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon, you'll first have to evolve Feebas into Milotic to use this card.  Like I said yesterday, you'll want to keep Feebas on the bench until you evolve it into Milotic, once that happens you can move this card into the active Pokemon spot when it has at least one energy card on it.  As far as strategy goes, this is an important water type Pokemon card to have in a deck that is based around using stage 2 Pokemon, I say this because you can put Milotic into the active Pokemon spot and then use Clear Search a couple of turns to get all the Pokemon you need into your hand and then evolve those Pokemon that next turn.  Clear Search eliminates the need for a lot of supporter cards that allow you to search your deck for specific cards.  Once you're done getting the cards you need from your deck, or you just want to attack in general you'll have to use Water Pulse.  It may be a good idea to use Water Pulse the first time, get the defending Pokemon to sleep and then use Clear Search that next turn.  I would use a 2-1 or 2-2 line of Feebas and Milotic in a somewhat water type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card.  It has higher than average hp, a low retreat cost, and two good moves.  Clear Search is good because it only requires one energy card and can greatly aid your team, and Water Pulse does average damage for three energy cards but by inflicting a special condition every turn, it makes the move an above average move.
