Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nincada from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Nincada is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 40. It has two stage 1 evolutions in this set, they are Shedinja and Ninjask. I'll be reviewing both of those cards the next two days. Nincada has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Nincada does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Dig which does 10 damage for a colorless energy card. Besides doing the damage, if you get a heads when you flip a coin, this move prevents Nincada from being attacked the next turn.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nincada is a basic Pokemon card that has two evolutions in this set, I would not use Nincada in the active Pokemon spot if I didn't have to, I would start putting energy cards on Nincada, psychic for Shedinja or grass for Ninjask, and leave Nincada on the bench until it evolves into one of those Pokemon. If you have to put Nincada into the active Pokemon spot you have no choice but to use Dig. I would not use Nincada on its own in any deck, I would pair the card with either or both of its evolutions, you'll see tomorrow how exactly I would use this card in a deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. This card is a below average, basic Pokemon card. It has a very low hp, and a decent move, this card would get knocked out almost instantly if it didn't have the effect besides doing damage with Dig, but if you aren't lucky and don't flip a heads, you can say good bye to this card, so make sure to keep this card on your bench if you can.
