Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wurmple from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Wurmple is a basic, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Wurmple has two evolutions in this set, its stage 1 evolution is Silcoon, and its stage 2 evolution is Beautifly. Wurmple does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Sleep Poison which requires one colorless energy card and allows you to flip a coin, if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is poisoned and asleep.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wurmple is a basic Pokemon card that has two evolutions in this set, like I mentioned in the previous section, I would recommend keeping Wurmple on your bench until you can evolve Wurmple into its stage 1 and eventually to its stage 2 evolution. If you have to put Wurmple into the active Pokemon spot you'll have no choice but to use Sleep Poison, since this is Wurmple's only move, you can hope you get a heads but either way, I would make sure to evolve Wurmple into Silcoon as fast as possible. Stay tuned for the next two days of card reviews to see how the rest of Wurmple's Pokemon line fairs out. As of now I can't recommend using this card in a deck because it can't guarantee doing any damage.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. Based on this card alone and not any of its evolutions from this set, I am going to give this card a very low rating because it can't do any damage for sure, it is only a 50% chance. So without Wurmple's evolutions this card definitely isn't worth playing, but if for some reason you only have one of these in a deck it better be a deck that is based around inflicting special conditions.
