Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cubone from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Cubone is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Cubone does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Headbutt and for one fighting energy card, this move does 10 damage. Cubone's second move is called Beat and for two colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, even though Cubone has a stage 1 evolution in Marowak, and there is a Marowak in this set (I'll be reviewing that card tomorrow), I would definitely recommend moving in Cubone from your bench to your active Pokemon spot as soon as you can in the game. The reasons for this would be that Cubone has a fairly high hp, and two quick, efficient moves, that can do a fair amount of damage to other, weaker basic Pokemon early in games. Plus, you can attach two energy cards to Cubone and then set up the rest of your team on the bench, and if Cubone gets in trouble you can either retreat it for one energy card or evolve it into Marowak. If you only want to use Cubone in a deck, I would put 1 or 2 Cubone's in a fighting type deck, but since Beat requires two colorless energy cards this card could work well in most decks.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card. I like that it has a good hp, but still has an evolution, and is quick to attack, both moves doing damage and neither move requiring more than 2 energy cards. So I would definitely recommend using this card in battle, stay tuned for tomorrow's review to see if I recommend using this card would its evolution in Marowak.
