Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Drifloon from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. This is the first of two Drifloon cards I'll be reviewing from this set, the other one from this set I'll be reviewing tomorrow. Drifloon is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Drifloon does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Sneaky Placement which takes one psychic energy card and lets you put one damage counter on one of your opponent's Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Drifloon has a stage 1 evolution in Drifblim, I would suggest evolving Drifloon into Drifblim as soon as possible because evolution cards are usually better. But with this card, I could definitely see it being used on its own in a deck, because it is a good starter Pokemon. You can put Drifloon into the active Pokemon spot immediately and attack as soon as you get one energy card on it. You only need one energy card on this card because that's all this card requires. A good strategy to use with this card is to include this card in a deck that has plenty of Pokemon that does spread damage, that way you can start to spread damage around starting with this card and moving on to more powerful Pokemon later in the game. I would suggest putting 1 or 2 Drifloon cards in a psychic type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a pretty solid basic Pokemon card. It has an average hp, good retreat cost, and one solid move that spreads damage and is quick to use. I wish this card would have another move, or have an Ability, but I still think it is a solid card and wouldn't be afraid to include this card in a deck of mine.
