Emolga -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Emolga Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Emolga from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Emolga is a basic, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost.  Emolga does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Call for Family, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to search your deck for 2 basic Pokemon and put them onto your bench.  Emolga's second move is called Static Shock and for one electric energy card this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with no evolutions, I would recommend putting Emolga into play as soon as you can, preferably very early in the game, so you can use this card as a starter Pokemon card.  I would use Static Shock mostly, so I could do good damage to my opponent's basic Pokemon, while not having to attach additional energy to Emolga each turn I could spend time on setting up my bench.  And for some reason, if you don't have many basic Pokemon on your bench early in the game, you may want to use Call for Family, but I would rather use a trainer card for this move instead of wasting a turn using this move and not being able to do damage.  I would include one of these cards in an electric type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very solid basic Pokemon card.  It has two moves which is always a plus, a free retreat cost, and is very quick.  This card would be an excellent starter card for an electric type deck, and should definitely be in almost every electric type deck out there.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME! i respect you ptp, but a 3 out of 5 in an electric type deck is just rubbish! this pokemon is in every competitive deck because of call for family, not for static shock! i would really stop doing this rating thing because you are giving weak cards a high rating and very strong ones weaker ratings.
