Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Floatzel from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Floatzel is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. Floatzel is the stage 1 evolution of Buizel, there is a Buizel card in this set and I reviewed that card yesterday. Floatzel has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Floatzel does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Wave Splash and this move requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage. Floatzel's second move is called Waterfall and for two water energy cards, this move does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon, you'll first have to evolve Buizel into Floatzel to use this card. Like I said yesterday, you can probably try and get Buizel into the active Pokemon spot very early in the game because it is a good starter Pokemon but I would try evolving Buizel into Floatzel as soon as possible because Floatzel can do 60 damage a turn for only two energy cards, thus if you get Floatzel into the active Pokemon spot early, you should be able to knock out some Pokemon in one turn, most Pokemon in two turns. The only reason I wouldn't use Waterfall when playing this card is if I didn't have two energy cards attached to Floatzel. I would include a 2-2 line of Buizel and Floatzel in a water type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card. What I really like about this card is its move Waterfall, I like the fact that it does above average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires to attack and the fact that it can attack very quickly. So I would definitely recommend using this card in any water type deck you may consider building.
