Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sigilyph from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Sigilyph is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Sigilyph's Ability is called Safeguard and says that all effects of attacks are prevented from Sigilyph if a Pokemon EX is attacking it. Besides the Ability, Sigilyph has one move called Psychic which requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 50 damage plus 10 more damage for each energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with no evolutions, you only need to include this card in the deck if you want to use it. I would recommend getting Sigilyph onto your bench as soon as possible so that you can take advantage of its Ability, as soon as your opponent puts an EX Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot I would move Sigilyph into the active Pokemon spot. If your opponent isn't using an EX card, I would wait and move Sigilyph into the active Pokemon spot once it has three energy cards on it and your opponent has a Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot that has at least two energy cards on it, that way, you can move Sigilyph into the active Pokemon spot and do 70 damage with Psychic. I would not put more than 2 Sigilyph cards in a psychic type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, I think Sigilyph is a great basic Pokemon card. I like that it has a high hp, low retreat cost, an extraordinary Ability (if you're facing EX Pokemon) and a move that does more damage the more energy cards attached to the defending Pokemon. So I would recommend using this card for sure, and that's why I'm giving this card an above average rating.
