Trubbish -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Trubbish Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Trubbish from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Trubbish is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychc type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Trubbish does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Pound which requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage.  Trubbish's second move is called Poison Gas and for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, this move does 30 damage and poisons the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Trubbish has a stage 1 evolution in Garbodor, I would suggest evolving Trubbish into Garbodor as soon as possible because evolution cards are usually better.  This card wouldn't be an ideal starter card because it is pretty slow, but if you get a few energy cards on this card on your bench it wouldn't be that bad to put it into the active Pokemon spot.  Depending on how many energy cards you have will determine which move you can use, but I would recommend using Poison Gas every turn.  I would try and include this card with Garbodor, but if you want to use this card on its own, I would recommend putting one in a psychic type deck that includes Pokemon that inflict a lot of special conditions.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  Like I said in the strategy section of this review, this card isn't great as a starter Pokemon, but it is solid as a basic Pokemon, it has an above average hp, and two decent moves.  Nothing is out of the ordinary on this card, that is why I'm giving it an average rating, you'll have to stay tuned to read tomorrow's review to see if you should use Trubbish and Garbodor in your deck.
