Aggron -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Aggron Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aggron from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Aggron is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  Aggron is the stage 2 evolution of Lairon, and before that Aron, both of those Pokemon I have reviewed the past couple of days, and both of those Pokemon are in this set.  Aggron has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aggron's Ability is called Toppling Wind and says that when you play Aggron from your hand to evolve one of your Pokemon, discard the top 3 cards of your opponent's deck.  Besides the Ability, Aggron has one move called Giga Horn which requires three energy cards, two metal and one colorless, and does 90 damage, however if you get two tails when you flip two coins, this move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aggron is a stage 2 Pokemon, I would recommend evolving Aron into Lairon and then putting Lairon into the active Pokemon spot and using Wreak Havoc one turn because that move does 60 damage and has the potential to make your opponent discard many cards from their deck, that way when you evolve Lairon into Aggron the next turn, you can better utilize Aggron's Ability and discard even more cards from your opponent's deck.  Other than that, Aggron is pretty straightforward to use, just use Giga Horn every turn because that is the only move Aggron has.  If you want to use this Pokemon line I would recommend using a 3-2-1 line of Aron, Lairon, and Aggron in a metal type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  This is a solid stage 2 Pokemon card in my opinion, I like the amount of hp it has and that it has a resistance, plus its Ability is good when first using Lairon from this set, and being able to do 90 damage per turn for only three energy cards is a big plus.  The reason I'm only giving this card an average rating is because Giga Horn may not be able to do any damage, and the retreat cost on this card is higher than any of the energy costs to attack.  But overall, this isn't a bad Pokemon line, and if you're looking for a good number of cards to put in your deck, this line might work well for you.
