Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aron from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Aron is a basic, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Aron does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Take Down which requires two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless and does 30 damage. However when using Take Down, Aron does 10 damage to itself.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aron has a stage 1 evolution in Lairon, and a stage 2 evolution in Aggron, there is absolutely no reason to put this card into the active Pokemon spot if it hasn't evolved into at least its stage 1 evolution. My main reason for saying this is that Aron is extremely slow to attack and when it does attack it does damage to itself, plus if you do move it into the active Pokemon spot and need to retreat you will have to discard two energy cards to do so. So after just reviewing this card, I cannot recommend using Aron on its own. Strategy wise if you put Aron into the active Pokemon spot I would suggest using Take Down every turn because you have no other choice of a move to use.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a very poor basic Pokemon card. It has a good hp, but that is where it ends...its move isn't very good and its retreat cost is pretty expensive. So I would definitely not recommend using this card at all.
