Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gabite from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. This is the second of two consecutive Gabite cards from this set. Gabite is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This Gabite card does have an Ability, the Ability is called Dragon Call and says that once during your turn you may search your deck for a dragon type Pokemon and put it into your hand. Besides the Ability, Gabite only has one move called Dragonslice which takes two energy cards, one each of water and fighting, and does 20 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gabite has a stage 2 evolution in Garchomp, I would suggest evolving Gible into Gabite and then Gabite into Garchomp if possible. If you choose to use this Gabite card over the other Gabite card from this deck I would not move this card into the active Pokemon spot if possible. I would keep it on the bench and use Dragon Call every chance I could. I would recommend using this Gabite card over the other Gabite card if your deck includes many other dragon type Pokemon, then you can use this card as a catalyst to get those other cards into play. However, if you have to move Gabite into the active Pokemon spot, you have no choice but to use Dragonslice every turn until you can evolve Gabite into Garchomp. If you are only going to use this card for its Ability, I would only use a 1-1 line of Gible and Gabite in a mostly dragon type deck, otherwise I wouldn't recommend using this card if you want to use only 1 or 2 dragon type Pokemon cards in your deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a very average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though I gave both Gabite cards from this deck the same rating, I prefer yesterday's card over this card. At least yesterday's card could do well if moved into the active Pokemon spot, this card doesn't have much of a chance. Other than only having one move, this card is the same as yesterday's card.
