Gible #87/124 -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Gible Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gible from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two consecutive Gible cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Gible is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gible does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Sand-Attack and for one fighting energy card this move makes your opponent flip a coin if they try and attack the next turn, if they get a tails they can't attack.  Gible's second move is called Knock Away which takes two energy cards, one each of colorless and water and does 10 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gible has a stage 1 evolution in Gabite, and a stage 2 evolution in Garchomp, you can definitely leave this card on your bench and evolve Gible into its evolutions before putting it into the active Pokemon spot.  With this card, I would recommend keeping it on the bench and evolving it into an evolution before putting it into play, if you are looking to put Gible into play right away, I would use yesterday's Gible card.  If you have to put this Gible card into the active Pokemon spot, I would put two energy cards on this card and use Knock Away every turn.  But like I said a bit earlier, I would recommend the other Gible card from this set over this card.  I would not use more than 1 of these cards in a deck if you're only using this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this card is a bit worse than the Gible card I reviewed yesterday, even though this card has a higher hp than that card, I still like that card better.  This card depends too much on luck, and isn't as good of starter card as yesterday's card.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gible from the Dragons Exalted set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Gible's stage 1 evolution in Gabite from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
