Houndour -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Houndour Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Houndour from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Houndour is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Houndour does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Bite and for one colorless energy card, this move does 10 damage.  Houndour's second move is called Darkness Fang and for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Houndour is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Houndoom, I would recommend keeping Houndour on your bench and evolving it into Houndoom (which I'll be reviewing tomorrow) before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  If you have to put Houndour into the active Pokemon spot, I would recommend using Bite every turn because it only requires one energy card, if you know you're going to evolve Houndour into Houndoom, I would definitely put three energy cards on Houndour and use Darkness Fang every turn until you can evolve it into Houndoom.  Since Houndour is quite slow, if you want to do a good amount of damage, I would not include this card in a deck by itself.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an below average basic Pokemon card.  There are a couple of good things about this card, including its hp, retreat cost, and the move called Bite.  However, Darkness Fang costs way too much to use, so I would not recommend using this card in a deck, I would find a better starting Pokemon like Murkrow from a day or two ago.

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