Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Murkrow from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Murkrow is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Murkrow does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Pck and for one colorless energy card, this move does 10 damage. Murkrow's second move is called Wing Attack and for two energy cards, one each of colorless and darkness, this move does 20 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, even though Murkrow has a stage 1 evolution in Honchkrow, and there is a Honchkrow in this set (I'll be reviewing that card tomorrow), I would definitely recommend moving in Murkrow from your bench to your active Pokemon spot as soon as you can in the game. The reasons for this would be that Murkrow has a fairly high hp, and two quick, efficient moves, that can do a fair amount of damage to other, weaker basic Pokemon early in games. Plus, you can attach two energy cards to Murkrow and then set up the rest of your team on the bench, and if Murkrow gets in trouble you can either retreat it for one energy card or evolve it into Honchkrow. If you only want to use Murkrow in a deck, I would put 1 or 2 Murkrow cards in a darkness type deck, but since both of Murkrow's moves require at least one colorless energy card I don't think this card would be hard to fit into most decks.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card. I like that it has a good hp, but still has an evolution, and is quick to attack, both moves doing damage and neither move requiring more than 2 energy cards. So I would definitely recommend using this card in battle, stay tuned for tomorrow's review to see if I recommend using this card would its evolution in Honchkrow.
