Probopass -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Probopass Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Probopass from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Probopass is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Probopass does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, its first move is called Magnetic Lines which takes two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage, this move also allows you to move an energy card attached to your opponent's active Pokemon and put it on one of their benched Pokemon.  Probopass's second move is called Heavy Nose and for three energy cards, one metal, and two colorless, this move does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if the defending Pokemon has any damage counters on it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Probopass is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Nosepass into play (I reviewed Nosepass from this set yesterday) and then evolve Nosepass into Probopass.  If you read yesterday's review, I think Nosepass is a decent basic Pokemon so it definitely could be used on its own in a deck or moved into the active Pokemon spot before it is evolved into Probopass.  Whenever you do get Probopass into play, I would wait to put it into the active Pokemon spot, I would attach three energy cards on Probopass, make sure the defending Pokemon has damage on it and then use Heavy Nose every turn and do 90 damage.  To ensure that Heavy Nose can do 90 damage every turn I would include this card in a spread damage type deck and use the Pokemon that can do spread damage first before you put Probopass into the active Pokemon spot.  I would suggest using a 1-1 line of Nosepass and Probopass in a partly metal type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card.  It has two decent moves, and a good hp.  The reason it isn't getting higher than an average rating is because of its retreat cost, it is way too high, and seems unreasonably high for the energy cards this card requires to attack and its hp.  So just make sure if you do use this card in your deck you take into consideration its retreat cost before putting it into the active Pokemon spot.

I m not even sure if its worth to keep playing this game. Exact same thing for over a week now and no chance to get new cards.

Thanks for the code. I don't think I would put Probopass or Nosepass in my deck. I just know I would lose with them.
