Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stunfisk from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Stunfisk is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Stunfisk does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. The first move is called Muddy Water and for one fighting energy card this move does 20 damage to your opponent's active Pokemon and 20 more damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon. Stunfisk's second move is called Rumble which requires two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, and does 40 damage and makes the defending Pokemon unable to retreat during their next turn.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with no evolutions, you only need to include this card in the deck if you want to use it. Stunfisk is a very fast attacker only requiring two energy cards to do the move that requires the most on this card. I would move Stunfisk into the active Pokemon spot as early in the game as possible and use Muddy Water every turn, not only does this do a fair amount of damage to the defending Pokemon but after using it a couple of turns, your opponent's benched Pokemon will be suffering too. The only time I would use Rumble is if you can knock out the defending Pokemon by doing 40 damage, otherwise I would stick to Muddy Water. I would include Stunfisk in a fighting type deck that has other spread damage type Pokemon in it. I would include 1 or 2 of these cards in a deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a very good basic Pokemon card and would make an excellent starter Pokemon in a deck. This card can do a good amount of damage very quickly and spread that damage around as well. Another thing I like about this card is its high hp which is great for a starter Pokemon. The one thing from preventing me on giving this card a perfect rating is this card's retreat cost which is higher than the energy costs for either of its moves. But overall this is a great card and I highly recommend it.
