Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zweilous from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. This is the first of two consecutive Zweilous cards from this set. Zweilous is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Zweilous does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Crunch which requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, you may remove an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon. Zweilous's second move is called Dragon Claw which requires three energy cards, one psychic and two darkness, this move does 80 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zweilous has a stage 2 evolution in Hydreigon, I would suggest evolving Deino into Zweilous and then Zweilous into Hydreigon if possible. I would consider moving Zweilous into the active Pokemon spot if it is on the bench and you have three energy cards attached to it, that way you can start using Dragon Claw every turn. If for some reason you have to put Zweilous into the active Pokemon spot before it has three energy cards on it you'll have to use Crunch. I would definitely think about using Zweilous in a deck without Hydreigon because it can do 80 damage for three energy cards which is a good move to use, however the one thing I would be weary about is that Zweilous's hp isn't very high for a stage 1 Pokemon. So if you want to use Zweilous without Hydreigon, I would only suggest using a 1-1 line of Deino and Zweilous in a darkness and psychic type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a very average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though this card has a low hp, I still think it is a decent, stage 1 Pokemon card. I think that both of its moves make up for the fact it has a low hp. So I would recommend using this card without Hydreigon but I think it would be a much safer bet to use this card with Hydreigon. I'll see tomorrow if the other Zweilous from this set is better than this one.
