Zweilous #96/124 -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Zweilous Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zweilous from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two consecutive Zweilous cards from this set.  Zweilous is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Zweilous does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Draw In and for one colorless energy cards this move allows you to attach two darkness type energy cards from your discard pile to Zweilous.  Zweilous's second move is called Dragon Headbutt and for three energy cards, one each of colorless, psychic, and darkness, this move does 40 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.  Compared to yesterday's card I would definitely not choose to use this Zweilous card in a deck that I wanted to use Hydreigon in.  This move does 40 less damage per turn for the same amount of energy cards and has a higher retreat cost.  But if you do have this card in your deck, if it is the only Hydreigon card you have for example, your only option to actually attack is to use Dragon Headbutt every turn, so once you get three energy cards on Zweilous use that move and definitely try to evolve Zweilous into Hydreigon as soon as possible.  I would not recommend using this card at all.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a terrible stage 1 Pokemon card, the only good thing about this card is that it has an average hp, nothing else is good at all, especially Dragon Headbutt, which does a minimal amount of damage for a fair amount of energy.  Previewing the next two days, one of the Hydreigon cards from this set requires a ton of energy cards but I would not waste my time putting Zweilous into the active Pokemon spot and using Draw In, I would just keep Zweilous on the bench and attach energy cards to it that way, or put trainer cards in the deck that allow you to attach energy cards to a Pokemon.  Once again, I do not recommend using this card at all.

Isnt the first move actually ok because you can evolve it the next turn and then you have Dark energy to move around with Dark trance?
