Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ambipom from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Ambipom is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Ambipom does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, its first move is called Double Hit and for one colorless energy card this move does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins. Ambipom's second move is called Hand Fling and for two colorless energy cards this move does 10 damage times the number of cards in your hand.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ambipom is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Aipom into play (I reviewed Aipom from this set yesterday) and then evolve Aipom into Ambipom. If you read yesterday's review, I think it would be okay to move Aipom into the active Pokemon spot first, but if you have a choice I would definitely keep it on the bench until you're able to evolve it into Ambipom. When you get Ambipom into the active Pokemon spot, I would use Hand Fling every turn as long as you have two energy cards attached to Ambipom and you have more than 2 cards in your hand. So to make sure you have plenty of cards in your hand I would include trainers/supporters in the deck that allow you to draw cards and include Pokemon that don't need that many energy cards to attack, that way you should have more cards in your hand and be able to do more every turn with Ambipom. If you were to use Ambipom in a deck, I would use a 2-1 line of Aipom and Ambipom in whatever deck you're building.
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. Even though it does have lower than average hp for a stage 1 Pokemon, I think overall the card is average. Both of its moves are solid, both require little energy, and both require any type of energy making this card fit in any deck. I wouldn't highly recommend to use this card but it could definitely be a good filler for a deck if you're looking to get 60 cards in your deck.
