Bouffalant -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Bouffalant Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bouffalant from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Bouffalant is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Bouffalant's Ability is called Bouffer and it says that any damage done to this Pokemon by attacks is reduced by 20.  Besides the Ability, Bouffalant just has one move called Gold Breaker which takes three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage plus 60 more damage if you're facing an EX Pokemon card.

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.  Since Bouffalant is quite slow, I would recommend keeping Bouffalant on the bench until you get three energy cards on it, and then once you do, if you know your opponent has an EX card in their deck, I would a actually keep this card on the bench until your opponent plays that EX card, that way you could use Gold Breaker and do 120 damage per turn against that EX Pokemon.  Also, by keeping this card on your bench, it may prevent your opponent from putting that EX Pokemon into their active Pokemon spot.  Regardless of when you do put Bouffalant into the active Pokemon spot, your only choice is to use Gold Breaker every turn.  I would recommend using this card in almost any deck, but I would not use more than 1 in any deck because it does require 3 energy cards to attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon card set.  I like how this card has an above average hp, an Ability that will make its hp seem even higher, and one ordinary move that becomes extraordinary if you're facing an EX Pokemon.  Plus since this card is a colorless type Pokemon you don't have to worry about the type of energy cards you attach to it.
