Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Slakoth from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Slakoth is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Slakoth does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Smack 'n' Slack which takes one colorless energy card and does 10 damage, however when using this move it puts Slakoth to sleep.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Slakoth has a stage 1 evolution in Vigoroth, and a stage 2 evolution in Slaking, there is absolutely no reason to put this card into the active Pokemon spot if it hasn't evolved into at least its stage 1 evolution. My main reason for saying this is that Slakoth only have one move and the one move it does have puts Slakoth to sleep which may make it unable to attack for several turns in a row, and with only 60 hp, Slakoth won't last long in the active Pokemon spot without getting knocked out. So I would highly recommend not putting this card into the active Pokemon spot, if you have to, your only choice is to use Smack 'n' Slack every turn and hope to evolve it into Vigoroth sooner rather than later. I would not use this card on its own in any deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a very poor basic Pokemon card. It has a good hp, but that is where it ends...its move isn't very good and its retreat cost is pretty expensive. So I would definitely not recommend using this card at all. Even though it can fit in any deck since it is a colorless type Pokemon, I still wouldn't use this card.
