Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vigoroth from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Vigoroth 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. Vigoroth does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Ambush which requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage plus 40 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vigoroth has a stage 2 evolution in Slaking, I would suggest evolving Slakoth into Vigoroth and then Vigoroth into Slaking if possible all on the bench. But if you have to move Vigorth into the active Pokemon spot before evolving it into Slaking, as long as you have two energy cards on Vigoroth, every turn you're going to have to use Ambush. Other than that, just try and evolve Vigoroth as quick as posible. After reviewing both Slakoth and Vigoroth from this set, I would not recommend using either in a deck, that may change after I review Slaking tomorrow.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a poor stage 1 Pokemon card, but overall for a stage 1 Pokemon card it is better than what Slakoth was for a basic Pokemon. This card has a lower retreat cost than Slakoth and it can attack every turn. The reason I'm giving this card a below average rating is because it has below average hp, and its move Ambush isn't the greatest, at least without some luck, if you flip a heads every turn this card is very good, but if you don't or if you flip a heads fifty percent of the time this card isn't worth it as well. So once again I would stay away from using this card in a deck.
