Dusclops -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Dusclops Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dusclops from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Dusclops is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Dusclops does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Astonish which requires only one psychic energy card and allows you to randomly select a card from your opponent's hand and have them put it back into their deck.  Dusclops's second move is called Psyshot which requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dusclops has a stage 2 evolution in Dusknoir, if you have Dusclops on your bench, I would keep it there until you evolve it into Dusknoir, if you have a Dusknoir card in your deck of course.  If you choose to use Duskull and Dusclops without Dusknoir, I would actually keep Duskull in the active Pokemon spot until you get three energy cards attached to it, then evolve it into Dusclops and then use Psyshot every turn after that.  I personally think that Confuse Ray on Duskull is better than Astonish on Dusclops so unless you are going to get knocked out if you don't evolve, I would use Dusclops awhile in the active Pokemon spot.  However, if Duskull is not in the active Pokemon spot, and you don't have Dusknoir in your deck, keep Duskull on the bench, evolve it into Dusclops and then attach three energy cards to it before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  I would not recommend using either Dusclops or Duskull in a deck so far, you'll have to wait until tomorrow's review to see if the final Pokemon in this line, Dusknoir, is any good.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very below average stage 1 Pokemon card.  It has a below average hp, a somewhat high retreat cost, and two subpar moves.  I would not recommend using this card heavily in a deck at all, and I would definitely not use this card if you don't plan on evolving it. Astonish doesn't do much for me, and Psyshot does 20 damage less than most moves do for three energy cards.  So again, stay away from this card at all costs.
