Mandibuzz -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Mandibuzz Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mandibuzz from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Mandibuzz is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mandibuzz does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Gust, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 30 damage.  Mandibuzz's second move is called Dual Cut, this move requires four energy cards, three colorless and one darkness, and does 80 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mandibuzz is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Vullaby into play (I reviewed Vullaby from this set yesterday) and then evolve Vullaby into Mandibuzz.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Vullaby was a decent Pokemon card to use in a deck on its own and as a starter Pokemon.  Because of this, you may already have Vullaby in your active Pokemon spot when you get Mandibuzz in your hand, if this is the case, get two energy cards on Mandibuzz after you evolve Vullaby, and use Gust, depending on how the rest of your deck looks will determine if you put two more energy cards on Mandibuzz and use Dual Cut.  If you do decide to put four energy cards on Mandibuzz and use Dual Cut, just make sure to use Gust when you have to do 30 damage or less to knock out the defending Pokemon.  Personally, I would not use Dual Cut, I would only have a 1-1 line of Vullaby and Mandibuzz in a darkness type deck, and use Mandibuzz for its Gust move because it is quick and does a decent amount of damage.

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. This card is pretty average overall, it has two decent moves, average hp, and a low retreat cost.  This card would easily have been above average if Dual Cut would have done at least 80 damage every turn instead of possibly not doing anything on some turns.  So this line, Vullaby and Mandibuzz, are going to get a 3 out of 5 rating from me.  Both cards are very average.

So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Mandibuzz from the Boundaries Crossed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the first of two Skarmory cards which are also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Mandibuzz is a female-only species. Braviary is regarded as a male counterpart, but is a separate species that cannot produce Vullaby Eggs.

It's Braviary, since they cannot be found in the same game.
