Crustle -- Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Review

Crustle Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Crustle from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set.  Crustle is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Crustle does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Hard Press, for two colorless energy cards, this move does 30 damage plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.  Crustle's second move is called Hammer In, for three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, this move does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Crustle is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Dwebble into play (I reviewed Dwebble from this set yesterday) and then evolve Dwebble into Crustle.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Dwebble was a slightly below average basic Pokemon card that should not be used on its own, but could easily be used with this card.  So after summarizing Crustle in the overview part of this post, I think Crustle could easily be used in a grass type deck, it definitely wouldn't be the main Pokemon in that deck, but it still should help your team quite a bit.  I would consider putting a 2-2 or 2-1 line of Dwebble and Crustle and wanting to get Crustle into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible, the earlier in the game the better.  If you use Hard Press early in the game, it will allow you to keep Crustle in the active Pokemon spot for longer and let you set up your bench more easily, but if you choose to use Hammer In most turns, you'll definitely knock out some Pokemon in one turn with a move that does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the Legendary Treasures set.  This card is a very solid Pokemon card in my opinion and will make a good second or third option card in your grass type deck.  This card has a good hp, and two very good moves.  The only negative on this card is that its hp is a bit high, but not out of control or anything.  Overall, I would give the line of Dwebble and Crustle from this set a 4 out of 5 rating, individually they received 3 and 4 ratings.
