Aegislash #85/146 -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Aegislash Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aegislash from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Aegislash cards I'll be reviewing.  Aegislash is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aegislash's Ability is called Stance Change and says that once during your turn you may switch out this Aegislash card with one in your hand.  Besides the Ability, Aegislash has just one move called Buster Swing, this move requires four energy cards, two metal and two colorless, and does 120 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aegislash is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Honedge into play and then evolve it into Doublade before you can evolve Doublade into Aegislash, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of these cards are below average so they should definitely not be used without Aegislash, and like I mentioned earlier, there are two Aegislash cards in this set, so you'll have to wait until tomorrow's review to know which one I recommend using.  Of course though, if you want to utilize this card's Ability you'll want to use both Aegislash cards in your deck, so I can review this strategy tomorrow.  So all I really can go by on this card is the Buster Swing move, this move is really slow and can do a good amount of damage.  So this move fits in with the thinking of evolving Pokemon into Aegislash on the bench, then moving it into the active Pokemon spot and using Buster Swing every turn.  Because both Honedge and Doublade are so bad from this set, I wouldn't recommend using more than 1 each of the Pokemon in this line.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a slightly above average stage 2 Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  I like its one and only move, albeit slow, it is quite good.  Besides the one good move, it does have a decent hp and a very average retreat cost which will make this card definitely one to consider in a metal type deck.  With that being said, I cannot give this Pokemon family, Honedge, Doublade, and Aegislash more than a 2 out of 5 rating.  Indivudally, Doublade was a 1, Honedge a 2, and Aegislash a 4.
