Conkeldurr -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Conkeldurr Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Conkeldurr from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Conkeldurr is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Conkeldurr does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Wake-Up Slap, this move requires one fighting energy card and does 30 damage plus if your opponent's active Pokemon is affected by a special condition, this move removes that condition from it and does 90 damage to it instead.  Conkeldurr's second move is called Dynamic Punch, this move requires three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, and does 60 damage plus 40 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin, plus if you get a heads the defending Pokemon is confused.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Conkeldurr is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Timburr into play and then evolve it into Gurdurr before you can evolve Gurdurr into Conkeldurr, 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 pretty good which means that even if this Conkeldurr card is just average I probably would still recommend using this Pokemon family in a deck.  So this Conkeldurr card is definitely better than average so I would recommend using a 3-2-2 line of this Pokemon family from the X and Y set in a fighting type deck.  This family shouldn't be your main Pokemon family, but more like a second tier family.  I would try and get one Timburr into the active Pokemon spot early and evolve it from there and then set one Timburr on the bench.  Whenever you have Conkeldurr in the active Pokemon spot you will definitely want to use Dynamic Punch when you can, I would only use Wake-Up Slap when I have less than three energy cards on Conkeldurr.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average card overall in the X and Y Pokemon card set.  I like both of Conkeldurr's moves, both do above average damage and more for the number of energy cards they require to attack.  So pair this above average card with two solid Basic and Stage 1 Pokemon and I would definitely recommend using this line in your deck.  Overall, I would give the line of Timburr, Gurdurr, and Conkeldurr a 4 out of 5 rating.  Individually, Timburr and Conkeldurr were 4s and Gurdurr was a 3.
