Doublade -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Doublade Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Doublade from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Doublade is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Doublade does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Dual Blades, this move requires two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Doublade is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Honedge into play (I reviewed Honedge from this set yesterday) and then evolve Honedge into Doublade.  Doublade does have a stage 2 evolution in Aegislash that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed either of the Aegislash cards from this set yet I will right this strategy section as if Double is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Honedge was an average Pokemon card but was extremely limited thus not meriting use on its own.  Because of this and the fact that Doublade has a low hp and only one move, I would not use the first two Pokemon in this family of Pokemon without using Aegislash.  If you choose to use the first two Pokemon in this line, definitely don't use more than a 2-1 line of Honedge and Doublade and use whichever move you can from the card you have in play.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a pretty miserable stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Not only is this card extremely limited by only having one move and no Ability, but the only move it does have may end up doing no damage at all since the move depends on coin flips.  If you get lucky and do 60 damage that is above average, but with a Pokemon that only has 80 hp, I wouldn't risk using the card in your deck to possibly do above average on one turn.  So overall, I would give the line of Honedge and Doublade from this set a 1 out of 5 rating, Honedge was a 2 and Doublade a 1.  I would just recommend staying away from this line, especially without Aegislash.

Doublade does not evolves into Aegislash by leveling instead it evolves when exposed to a Dusk Stone.
