Aegislash #86/146 -- 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 second of two 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 King's Shield, this move requires four energy cards, two metal and two colorless, and does 50 damage plus prevents all damage done to this Pokemon during your opponent's next turn.

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 few days.  Both of these cards are below average so they should definitely not be used without Aegislash.  However, this Aegislash card is just as bad in my opinion as the first two Pokemon cards in this set.  Even though there are two Aegislash cards in this set that both have the Stance Change Ability meaning you can rotate them in and out of the active Pokemon spot when you want, this card isn't good enough to warrant using that Ability.  So if you desperately want to use this Pokemon family in a deck, do not use this Aegislash card, instead go ahead and read yesterday's review of Aegislash.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very miserable stage 2 Pokemon card from this set.  Not only does this card have a very poor move, but the move can only be used every other turn and the 2 Pokemon that come before it are pretty miserable.  So do not use this Pokemon family at all if you want to use this card.  Overall, I would give the entire line a 1 out of 5 rating.  Indivually both Doublade and Aegislash were 1s and Honedge was a 2.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Aegislash from the X and Y set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the first of two Jigglypuff cards, which are from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

You liked the #85/146 blade form Aegislash better because it has Buster Swing which does a lot of damage and ignores resistance.
