Bibarel -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Bibarel Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bibarel from the Pokemon XY Card Set.  Bibarel is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy retreat cost.  Bibarel does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Double Headbutt, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.  Bibarel's second move is called Hypno Headbutt, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if you decide to put Bibarel to sleep after the turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bibarel is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bidoof into play (I reviewed Bidoof from this set yesterday) and then evolve Bidoof into Bibarel.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Bidoof was a very poor basic Pokemon card that shouldn't be used without Bibarel and if you decide to use this Pokemon family and get Bidoof into the active Pokemon spot before evolving you better hope you get lucky and flip a heads or you can get Bibarel into play otherwise Bidoof really can't do anything.  So taking that into account, I would not recommend using either Pokemon from this Pokemon family in the X and Y set.  Bibarel although it has a good hp, is pretty slow to attack and neither move in my opinion is above average.  So if you can find a different Bidoof card to use, I could see using a 1-1 or 2-1 line of this family but the high retreat cost on this card is really holding me back on wanting to use it.  Of course if you get this card into your deck and into the active Pokemon spot, I would use Hypno Headbutt every turn and make sure to include trainer cards in my deck that would remove the Asleep special condition.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Other than the high retreat cost, this card is pretty average overall.  It has a good hp, can fit into any type deck because it is a colorless type card, and has two moves that can both do a fair amount of damage.  However, looking at both Bidoof and Bibarel from this set, I would give this cards only a 2 out of 5 rating, I wouldn't use them in a deck.  Individually, Bidoof was a 1, Bibarel a 3.
