Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Diggersby from the Pokemon XY Card Set. Diggersby 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 two colorless energy retreat cost. Diggersby does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Pickup, for two colorless energy cards, this move allows you to move 2 item cards from your discard pile and put them back into your hand. Diggersby's second move is called Dig, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 50 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, all effects of an attack from your opponent during their next turn are prevented.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Diggersby is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bunnelby into play (I reviewed Bunnelby from this set yesterday) and then evolve Bunnelby into Diggersby. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Bunnelby was an average to slightly below average Pokemon card that could be used on its own because of the fact it could prevent your opponent from attacking. This Diggersby card is pretty similar to Bunnelby because of its Dig move, it can just do more damage. So if you decide to use Bunnelby in your deck, I would make a 1-1 line of Bunnelby and Diggersby. You can still use the strategy of getting this line into the active Pokemon spot quickly and then making your opponent unable to attack with Dig.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set. This card is getting a little lower rating from me because I gave Bunnelby a higher rating yesterday and didn't want both of the Pokemon in this line to have a higher rating than they should be. Like I said in the strategy section of this post, if you use Bunnelby, I would highly recommend using Diggersby in your deck because it has a good hp, and Dig is a pretty decent move if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Altogether, I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating.
