Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dodrio from the Pokemon XY Card Set. Dodrio is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy retreat cost. Dodrio does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Rage, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on Dodrio. Dodrio's second move is called Endeavor, this move requires three colorless energy cards, and does 50 damage, plus 20 more damage for each heads you get when you flip two coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dodrio is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Doduo into play (I reviewed Doduo from this set yesterday) and then evolve Doduo into Dodrio. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Doduo was a pretty poor basic Pokemon card so because of this, if you decide to use Dodrio in your deck, I would make sure to set up Doduo and evolve it into Dodrio on the bench and because Doduo is so bad, I would only use a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family in any type deck. When using this card, you'll definitely want to have three energy cards on it so you can do Endeavor every turn until Dodrio has a significant amount of damage on it then you can use Rage instead.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set. Besides being able to be used in any type deck out there, this card has two good moves and a low retreat cost, so it is a pretty good card. However, if you look at this card with its basic evolution in Doduo, it would be hard for me to give this Pokemon family more than a 3 out of 5 rating. I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere for a good Doduo card to use.
