Dusclops -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Dusclops Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dusclops from the Flashfire Pokemon Card set.  Dusclops is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Dusclops does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Confuse Ray, for one psychic energy card this move confuses the defending Pokemon.  Dusclops's second move is called Cursed Drop, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and allows you to put 4 damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way that you'd like.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dusclops is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Duskull into play (I reviewed Duskull from this set yesterday) and then evolve Duskull into Dusclops.  Dusclops does have a stage 2 evolution in Dusknoir that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Dusclops is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review of Duskull, you'll know that I thought it was an average Pokemon card, even though it had a low hp and could only do 10 max damage, I still gave the card an average rating because it could move one of your opponent's discarded Pokemon from their discard pile onto their bench.  This Dusclops card has a similar feel to it as Duskull did, it can only do 40 damage but it is still a card worth considering when building a psychic type deck and especially a deck that has a spread damage theme to it.  So I would definitely consider using a 2-2 or 2-1 line of Duskull and Dusclops in a deck together, I would keep one of the Duskull cards for later in the game to move a weak discarded Pokemon to your opponent's bench and I would use the other one to evolve into Dusclops, and then use Cursed Drop most turns to either knock out Pokemon that are on your opponent's bench, or to spread damage around so that you can knock out those Pokemon later.

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 Flashfire set.  Just like yesterday's Duskull card, this card really isn't that great, because it only has 80 hp, a higher retreat cost, and can only do up to 40 damage, but the reason I'm giving this card an average rating is because it can spread damage around, and when you're doing this, 40 damage is quite a bit of damage to spread around.  So together, I would give the combination of Duskull and Dusclops, which both received 3 ratings individually, a 3 rating together.  These two Pokemon are very solid together.
