Duskull -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Duskull Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Duskull from the Flashfire set.  Duskull is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Duskull does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Revival, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to move a Pokemon from your opponent's discard pile to their bench.  Duskull's second move is called Sneaky Placement, this move requires one psychic energy card and allows you to put 1 damage counter on your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Duskull is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Dusclops and a stage 2 evolution in Dusknoir, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I may use 1 of these cards in a deck but would more than likely use this card with the Pokemon in its family, but since I haven't reviewed those Pokemon yet I can't talk about that strategy.  I would probably wait more towards the end of the game to use Duskull, and I would make sure to have Duskull in a deck that does a lot of spread damage.  I would move Duskull into the active Pokemon spot for one turn, move the weakest Pokemon in your opponent's deck that had been knocked out, back onto their bench, hope Duskull doesn't get knocked out the next turn, then retreat it when Duskull can attack again.  By moving a weak Pokemon onto your opponent's bench, for example a Pokemon that has 40 hp, you should have a Pokemon that can do at least 40 damage to benched Pokemon and knock that Pokemon out in 1 turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  Even though this card is quite limited in what it can do, I am still giving this card an average rating because I think it can really aid the other Pokemon in your deck by moving a Pokemon from your opponent's discard pile onto their bench, and with a low retreat cost, you can easily move Duskull out of the active Pokemon spot when you put it in it.
