Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Graveler from the Flashfire Pokemon Card set. Graveler is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Graveler does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Double Edge, for three colorless energy cards this move does 60 damage, however it does do 20 damage to Graveler. Graveler's second move is called Rollout, this move requires four energy cards, two each of fighting and colorless, and does 80 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Graveler is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Geodude into play (I reviewed Geodude from this set yesterday) and then evolve Geodude into Graveler. Graveler does have a stage 2 evolution in Golem 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 Graveler is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review of Geodude you know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set and a card that could be used on its own because it could attack quickly for 10 damage or do up to 50 damage later in the game. Knowing this about Geodude and looking at this Graveler card, I would recommend either just using Geodude in your deck, or using the entire line of Geodude, Graveler, and Golem because Graveler just isn't that great of a card. If you do choose to use Graveler together with Geodude in your deck, you'll have to set up Graveler on the bench because it takes so long to attack and you'll want to use Rollout every turn once you get four energy cards on it.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set. Even though this card has an above average hp, and two moves which both can do a good amount of damage I am giving this card a below average rating because it is extremely slow, has a high retreat cost, and neither move it has is that great. Together with Geodude, I would give this Pokemon line so far, a 2 out of 5 rating, like I mentioned, I would much rather just use Geodude, which I gave a 3 rating, than pair it with Graveler.
