Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragalge from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set. Dragalge is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Dragalge's Ability is called Poison Barrier and says that if your opponent's active Pokemon is poisoned it can't retreat. Besides the Ability, Dragalge just has the one move called Poison Breath, this move requires three energy cards, one each of psychic, water, and colorless, and does 60 damage, plus when you use this move, if you get a heads when you flip a coin, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dragalge is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Skrelp into play (I reviewed Skrelp from this set awhile ago since it is a psychic type Pokemon card) and then evolve Skrelp into Dragalge. If you read my review on Skrelp from this set, you'll know that I thought that card was a pretty miserable Basic Pokemon card and one that should not be used in a deck on its own, so if you choose to use this Dragalge card in a deck, make sure to keep Skrelp on the bench and evolve it into Dragalge there. If you really want to use this line in a deck, I would recommend using it in a dual type deck of water and psychic Pokemon and try and have quite a few Pokemon that can poison the defending Pokemon. That way, if you get Dragalge onto your bench, you can utilize its Ability and make the active Pokemon unable to retreat, then if you use some spread damage in your deck, you can stack up the damage on all of your opponent's Pokemon, and your opponent really can't do anything about it if they can't retreat. As far as actually using Dragalge in the active Pokemon spot, the only move it has is a decent one, but I would definitely have the three energy cards on Dragalge before putting it in the active Pokemon spot. Because I would use this card for its Ability mainly, I wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line of Skrelp and Dragalge in a deck, but I would have to think long and hard if I'd even use them in a deck.
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. I like that this card has an above average hp, and low retreat cost, it has a solid Ability that can really aid a deck that can poison Pokemon quite a bit, and then the one move Dragalge has is an average move that can poison the defending Pokemon if you get lucky when using the move. Together with Skrelp from this set, I would give these two cards a 2 out of 5 rating, Skrelp was a 1 for me, and Dragalge was a 3, so if you can find a Skrelp card that isn't in the set, I would more highly recommend using this line in a deck.
