Zweilous -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Zweilous Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zweilous from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card set.  Zweilous is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Zweilous does not have an Ability and it only has one move, the only move that this card has is called Slam, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and psychic, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zweilous is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Deino into play (I reviewed Deino from this set yesterday) and then evolve Deino into Zweilous.  Zweilous does have a stage 2 evolution in Hydreigon 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 Zweilous is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review of Deino, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card mainly because of its low HP, and the fact the only move it had required two distinct types of energy cards and it couldn't attack for only one energy card.  So knowing this about Deino and looking at this Zweilous card, I would not recommend using this card in a deck without using Hydreigon.  I say this because Zweilous again, like Deino requires two distinct types of energy cards to attack, plus its only move, may end up doing no damage at all every single turn.  So I cannot recommend a strategy at all to use with this card because there is not a situation where I would recommend using Deino and Zweilous without using Hydreigon, and then I would set up the entire line on the bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a well below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  Besides having an average HP, everything else on this card are well below average.  Its only move may end up doing zero damage every turn, and this card requires two unique energy cards to attack, thus making this card need a pretty specific deck to use.  So combining with Deino from this set, both are below average, and would get a 1 out of 5 rating from me, stay away from both Pokemon cards.

The answer is false. Hydreigon is the evolved form of Zweilous and has always been a rare or rare holo card. Zweilous has always been an uncommon card.
