Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kakuna from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card set. Kakuna is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Kakuna does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Bug Bite which does 20 damage for one grass energy card.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kakuna is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Weedle into play (I reviewed Weedle from this set yesterday) and then evolve Weedle into Kakuna. Kakuna does have a stage 2 evolution in Beedrill 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 Kakuna is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review of Weedle, you'll know that I thought that card was an extremely poor Basic Pokemon card, not only could it do no damage at all, it had a low HP, and the only move it had was to be able to put more Weedle cards into play. So knowing this about Weedle and looking at this Kakuna card, you could potentially use a 1-1 line of Weedle and Kakuna in a deck if you can quickly evolve Weedle into Kakuna, that way you could do 20 damage a turn for only one energy card. However, because Weedle is so bad from this set, I cannot really recommend using the first two Pokemon in this line together without considering Beedrill.
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 Primal Clash set. Even though this card has a good move, that is quick and does above average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires, I am still giving this card a below average rating because Kakuna has a lower HP, really high retreat cost, and is limited in what it can do. So together with Weedle from this set, I can only give these two cards a 1 rating, stay away from them at all costs.
