Lombre -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Lombre Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lombre from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card set.  Lombre 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 two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lombre does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Hook, for one grass energy card this move does 20 damage.  Lombre's second move is called Beat, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lombre is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lotad into play (I reviewed Lotad from this set yesterday) and then evolve Lotad into Lombre.  Lombre does have a stage 2 evolution in Ludicolo that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, there are two of them, the strategy below will act like Lombre is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review of Lotad, you'll know that I thought that card was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card, mainly because the only move it had required two energy cards to use instead of one, but overall it was still a pretty decent card.  So knowing this about Lotad and looking at this Lombre card, if you're building a grass type deck, I would definitely recommend considering a 1-1 line of these two Pokemon.  Both Pokemon have good moves, and don't require many energy cards to attack.  So ideally, I would get Lotad in the active Pokemon spot to start the game, wait a turn without attacking to get two energy cards on Lotad and either use its move that does 20 damage or evolve it into Lombre and use Beat every turn doing 30 damage.  These two Pokemon aren't very flashy, but if you need some more Pokemon in your deck, that can attack fairly quickly, and do solid damage, I would recommend these two cards.

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 Primal Clash set.  The only thing I dislike about this card is its low HP, other than that, this card has two solid moves, both doing above average damage.  Combined with Lotad from this set, I would give both a 3 out of 5 rating, I did give Lotad a 2 rating, so Lombre pulls this line up, rating wise.
