Clamperl -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Clamperl Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Clamperl from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Clamperl is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Clamperl does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Shell Protection.  This move requires one water energy card and makes it so any damage done to Clamperl during your opponent's next turn is prevented if the attack does 50 damage or less.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Clamperl is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Huntail, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, and a second stage 1 evolution in Gorebyss, you'll more than likely want to use this card with one or both of those Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its stage 1 forms.  So, on its own, I wouldn't highly recommend using this card in a deck.  I say this because Clamperl has a below average HP, and only one move, and the only move that this card does have cannot do any damage at all, it is mainly a defensive move.  However, if you are more of the the defensive style player, you could definitely use one of these Clamperl cards in a deck, try and get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, put one energy card on it, and try and prevent your opponent from attacking using Shell Protection while you get your own bench Pokemon set up.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Huntail or Gorebyss, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  The only thing this card can be used for is to stall your opponent from knocking you out and giving you time to set up your benched Pokemon, but with only 50 HP on the card and a higher retreat cost than attack cost, this card is just asking for trouble in your deck.  So I cannot recommend using this card in a deck without one of its two stage 1 forms.
