Gorebyss 52/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Gorebyss Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gorebyss from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two Gorebyss cards I've reviewed on my blog.  This Gorebyss is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gorebyss does not have an Ability but it does have an Ancient Trait called Growth, this says that when you attach an energy card from your hand to Gorebyss you may attach two energy cards instead of one.  Besides the Ancient Trait, Gorebyss just has one move called Psy Bolt, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gorebyss is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Clamperl into play (I reviewed Clamperl from this set three days ago) and then evolve Clamperl into Gorebyss.  If you read my review of Clamperl, you'll know that I thought that card was a very poor Basic Pokemon card, it had a below average HP, and only one move that couldn't do any damage and although it prevented damage done to it less than 50, late in the game, that card was asking for a one hit knock out.  So knowing this about Clamperl, and also knowing that I gave Huntail, the other Stage 1 form of Clamperl a 5 out of 5 rating the other day, and the first of the two Gorebyss cards a 3 out of 5 rating, this Gorebyss card is a little worse in my opinion than yesterday's Gorebyss card, it does have a free retreat cost and can do less damage, potentially than the other Gorebyss card.  The only thing this card has going for it, is that you can basically do 30 damage one turn since you can put two energy cards on Gorebyss at one time due to its Ancient Trait.  But overall, I wouldn't recommend using this Gorebyss card in a deck, if you're really a fan of Gorebyss I would use yesterday's card, but I would much rather use Huntail instead of one of the Gorebyss 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 and just a little worse than yesterday's Gorebyss card.  This card does have an average HP, but it is just limited in what it can do only having one move.  But since it does have an Ancient Trait, Gorebyss's only move is pretty quick and does do above average damage.  So overall, like I concluded in the strategy section, I would recommend using Clamperl and Huntail the most, probably not either of the Gorebyss cards.  Combined with Clamperl, I can't give this combination of Clamperl and Gorebyss more than a 2 out of 5 rating.

Hey, still havent recieved my code, just letting u know...

Kai Tung Ng said...

Aleksander, you'll have to go to the Youtube homepage, click your icon on the top right hand corner, then click Creator Studio. Afterwards, in the left, there is a part with COMMUNITY written on it. Click it. Then, click Messages underneath it. It probably is in Likely spam, so click that, and input the code into the PTCGO. I know what you're feeling, I was like that too a month ago, I couldn't find it either.

Congrats to Emir Mehovic for winning!

Aleksandar Stanojevic said...

Kai Tung Ng said...

Are you sure? Check Likely spam again, and if you can't, send a message to PrimetimePokemon. Go to https://www.youtube.com/user/PrimetimePokemon/about and send a message; it's at the bottom of the page.

Aleksandar Stanojevic said...
