Aegislash -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Aegislash Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aegislash from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Aegislash is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aegislash's Ability is called Miracle Guard and says that your Pokemon in play have no weaknesses.  Outside of the Ability, Aegislash just has one move called Protect Charge, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one metal, and does 80 damage, plus any damage done to Aegislash during the opponent's next turn is reduced by 20.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aegislash is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Honedge into play and then evolve it into Doublade before you can evolve Honedge into Aegislash, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought Honedge was a below average Basic Pokemon card mainly because the only move it had was to confuse the defending Pokemon and its retreat cost was higher than its attack cost.  However, I was a big fan of Doublade from this set and its False Swipe move attacking the defending Pokemon until it only has 10 damage left, together I gave these two cards a 4 out of 5 rating and they could be used without Aegislash.  But looking at this Aegislash card, this card would definitely benefit the first two Pokemon in this line, this card doesn't have a move like False Swipe, but its Ability will help out your entire bench and active Pokemon and the one move it does have does do above average damage and should make Aegislash's HP even higher than it already is.  If I were building a metal type deck, I would focus on Doublade most since that is the card that can do the most amount of damage, but I may try my luck at having a 2-2-1 line of this family, that way I could keep one line on the bench to utilize Aegislash's Ability and the other line I could use Doublade as the final evolution.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card has plenty of good things going for it, like its high HP, and powerful move.  However, this card does just have the one move and its retreat cost is high, so it doesn't warrant more than one of these being used in a deck.  Altogether, I am pretty impressed with this Pokemon family from the Primal Clash set and would give the entire line a 4 out of 5 rating.
