Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Crawdaunt from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set. Crawdaunt is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Crawdaunt's Ability is called Unruly Claw, it says when you evolve Corphish into Crawdaunt, you may discard an energy card from your opponent's active Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Crawdaunt just has one move called Crabhammer, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one darkness, and does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Crawdaunt is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Corphish into play, I reviewed Corphish a couple of weeks back since it was a water type Pokemon, and then evolve Corphish into Crawdaunt. If you read my review of Corphish, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set. It did have an average HP, low retreat cost, and two moves, but it was under powered overall, thus the 2 out of 5 rating. So knowing this about Corphish, and also knowing Corphish requires only colorless energy cards to attack, looking at this Crawdaunt card, I would say it is similar to Corphish in that it has an average HP, lower retreat cost, and a bounty of things it can do having an Ability and one move, but overall it definitely isn't better than average. When you do evolve Corphish into Crawdaunt its Ability will work, but it is a one time use, and then Crabhammer, although a little slower, doesn't do more than average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires. So unless you're building a darkness type deck and are really low on Pokemon to use, I would look elsewhere for a line of Pokemon for it. Because all you can do with this card is set it up on the bench and then do 60 damage a turn in the active Pokemon spot, a lot of cards can do that.
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. This card definitely has some positives about it, like the fact it has an Ability and a move that does 60 damage a turn, however, it just doesn't impress me as a whole, similar to the way I felt about Corphish, so for that reason, I would give these two Pokemon combined, from the Primal Clash set, a 2 out of 5 rating.
