Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Diggersby from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set. Diggersby is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Diggersby does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is Ear Dig, for one fighting energy card, this move allows you to discard an energy card from your opponent's deck for each heads you get when you flip a coin until you get a tails. Diggersby's second move is called Hammer In, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 70 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Diggersby is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bunnelby into play (there are two Bunnelby cards in this set, both colorless type, and I have not reviewed them yet) and then evolve Bunnelby into Diggersby. You'll have to read my reviews of Bunnelby in a few weeks to know what I think of each of them. Just looking at Diggersby though, this card isn't too bad overall and could be used in a deck since its main move, Hammer In, does do above average damage and the card has a high HP. However, this card does have a high retreat cost, the same as the amount of energy cards required to use Hammer In, so if you retreat it, it will take awhile to set it up again. I am not the biggest fan of Ear Dig, possibly late in games it could be useful if your opponent is running low on cards in their deck, but other than that, I would not use it. So I personally, probably would not use this card in a deck, it has too high of a retreat cost and is too slow on the attack for a Stage 1 Pokemon card, at least too slow to do any damage.
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 its high HP and its move, Hammer In, which does above average damage. However, this card has a high retreat cost, and a poor first move that may end up doing absolutely nothing every turn. So if you're building a fighting type deck, this card is usable, but it isn't recommended.
