Doublade -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Doublade Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Doublade from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card set.  Doublade is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Doublade does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called False Swipe, for two colorless energy cards this move if you get a heads when flipping a coin, allows you to put damage counters on the defending Pokemon until its remaining HP is 10.  Doublade's second move is called Slash and for three energy cards, two metal and one colorless, this move does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Doublade is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Honedge into play (I reviewed Honedge from this set yesterday) and then evolve Honedge into Doublade.  Doublade does have a stage 2 evolution in Aegislash that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Doublade is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review of Honedge, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card.  The main reason being the only move it had could only confuse the defending Pokemon, not for sure do damage every turn, plus the fact that the retreat cost on Honedge was more than its attack cost.  So knowing this about Honedge and looking at this Doublade card, you could easily set this line up on the bench, get two energy cards on Doublade, wait until the defending Pokemon has an extremely high HP, like 200+, then move Doublade into the active Pokemon spot and use False Swipe, doing 190+ damage for only two energy cards.  The only thing you have to be weary of when using this card is that it has a pretty low HP and could easily be knocked out in one turn.  I would make sure to use Switch trainer cards to retreat this card so you could use False Swipe on multiple Pokemon.  I wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line of these two Pokemon in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card's HP is lower than I'd like, but it does have two moves that both are average to well above average, as long as Doublade isn't knocked out in one turn, this card is phenomenal and can do major damage for only two energy cards.  Combined with Honedge from this set, I would give these two Pokemon a 3 out of 5 rating, they could definitely be used in a deck together without Aegislash.

Doublade does not rely on levels to evolve into Aegislash. Instead, Doublade evolves into Aegislash when Doublade is exposed to a Dusk Stone.

Doublade evolves into Aegislash when exposed to a Dusk Stone so the earliest level it can evolve is at level 35 after Doublade evolves from Honedge at level 35.

Level 35. As soon as Doublade evolves from Honedge, Doublade evolves into Aegislash when exposed to a Dusk Stone.

Doublade evolves to Aegislash when is exposed to a Dusk Stone so the evolution doesn't depends on the Dublade level.

You need to level Doublade up to level 35 and then give it a Dusk Stone and it will evolve

No level. The earliest is when Honedge evolves into Doublade at Level 35. You must expose Doublade to a Dusk Stone.
