Probopass -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Probopass Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Probopass from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Probopass is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Probopass does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Triple Smash, for one metal energy, this move does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 3 coins.  Probopass's second move is called Reinforced Nose, this move requires three energy cards to use, two metal and one colorless, and does 50 damage plus 50 more damage if a Pokemon Tool card is attached to it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Probopass is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Nosepass into play, I reviewed Nosepass a couple of weeks back since it was a fighting type Pokemon, and then evolve Nosepass into Probopass.  If you read my review of Nosepass, you'll know that I thought it was a well below average Basic Pokemon, it did have a good HP, but other than that, neither move it had was that great, both were slow, and both were underwhelming.  So knowing this about Nosepass and looking at this Probopass card, you'll definitely want to set this line up on the bench if you want to use it in your deck, since Nosepass is pretty poor.  You'll definitely want to attach a Trick Coin trainer card to this card so Triple Smash has a better chance of doing more damage, other than that, this card isn't worth putting three energy cards on unless you are using Pokemon Tool cards in your deck and thus can do 100 damage a turn with Reinforced Nose.  I personally wouldn't use this line in a deck, since both have high retreat costs and to for sure do damage you need at least 3 energy cards.  But if you choose to, do not use more than a 1-1 line.

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.  There are some positives on this card like its high HP and the fact it has two moves, that could do up to 90 and 100 damage respectively, but this card is slow on the attack and requires coin flips to attack, so unless you are willing to take some risk using this card I would look elsewhere.  Together with Nosepass from this set, I would give these two a 2 out of 5 rating, there are better Pokemon lines to use.

There is one Probopass card in the English XY series of expansions. You can tell why there's only one, just by the weird artwork.
