Bunnelby 121/160 -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Bunnelby Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bunnelby from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of the two Bunnelby cards I've reviewed from this set.  Bunnelby is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This Bunnelby card does have an Ancient Trait called Barrage that says Bunnelby may attack twice in a row, even if the defending Pokemon is knocked out.  Besides the Ancient Trait, Bunnelby has two moves, the first is called Burrow and for one colorless energy card this move allows you to discard the top card of your opponent's deck.  Bunnelby's second move is called Rototiller, this move also requires one colorless energy card and allows you to shuffle a card from your discard pile back into your deck.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bunnelby is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Diggersby, which I've reviewed previously, if you read my review of Diggersby, you'll know that I thought it had a good HP and one good move, albeit slow, but that it had a high retreat cost, making the card below average overall.  So knowing this about Diggersby and also knowing that the previous Bunnelby card from this set I gave a 2 out of 5 rating, mainly because it only had one move and it was a slower, coin flip based move at that, this card will have to be much better than both of those cards to warrant use.  However, the first thing you'll notice with this card is that it can't do any damage, both moves it has, affect the discard pile or deck, so both moves have their use, but I don't know if I would make Bunnelby a mainstay in any deck that I would build.  I would much rather use Trainer cards similar to each of Bunnelby's moves in a deck, therefore leaving the active Pokemon spot for a Pokemon that does damage.  So overall, comparing the two Bunnelby cards from this set, neither are great, yesterday's does do some damage so that is the Bunnelby I would recommend, if you want to get fancy in your deck and basically recycle cards, this Bunnelby card could be used and Rototiller would be the main move used.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card is definitely unique in what it can do, plus both moves it does have require only one colorless energy making this card quick and versatile.  But overall, this card isn't that great in my opinion, it can't do any damage and neither move it has is that great.  So again, rating the entire Pokemon family of Bunnelby and Diggersby from the Primal Clash set, I would give them a 2 out of 5 rating, there are much better cards to use out there.
