Flygon -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Flygon Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Flygon from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Flygon is a stage 2, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Flygon's Ability is called Sand Flap and says that during your turn, you may choose to or have your opponent shuffle their hand into their deck and draw 4 new cards.  Besides the Ability, Flygon only has one move called Sand Tomb, for three energy cards, one each of grass, fighting, and colorless, this move does 80 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Flygon is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Trapinch into play and then evolve it into Vibrava before you can evolve Vibrava into Flygon, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them in the past.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both Trapinch and Vibrava were average cards individually, but together just didn't have enough power to be used in a deck without Flygon, but Trapinch could be used as a starter type Pokemon because it had an average HP, and two decent moves.  So knowing about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at the final one, this card stays in line being average overall.  There isn't anything that I dislike about this card, just nothing that really stands out.  Sand Tomb is a good move, that does above average damage, but it does require two different types of energy to use and it is the only attack Flygon has.  Flygon's Ability is good, since it can affect both the opponent and yourself.  But overall, unless you're really in love with this Pokemon family, I would not recommend building a deck around this line, and if you want to use it in a deck, only using a 2-1-1 line of this family, using Trapinch as a starter type Pokemon, then doing 60 damage a turn with Vibrava and 80 damage a turn with Flygon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, Flygon is solid overall, having nothing that is extremely powerful, but nothing terrible either.  This card as well as the two forms of it prior are average together, and would get a 3 out of 5 rating combined from me, they could be used in a deck, but definitely not ones to build around.
