Vibrava -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Vibrava Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vibrava from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card set.  Vibrava is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Vibrava does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Sand Attack, for one colorless energy card this move does 20 damage plus if the defending Pokemon tries attacking during their next turn, your opponent must flip a coin, and they can only attack if they flip a heads.  Vibrava's second move is called Super Vibration, this move requires three energy cards to use, one each of fighting, grass, and colorless, and it does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vibrava is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Trapinch into play (I reviewed Trapinch from this set a couple of weeks ago) and then evolve Trapinch into Vibrava.  Vibrava does have a stage 2 evolution in Flygon 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 Vibrava is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Trapinch from this set, it is a fighting type Pokemon card and it would make for a solid starter type Pokemon in a deck, it has a good HP, low retreat cost, and two quick, average attacking power moves.  So knowing this about Trapinch and looking at this Vibrava card, I am a fan of Sand Attack on this card, it does some damage but it is a very defensive move, possibly disabling your opponent from attacking.  In my opinion, this Vibrava card would be a perfect stepping stone to using Flygon, but just using Trapinch and Vibrava without Flygon isn't recommended, I would either use just Trapinch or the entire Pokemon line.  I am not a huge fan of Super Vibration just because it requires two different energy types and does average damage for the amount of energy required.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a slightly below average, yet still average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card definitely doesn't blow me away and make me want to use it in a deck, but it isn't bad overall, outside of having just a little lower HP than I'd like, this card does have two decent moves, and a low retreat cost.  Paired with Trapinch from this set, I would give both combined only a 2 out of 5 rating, I think this line will improve greatly with the introduction of Flygon.
