Bagon 55/108 -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Bagon Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bagon from the Roaring Skies set.  Bagon is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Bagon does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability but this Bagon card does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Leer, for one colorless energy card this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Bagon's second move is called Almost Fight, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of fire and water, and does 30 damage, however Bagon does do 10 damage to itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bagon is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Shelgon, and a Stage 2 evolution in Salamance, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will write like I plan on using Bagon on its own, however I will compare both Bagon cards at the end of this section.  So, on its own, I can not recommend using this card in a deck, I say this mainly because Bagon is a little slower on the attack to do any damage and even though this card has an average HP, if you use Almost Fight several times, you'll get knocked out pretty fast.  I wouldn't recommend using either Bagon card from this set on their own, but if you had to choose one to use with the rest of this Pokemon line, this card would be better than yesterday's mainly because this card can for sure do damage every turn when attacking whereas yesterday's card was based on a coin flip, so in the case you have to put Bagon into the active Pokemon spot, this card would fair better.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  There are some positives about this card, mainly its HP which is average and the fact it has two moves.  I would have liked to see this card be able to attack for only one energy and do damage, but the move that requires two energy cards on this card does do above average damage although it damages Bagon which is the reason I'm giving this card a lower rating.  So if stuck between which Bagon card to use from this set, use this card.
