Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragalge from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set. Dragalge is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Dragalge does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Severe Poison, for one psychic type energy card this move poisons the defending Pokemon and allows you to put 4 damage counters on that Pokemon instead of 1 in between turns. Dragalge's second move is called Dragon Pulse and for two energy cards, one each of water and psychic, this move does 60 damage, however you must discard the top card of your deck.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dragalge is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Skrelp into play (I reviewed Skrelp previously) and then evolve Skrelp into Dragalge. If you read my review of Skrelp, you'll know that I thought that card was a very poor Basic Pokemon card, it was a psychic type card and a card that had a low HP and only one move that was based on a coin flip and couldn't do any damage regardless if you had a heads or tails. So knowing this about Skrelp and looking at this Dragalge card, the first thing you'll want to take into account is that this card's Dragon Pulse move requires two distinct energy types, so if you are building this dual type deck, this card is a good option for your deck, otherwise, I would just stick to Severe Poison. You could use a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family to start the game out, using Severe Poison every turn while giving time to set up your benched Pokemon, or if using a dual type deck, do major damage every turn for two energy cards. Even later in games, this card is good enough to hold up, so I would recommend at least considering this card when deck building.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a slightly above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set. The only downfall with this card is the fact its HP is a bit higher, but other than that, this card has an above average HP, and two very good moves. Together with Skrelp from this set, I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating and it is definitely a line that should be considered for a deck.
