Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Loudred from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card set. Loudred is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Loudred does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Smash Kick and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage. Loudred's second move is called Stomp and for three colorless energy cards, this move does 40 damage plus if you get a heads 40 more damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Loudred is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Whismur into play (I reviewed Whismur from this set yesterday) and then evolve Whismur into Loudred. Loudred does have a Stage 2 evolution in Exploud, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, 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 Loudred is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my review of Whismur, you'll know that I thought it was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card overall. It had a solid HP and two moves, but really could only do 10 damage a turn, which made it pretty limited, plus add in a higher retreat cost and it was a card that I wouldn't be using in a deck. So knowing this about Whismur and looking at this Loudred card, I can't recommend using the first two Pokemon in this line. Like Whismur, Loudred has a solid HP and two moves, but both moves that this card has are very weak, and Smash Kick is similar to what you'd find on a Basic Pokemon. So unless you're just in love with this line of Pokemon, don't use this line in your deck. Of course if you do use Loudred in your deck, your best chance when attacking would be to attach a Trick Coin trainer to this card and test your luck when using Stomp hoping to do 80 damage a turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set. Like I said in the strategy section of this post, this card has some positives about it, like a solid HP and two moves, but neither move that this card has is that great, making this card below average overall, same goes for Whismur from this set and together they would get a 2 out of 5 rating.
