Bewear -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Bewear Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bewear from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Bewear is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 130. It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Bewear does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  This card's first move is called Bear Hug, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 40 damage, plus it makes the defending Pokemon unable to retreat during your opponent's next turn.  Superpower is the name of Bewear's second move, for three Colorless Energy cards this move does 80 damage plus 40 more damage if you do 20 damage to Bewear.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bewear is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Stufful into play (I reviewed Stufful from this set yesterday) and then evolve Stufful into Bewear.  If you read yesterday's review of Bewear, you'll know that I thought it was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card overall, although the card had an above average HP and could do 30 damage when attacking, both its attack cost and retreat cost required two Energy cards, so for a Basic Pokemon it was limited in what it could do and was somewhat slow.  So knowing this about Stufful and looking at this Bewear card, this card is also somewhat slow on the attack, so if you'd like to use this line in a deck, it would make more sense to use 1 of each and set them up on the Bench, that way you could move Bewear into the Active Pokemon spot immediately and do 80 plus damage.  This card can fit into any type deck since it requires only Colorless Energy to attack, and can be made quicker if Double Colorless Energy cards are used instead of Basic Energy.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Other than being a little slow on the attack, this card is solid overall, with a high HP, and two powerful moves.  Add this line into any deck lacking some power, especially if you're already using 4 Double Colorless Energy cards.  Together with Stufful from this set, I would give these two cards a 3 out of 5 rating.

Stufful -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Stufful Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stufful from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Stufful is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Stufful does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Tackle, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Stufful is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Bewear, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, the only way I would recommend using this card in a deck is if you're planning on having 4 Double Colorless Energy cards in your deck, that way, you could try and use Stufful as a starter type Pokemon, be able to attack for only one Special Energy card, doing 30 damage a turn, and only need one Special Energy card to retreat.  If you aren't using Special Energy, although Tackle is a decent move, I would look for a quicker Basic Pokemon to use in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Bewear, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I mentioned above, this card definitely has some use, however, since it can't attack for only one Basic Energy card, I cannot say this card is average, and it should not be used without using Bewear in your deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Gumshoos GX -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Gumshoos GX Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gumshoos GX from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Gumshoos GX is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 210.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Gumshoos GX has an Ability called Search the Premises that says once per turn, you may have your opponent reveal their hand.  Besides the Ability, Gumshoos GX has one regular move and one GX move.  Its regular move is called Headbutt Bounce, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 100 damage.  Gumshoos GX's GX move is called Gumshoe Chance GX, for one Colorless Energy card, this move does 10 damage plus 50 more damage times the amount of Energy attached to your opponent's Active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, first off, the way a Pokemon GX works is that it is used instead of a regular Gumshoos card, so you do not need to first play Gumshoos and then evolve it into Gumshoos GX, instead you can evolve Yungoos directly into Gumshoos GX.  In play, only one GX move can be used during the entire game, and once a Pokemon GX is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  If you read my review of Yungoos from this set, you'll know that I thought it was a very solid Basic Pokemon card overall, one that could be used on its own in a deck, specifically as a starter type Pokemon, since it could attack for only one Energy card, had a low retreat cost and an above average HP.  Knowing this about Yungoos and looking at this Gumshoos GX card, you could still use up to 4 Yungoos cards in a deck as starter Pokemon, but I would certainly include 1 Gumshoos GX card, mainly for its Ability, giving you the chance to see your opponent's hand every turn via Gumshoos GX's Ability is a great way to figure out your opponent's strategy, and potentially give you an advantage against them.  Although Headbutt Bounce does well above average damage, its GX move goes well with the idea of just keeping Gumshoos GX on the Bench, since you can move it to the Active Pokemon spot only when the defending Pokemon has multiple Energy cards on it, using Gumshoe Chance GX and knocking it out in one turn.  Overall, this is a very good GX card, and one I would recommend using in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon GX from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, this card works well both from the Bench, using its Ability and as an attacker, not only is its GX move good, but its regular move does a good amount of damage every turn.  Combined with Yungoos from this set, I would give these two cards a 5 out of 5 rating, I think combined, they are very good, and should certainly be in decks.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Yungoos -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Yungoos Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Yungoos from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Yungoos is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Yungoos does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Tackle, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 10 damage.  Bite is the name of Yungoos' second move, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Yungoos is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Gumshoos, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, this card would work well as a starter type Pokemon in almost any type deck, since it can attack for only one Energy card, and a Colorless type Energy at that.  Add in the fact that Yungoos has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and the ability to do up to 20 damage per turn, and although not a spectacular card by any means, it is one that should definitely be considered when deck building.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Gumshoos GX, this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I mentioned above, there isn't really anything spectacular about this card, but there aren't any negatives on the card either, so if you're looking for a very solid card to use in your deck, I would recommend this card.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Toucannon -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Toucannon Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Toucannon from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Toucannon is a Stage 2, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Toucannon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Echoed Voice, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 60 damage, plus it makes this move do 60 additional damage during your next turn.  Toucannon's second move is called Beak Blast, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 100 damage, plus Burns the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Toucannon is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pikipek into play and then evolve it into Trumbeak before you can evolve Trumbeak into Toucannon, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall.  Both Pikipek and Trumbeak had below average HP, and one move, both moves having the potential to do a fair amount of damage, but the cards were just limited overall in what they could do.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking Toucannon, this line would be a great one to use in any type deck, because both Pikipek and Trumbeak can attack for one Energy card, you could certainly use both in the Active Pokemon spot a turn then evolve them the next turn.  You could also set this line up on the Bench, whatever you decide to do, since all three Pokemon in this line only require Colorless Energy cards to attack, the line will fit into any type deck, and once you have Toucannon set up, it can do major damage, either 60 then 120 damage a turn, or 100 damage every turn plus the potential to Burn the defending Pokemon.  So, if you're looking for a good attacking Pokemon family for a deck, I would recommend this one.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Really, the only downside to this card is its slightly low HP of 140, otherwise, this card has two great moves, both having potential to do major damage.  Combine this card with Pikipek and Trumbeak from the set, and as a whole, I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, all three Pokemon work well together and should be considered when deck building.

Trumbeak -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Trumbeak Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Trumbeak from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set.  Trumbeak is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Trumbeak does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Bullet Seed, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Trumbeak is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pikipek into play (I reviewed Pikipek from this set yesterday) and then evolve Pikipek into Trumbeak.  Pikipek does have a Stage 2 evolution in Toucannon, 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 Trumbeak is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Pikipek, you'll know I thought that card was below average overall, mainly due to its low HP, other than that, the one move it did have was solid, doing up to 20 damage for only one Colorless Energy card.  So knowing this about Pikipek and looking at this Trumbreak card, this card is similar to its Basic evolution form, having one decent move, but a low HP.  Because of this, I would pass on using the first two Pokemon in this line without using Toucannon.  The only way I would use this line without Toucannon would be if you're already using multiple Trick Coin Trainer cards in your deck, that way, you have two chances at doing major damage when using Bullet Seed.

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 Sun and Moon set.  Similarly to Pikipek from yesterday, this card has the potential to do a good amount of damage when attacking, but because it has a low HP and only one move, I am giving it a below average rating overall.  Together with Pikepek, these two Pokemon get a 2 out of 5 rating from me.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Pikipek -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Pikipek Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pikipek from the Sun and Moon set.  Pikipek is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Pikipek does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Rock Smash, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 10 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pikipeak is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Trumbeak, and a Stage 2 evolution in Toucannon, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of 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 just act like Pikipek does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, although this card has potential to do above average damage as a starter type Pokemon in a deck, because it has a below average HP and its only move is based off of a coin flip, I would recommend passing on this card.  If you plan on using this Pikipek card to start off this line in a deck, it is a good start, just not that good of card on its own.

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 Sun and Moon set.  Like I stated above, the main thing working against this card is its below average HP, other than that, this card has a low retreat cost, and the potential to do up to 20 damage per turn when attacking.  On its own, I wouldn't recommend using this card, but it is a good start to the line.

Stoutland -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Stoutland Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stoutland from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Stoutland is a Stage 2, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Stoutland does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Ferocious Bellow, for three Colorless Energy cards this move does 50 damage, plus it makes the move your opponent uses during their next turn do 50 less damage.  Stoutland's second move is called Hammer In, for four Colorless Energy cards, this move does 120 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Stoutland is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lillipup into play and then evolve it into Herdier before you can evolve Herdier into Stoutland, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall.  Lillipup had a solid HP, and could do up to 40 damage per turn, but of the two moves it did have, only one could do damage, and that move required two Energy cards to attack.  Herdier was similar to Lillipup in that it had a solid HP and a low retreat cost, but Herdier's one move was slow and under-powered, the only reason you'd want to use the card was for its Ability, which you could utilize from the Bench.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this Stoutland card, if you want to use this entire line in a deck, I would set it up on the Bench, therefore utilizing Herdier's Ability and making it so Stoutland can attack as soon as it gets into the Active Pokemon spot, also, I would recommend using 4 Double Colorless Energy cards in your deck, so Stoutland could do 120 damage for only two Energy cards.

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 Sun and Moon set.  With the caveat of using Double Colorless Energy cards as opposed to Basic Energy cards, this card is very solid overall, able to do above average damage for both of its moves and having the potential to fit into any type deck, as well as be a more defensive card with its Ferocious Bellow move.  Altogether, with Lillipup and Herdier from this set, I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating, although Stoutland is solid, the first two Pokemon in this line weigh the entire line down too much.

Herdier -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Herdier Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Herdier from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set.  Herdier is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Herdier's Ability is called Treasure Hunt and says that when you play Herdier from your hand to evolve one of your Pokemon, you may put and Item card from your discard pile into your hand.  Besides the Ability, this card has just one move called Bite, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Herdier is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lillipup into play (I reviewed Lillipup from this set yesterday) and then evolve Lillipup into Herdier.  Lillipup does have a Stage 2 evolution in Stoutland, 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 Herdier is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Lillipup, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon overall, at least on its own.  The card couldn't be used as a starter type Pokemon since it required two Energy cards to attack, so it was slow, however, it could do up to 40 damage per turn for only two Colorless Energy cards and it did have an average HP and low retreat cost.  So knowing this about Lillipup and looking at this Herdier card, the only reason you'd want to play this card is for its Ability, since you can retrieve an Item card from your discard pile when evolving Lillipup into Herdier.  Herdier's only move, Bite, does below average damage, and there are lots of Pokemon out there that can do either more than 50 damage for three Energy cards, or do 50 damage for less than three Energy cards.  So, unless you can continuously evolve and devolve Herdier on the Bench, I would pass on using this line.

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 Sun and Moon set.  Similarly to Herdier, this card is somewhat solid overall, having a good HP, low retreat cost, plus one move and an Ability, but the only thing that is above average overall is its Ability, other than that, there is no reason to use this card.  Combined with Lillipup from this set, I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating.

Lillipup -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Lillipup Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lillipup from the Sun and Moon set.  Lillipup is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Lillipup does not have an Ability but the card does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Work Up, for one Colorless Energy card this move increases Lillipup's attacks by 20 during your next turn.  Lillipup's second move is called Bite, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lillipup is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Herdier, and a Stage 2 evolution in Stoutland, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of 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 just act like Lillipup does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, mainly because it is slow on the attack, requiring two Energy cards to attack.  Although you could use a Double Colorless Energy card to attack with this card, since Lillipup just has the one move that can do damage when attacking, it is best served on the Bench waiting for it to evolve into Herdier.

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 Sun and Moon set.  Like I stated above, since this card requires two Energy cards to attack, it isn't a good starter type Pokemon, with only 60 HP, making it useless later in games.  So my advice on this card would be to avoid it altogether unless you plan on using Herdier and Stoutland in your deck.

Spinda -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Spinda Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spinda from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Spinda is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  Spinda has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Spinda does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Teeter Punch, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 30 damage plus Confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spinda is a Basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Spinda.  So knowing this, this is essentially a perfect starter type Pokemon card to use in a deck, regardless of the type of deck you're building.  You can include 4 of these in a deck, getting it into the Active Pokemon spot to start the game, then not only doing above average damage the first turn, but Confusing the defending Pokemon, making them potentially unable to attack and doing damage to themselves as well.  The only downfall on this card is that it just has the one move, but with 80 HP, this card should even be able to hold its own later in games.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Other than just having the one move, this card is great, it has an above average HP, low retreat cost, and does above average damage for only one Energy card.  Add in the fact it inflicts a Special Condition when attacking, and I would highly recommend using this card in a deck.

Eevee -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Eevee Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Eevee from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Eevee is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Eevee's Ability is called Energy Evolution and says that when you attach a Basic Energy card from your hand to Eevee, you may search your deck for a Pokemon that evolves from Eevee that is the same type as the Energy card you just attached and evolve Eevee into that Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Eevee has just one move called Quick Draw, for one Colorless Energy card this move allows you to draw a card if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Eevee is a Basic Pokemon card with multiple Stage 1 evolution forms, you'll definitely want to use this card with those Pokemon, both Espeon and Umbreon GX are in the Sun and Moon set and I've reviewed them in the past.  On its own, there is not much of a reason to use this card, since its Ability benefits a player using one of Eevee's evolution forms, and its only move is based off of a coin flip a can't do damage when attacking.  But, if your plan is to use this card with an evolution of Eevee, this card is very solid, since it makes it very easy to evolve Eevee into that Pokemon, all you have to do is attach an Energy card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering any of the Eeveelutions, this card is below average, but considering a Stage 1 evolution, this card is solid overall, and certainly a card you'd want to use in a deck.  So like I mentioned above, this card has no use on its own, but is good otherwise.

Tauros GX -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Tauros GX Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tauros GX from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Tauros GX is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 180.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Tauros GX does not have an Ability but it does have three moves.  The first move that this card has is called Rage, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on Tauros GX.  This card's second move is called Horn Attack, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 60 damage.  The final attack on this card is called Mad Bull GX, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 30 damage times the number of damage counters on Tauros GX.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, first off, the way a Pokemon GX works is that it is used instead of a regular Tauros card, so you do not need to first play Tauros and then evolve it into Tauros GX.  In play, only one GX move can be used during the entire game, and once a Pokemon GX is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  The first thing you'll notice about this card is that all three moves require two Colorless Energy cards or one Double Colorless Energy card, so it is a very fast attacker, no matter the move you want use.  Because of this, this card would make an excellent starter for any type deck, outside of its high retreat cost.  This card would also work well on your Bench and then having a powerful move on another Pokemon that in addition to doing major damage to the defending Pokemon, it does damage to one or all of your own Benched Pokemon.  You could then keep Tauros on the Bench and accumalate damage there, then use its Mad Bull GX move doing up to 510 damage in one turn!  So if you're looking for a quick attacker, that has potential to one hit KO your opponent's Pokemon, this is a card that should be considered.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Pokemon GX overall.  Like I've mentioned several times in this review, I really like how quick this card is and how it has the potential to do major damage.  I know this card is over-powered, but that doesn't mean it isn't a great card to use in a deck!

Kangaskhan -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Kangaskhan Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kangaskhan from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Kangaskhan is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 130.  Kangaskhan has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Kangaskhan does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Cross-Cut, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if the defending Pokemon is an Evolution Pokemon.  Kangaskhan's second move is called Hurricane Punch, for four Colorless Energy cards this move does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kangaskhan is a Basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Kangaskhan.  So knowing this, this card is similar to the Fearow card from yesterday, you can just put one Energy card on Kangaskhan on the Bench then if the defending Pokemon is a Pokemon other than a Basic Pokemon you can move Kangaskhan into the Active Pokemon spot and do 60 damage per turn with Cross-Cut.  If you have a Trick Coin Trainer in your deck and some Double Colorless Energy cards, you could easily use Hurricane Punch for potentially 200 damage per turn.  Because you can set up Kangaskhan up on the Bench to use Cross-Cut and the fact Hurricane Punch requires so many Energy cards to use, I would recommend only using 1 of these in a deck, unless your set on using this card as a starter type Pokemon, then you could certainly use 4.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, there are a couple of different strategies to use with this card, since it can do major damage with both moves it has.  This card can also fit into any type deck out there as a starter type Pokemon doing 30 damage for only one Energy card.  Really, the only downside to this card is its high retreat cost, so you'll want to use a Switch Trainer to retreat it for free.

Fearow -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Fearow Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Fearow from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Fearow is a Stage 1, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Fearow does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  This card's first move is called Devastating Wind, for one Colorless Energy card this move makes your opponent shuffle their hand into their deck and draw three new cards.  Fearow's second move is called Slashing Strike, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 60 damage, however this move can't be used 2 turns in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Fearow is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Spearow into play (I reviewed Spearow from this set yesterday) and then evolve Spearow into Fearow.  If you read yesterday's review of Spearow, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card overall, it had a solid move, a low retreat cost, and although it only had one move, this move could do up to 40 damage per turn for only 1 Energy card.  So knowing this about Spearow and looking at this Fearow card, you could put this line into a deck that features a way to freely move Pokemon into and out of the Active Pokemon spot, that way you could use Slashing Strike every other turn and do 60 damage for only one Colorless Energy card.  Although I wish Devastating Wind was on a Basic Pokemon card, this move could ruin your opponent's strategy, especially early in games.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  The only real downside to this card is that it can only do damage when attacking every other turn, otherwise, this card has a solid HP, both moves it has can be used quickly, and it has a low retreat cost.  Overall, this line of Spearow and Fearow is solid, I would give the two cards a combined 3 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave each card individually.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Spearow -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Spearow Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spearow from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Spearow is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Spearow does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Peck Bugs, for one Colorless Energy this move does 10 damage, plus 30 more damage if your opponent's Active Pokemon is a Grass type Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spearow is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Fearow, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, this card could certainly be used as a starter type Pokemon in almost every type deck out there, since it can attack for only one Colorless Energy card.  You could also just keep one of these in a deck, put one Energy card on it on the Bench, and then if your opponent is using a Grass type Pokemon move Spearow to the Active Pokemon spot and do 40 damage for only one Energy card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Fearow, this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Other than being limited by only having one move, this card has a low retreat cost, solid HP, and a move that can do up to 40 damage for one Colorless Energy card, so it is definitely worth consideration when deck building.

Dragonite -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Dragonite Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragonite from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Dragonite is a Stage 2, Dragon type Pokemon card, with a HP of 160.  It has a x2 weakness to Fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Dragonite does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dragon Wave, for two Energy cards, one each of Grass and Lightning, this move does 130 damage, however, you must discard a Grass and Lightning type Energy from Dragonite after using this move.  Dragonite's second move is called Giant Tail, for five Colorless Energy cards this move does 200 damage, however, you must flip a coin when using this move, if you get a tails, the move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dragonite is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Dratini into play and then evolve it into Dragonair before you can evolve Dragonair into Dragonite, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall.  Without using Dragonite, both cards are just limited in what they can do, but when using Dragonite, both cards have moves that would benefit Dragonite, Dratini can get all three Pokemon in this line into your hand from your deck in one turn, and Dragonair can add an unlimited amount of Energy to itself when attacking.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at Dragonite, you'll definitely want to use Dragonair in the Active Pokemon spot first so that you can get a ton of Energy on it before evolving into Dragonite.  Yes, both of the moves on this Dragonite card can do major damage, but both moves require lots of Energy, and Dragon Wave makes you discard Energy cards after attacking too!  So, unless you're using 4 Trick Coin Trainer cards or have lots of Energy cards in your deck, I would be weary about using so many Energy cards on one specific Pokemon, because of this, if you're using this line in a deck, I would only use one of each.

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 Sun and Moon set.  This card has a solid HP, and two moves that both can do major damage, but because this card requires so much Energy to attack, and has a high retreat cost, you'll not want to use many of these in a deck.  I do like how well Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite from this set work together, because of that, I would give the entire line a 3 out of 5 rating.

Dragonair -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Dragonair Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragonair from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set.  Dragonair is a Stage 1, Dragon type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to Fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Dragonair does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dragon's Wish, for one Colorless Energy card this move allows you to attach any number of Energy cards from your hand to Dragonair during your next turn.  Dragonair's second move is called Tail Smack, for three Energy cards, one each of Grass, Lightning, and Colorless, this move does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dragonair is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Dratini into play (I reviewed Dratini from this set yesterday) and then evolve Dratini into Dragonair.  Dratini does have a Stage 2 evolution in Dragonite, 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 Dragonair is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read my review of Dratini, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon overall, at least on its own.  The card had a solid HP, and two moves, one that could get all three Pokemon in this family into your hand from your deck and the other could do 10 damage for one Energy card.  So knowing this about Dratini and looking at this Dragonair card, this is another card in this line that you'd only use in the Active Pokemon spot to set up Dragonite quicker.  So, if you plan on using Dratini and Dragonair without Dragonite, I would not recommend using the cards from this set.  Although Dragonair does do average damage with Tail Smack, because it requires three distinct types of Energy, I would look elsewhere.

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 Sun and Moon set.  Similarly to Dratini, if you're not using this card with Dragonite, it just isn't that good, since Dragonair's first move, Dragon's Wish, greatly helps Dragonite with its attack.  So together with Dratini from this set, I would give the first two Pokemon in this line a 2 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave each card individually.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Dragonair from the Sun and Moon set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Dratini's Stage 2 evolution in Dragonite, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Dratini -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Dratini Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dratini from the Sun and Moon set.  Dratini is a Basic, Dragon type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Dratini does not have an Ability but the card does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Signs of Evolution, for one Grass Energy card this move allows you to search your deck for a Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite, and put them into your hand.  Dratini's second move is called Tail Smack, for one Lightning Energy card this move does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dratini is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Dragonair, and a Stage 2 evolution in Dragonite, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of 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 just act like Dratini does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card isn't one to use in a deck, even though it can do 10 damage for one Lightning Energy card, because its retreat cost is higher than its attack, I would pass on using the card.  Ideally, this card is a great card to play early in the game, that way you can use Signs of Evolution and get the remaining Pokemon for this line into your hand, and evolve the line into Dragonite quite quickly, so this card really only makes sense to play if you're using at least one of Dratini's evolution forms.

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 Sun and Moon set.  Although this card is below average on its own, it is solid overall if using with Dragonair and Dragonite, since it can do damage and get those Pokemon into your hand.  Otherwise, on its own, a card with 1 move that does 10 damage is pretty limited, so there are much better cards out there to use.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Dratini from the Sun and Moon Pokemon card set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Dratini's Stage 1 evolution in Dragonair, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Ribombee -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Ribombee Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ribombee from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Ribombee is a Stage 1, Fairy type Pokemon card, with a HP of 60. It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Darkness type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Ribombee's Ability is called Curative Pollen and says that once per turn you may heal 20 damage from one of your Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Ribombee's only move is called Fairy Wind, for one Fairy type Energy card this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ribombee is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Cutiefly into play (I reviewed Cutiefly from this set yesterday) and then evolve Cutiefly into Ribombee.  If you read yesterday's review of Cutiefly, you'll know that I thought it was a well below average Basic Pokemon overall, mainly due to its low HP, plus it only had one move that did a maximum of 10 damage.  So knowing this about Cutiefly and looking at this Ribombee card, this card also has an extremely low HP, especially for a Stage 1 Pokemon.  However, despite its low HP, this card can and should be used in many decks out there, mainly for its Ability, you can use a 1-1 line of this family in your deck and use Curative Pollen from the deck, healing 20 damage from one of your Pokemon each turn.  I wouldn't recommend putting Ribombee in the Active Pokemon spot because of its low HP, but the one move it does have, Fairy Wind, does do a fair amount of damage for only one Energy card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Despite having a really low HP, one that is average on most Basic Pokemon cards, this card should be used in decks to help heal damage from your Pokemon while sitting on your Bench.  So, combined with Cutiefly from this set, I would still give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, all because I think Ribombee's Ability is that good.

Cutiefly -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Cutiefly Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cutiefly from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Cutiefly is a Basic, Fairy type Pokemon card with a HP of 30.  It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Darkness type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Cutiefly does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Fly Around, for one Fairy type Energy card this move does 10 damage, plus, if any damage is done to Cutiefly during your opponent's next turn, if you get a heads when flipping a coin, all damage is prevented.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cutiefly is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Ribombee, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I would definitely not recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason being that it has such a low HP.  I do like the fact Fly Around may help prevent damage, but this card is better suited to be in the Active Pokemon spot one turn, or evolved into Ribombee on the Bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Ribombee, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, because this card has such a low HP, there is really no reason to use it in a deck without using Ribombee.  You can easily find other Pokemon that can do 10 damage for one Energy card and ones that have a high HP than 30.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Granbull -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Granbull Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Granbull from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Granbull is a Stage 1, Fairy type Pokemon card, with a HP of 110. It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Darkness type Pokemon, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Granbull does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  This card's first move is called Dark Clamp, for one Fairy Energy card, this move does 30 damage, plus it makes the defending Pokemon unable to retreat during your opponent's next turn.  Granbull's second move is called Fight Back, for three Energy cards, one Fairy and two Colorless, this move does 50 damage plus 80 more damage if Granbull has any damage counters on it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Granbull is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Snubbull into play (I reviewed Snubbull from this set yesterday) and then evolve Snubbull into Granbull.  If you read yesterday's review of Snubbull, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall, it did have an above average HP and could do 20 damage for only one Energy card, but it was limited in that it only had the one move, and the one move it did have could do damage to Snubbull when attacking.  So knowing this about Snubbull and looking at this Granbull card, it would actually make sense to try and use Snubbull as a starter type Pokemon in a deck, using its Reckless Charge move, doing 20 damage, and if you flip a tails and have to do 10 damage to Snubbull, when you evolve it into Granbull, Granbull's Fight Back move will do 130 damage instead of 50.  This Granbull card would also make sense to use in a deck which features a powerful attacker that may end up doing damage to all Pokemon in play, this Pokemon would again, make Fight Back do 130 damage instead of 50.  So, if you're building a Fairy type deck, or just looking for a powerful attacker, I would recommend giving this Granbull card a look.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Other than when attacking without damage on it, Granbull is a very solid Stage 1 Pokemon card overall, that can do up to 130 damage a turn for only three Energy cards.  Pair this card with Snubbull from the set, and I really like this line overall, I would give both cards in this line a 4 out of 5 rating, they work very well together.

Snubbull -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Snubbull Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Snubbull from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Snubbull is a Basic, Fairy type Pokemon card with a HP of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Darkness type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Snubbull does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  This card's only move is called Reckless Charge, for one Fairy Energy card, this move does 20 damage, however, when using this move, you must flip a coin, if you get a tails, Snubbull does 10 damage to itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Snubbull is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Granbull, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, unless you're desperate for a Fairy type Pokemon card to use in your deck, I would pass on using this card.  Although Snubbull has an above average HP, and can do above average damage when attacking, because it is limited in only having one move and the one move it does have has the potential to do damage to itself, I would look elsewhere for Basic Pokemon to use, or make sure and use this card with Granbull.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Granbull, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  If you have some luck and can always flip a heads, this is a decent starter type Pokemon, but otherwise, keep it on the Bench or don't use it in your deck at all.

Solgaleo GX -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Solgaleo GX Sun and Moon
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Solgaleo GX from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Solgaleo GX is a Stage 2, Metal type Pokemon card, with a HP of 250.  It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Solgaleo GX has an Ability plus two moves.  Its Ability is called Ultra Road and says that once per turn, before your attack, you may switch your Active Pokemon with one of your Benched Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Solgaleo's first move is called Sunsteel Strike, for three Energy cards, two Metal and one Colorless, this move does 230 damage, however, you must discard all Energy attached to Solgaleo GX after using this move.  Sol Burst GX is this card's second move, for one Metal Energy card, this move allows you to search your deck for up to 5 Basic Energy cards and attach them to your Pokemon in any way you'd like.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, first off, the way a Pokemon GX works is that it is used instead of a regular Solgaleo card, so if you have Cosmoem in play, you evolve that Pokemon directly into Solgaleo GX.  In play, only one GX move can be used during the entire game, and once a Pokemon GX is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  Since Solgaleo GX is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Cosmog into play and then evolve it into Cosmoem before you can evolve Cosmoem into Solgaleo GX, 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 cards were well below average, if you plan on using Solgaleo GX in your deck, evolve the entire line on the Bench.  Cosmog can only draw a card, it can't do damage when attacking, and Cosmoem's only move is a free retreat.  Regardless of the type of deck you're building, I would highly recommend trying to fit Solgaleo GX into it.  You don't even have to put Solgaleo GX into the Active Pokemon spot, you can just utilize its Ability from the Bench, giving all of your Pokemon a free retreat cost.  However, if you do get three Energy cards on Solgaleo GX, it can be a very powerful attacker, and if you choose to use its GX move, you can for sure use Sunsteel Strike 2 times in 3 turns, doing 230 damage a turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an excellent Pokemon GX card from the Sun and Moon set.  I really like this card overall, especially its Ability, making a deck that much quicker by giving all Pokemon free retreat costs.  Add in the fact it can do an insane amount of damage when attacking, and I would conclude that this card is one of the best from the Sun and Moon set.  Because you'll never want to put Cosmog or Cosmoem in the Active Pokemon spot, this entire line gets a 4 out of 5 rating from me.

Skarmory -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Skarmory Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skarmory from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Skarmory is a Basic, Metal type Pokemon card with a HP of 110.  Skarmory has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Fighting type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Skarmory does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Metallic Sound, for two Colorless Energy cards this move allows you to discard all Special Energy from each Pokemon.  Skarmory's second move is called Aerial Ace, for three Energy cards, one Metal and two Colorless, this move does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skarmory is a Basic Pokemon card with no evolution forms, you'll only have to use this card in a deck if you want to use Skarmory.  So knowing this, this card can't be used as a starter type Pokemon since it is too slow on the attack.  Really, the only reason you'd use this card in a deck is for its Metallic Sound move, lots of decks run 4 Double Colorless Energy cards, so using this move may destroy your opponent's strategy and gain you a big advantage.  Aerial Ace is also a solid move that has potential to do major damage, but for a card that has 110 HP, putting three Energy cards on it is risky.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Like I mentioned above, this is a card best used later in games, once it is set up on your Bench, it can work as either an attacker or a card that destroys your opponent's strategy.  Overall, although not amazing, it is a solid card and should be considered when deck building.

Alolan Dugtrio -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Alolan Dugtrio Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Alolan Dugtrio from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Alolan Dugtrio is a Stage 1, Metal type Pokemon card, with a HP of 100. It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Alolan Dugtrio's Ability is called Tangling Hair, it makes the opponent's Active Pokemon's retreat cost one Colorless Energy card higher.  Besides the Ability, Alolan Dugtrio just has one move called Dig Under, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 50 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Alolan Dugtrio is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Alolan Diglett into play (I reviewed Alolan Diglett from this set yesterday) and then evolve Alolan Diglett into Alolan Dugtrio.  If you read yesterday's review of Alolan Diglett, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  It had a below average HP, but did have two moves, neither of which was particularly strong, but at least it had some possibilities if need be.  So knowing this about Alolan Diglett and looking at this Alolan Dugtrio card, the only reason I would use this line in a deck would be to use Alolan Dugtrio's Ability from the Bench.  Although one Colorless Energy card may not seem like much for adding to the retreat cost, if a deck is predicated on free retreat cost, this Ability could throw a big wrench into their plans.  Other than Alolan Dugtrio's Ability, although Dig Under does below average damage, you could use a Double Colorless Energy card with it and do 50 damage for two Energy cards plus, if used in a spread attack type deck, it could knock out one of your opponent's Benched Pokemon in one move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Although this card is a bit under-powered and only has one move, because of how good Alolan Dugtrio's Ability is, and the fact you can use this card from the Bench, I am giving this card an average rating overall.  Combined with Alolan Diglett, I would give these two cards a 2 out of 5 rating, if you can't utilize Alolan Dugtrio's Ability, I would look elsewhere for some Metal type Pokemon to use for your deck.

So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Alolan Dugtrio from the Sun and Moon set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Skarmory, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Alolan Diglett -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Alolan Diglett Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Alolan Diglett from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Alolan Diglett is a Basic, Metal type Pokemon card with a HP of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Alolan Diglett does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Spelunk, for zero Energy cards, this move allows you to look at the top 3 cards of your deck and arrange them in any order.  Alolan Diglett's second move is called Mud-Slap, for one Metal Energy card this move does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Alolan Diglett is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Alolan Dugtrio, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, unless you can gain a huge advantage by re-arranging the top 3 cards of your deck by using Alolan Diglett's Spelunk move, I would pass on using this card in a deck, the main reason being that it has a below average HP.  Because of how limited this card is, with its low HP, and weak moves, if you plan on using Alolan Dugtrio in a deck, I would evolve it on the Bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Alolan Dugtrio, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  I do like the fact that Alolan Diglett has two moves, with one of the moves able to attack without any Energy, but overall, this card is just too weak to use in the Active Pokemon spot without plans of evolving it.  So, if you're building a Metal type deck, I would look elsewhere for Basic Pokemon to use.

Krookodile -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Krookodile Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krookodile from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Krookodile is a Stage 2, Darkness type Pokemon card, with a HP of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Krookodile does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called False Accusation, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 20 damage plus 20 more damage for each card in your opponent's hand.  Krookodile's second move is called Obsidian Fang, for three Energy cards, two Darkness and one Colorless, this move does 120 damage, plus, before doing the damage, all Pokemon Tool cards attached to your opponent's Active Pokemon can be discarded.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Krookodile is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Sandile into play and then evolve it into Krokorok before you can evolve Krokorok into Krookodile, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards combined were below average.  Although both Sandile and Krokorok had solid HP and a good variety of moves, both cards were somewhat slow on the attack and not that powerful.  So knowing this about Sandile and Krokorok and looking at this Krookodile card, you could use a 1-1-1 line of this Pokemon family, attaching just a single Double Colorless Energy card to Krookodile on the Bench, then when your opponent has a full hand, move Krookodile to the Active Pokemon spot and do major damage.  Of course, if Pokemon Tool cards are something you think your opponent will depend on, certainly put three Energy cards on Krookodile and use Obsidian Fang.

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 Sun and Moon set.  Other than having to wait for a good opportunity to use False Accusation, this card is solid overall, not only can it do major damage, but it can attack fairly quickly.  Altogether, I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating, it can be considered, but it shouldn't be the main Pokemon line in a deck.
