Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dewgong from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set. Dewgong is a Stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with a HP of 120. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Dewgong does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Super Deep Dive, for one water energy card this move heals 40 damage from Dewgong and allows you to switch Dewgong with one of your benched Pokemon. Dewgong's second move is called Take Down and for three energy cards, two colorless and one water, this move does 90 damage, however the move does do 20 damage to Dewgong.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dewgong is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Seel into play (I reviewed Seel from this set yesterday) and then evolve Seel into Dewgong. If you read yesterday's review of Seel, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card overall, it had an above average HP and two solid moves, one that could reduce damage from attacking Pokemon and another that did 20 damage for two energy cards. So knowing this about Seel and looking at this Dewgong card, if you're looking for a water type line that can dole out some major damage, Dewgong is a contender since it can do 90 damage a turn, however, I would much rather use a Basic Pokemon like Slowbro EX, and be able to do 100 damage a turn without doing any damage to itself. If you are using let's say a 1-1 line of Seel and Dewgong in a deck, you would try and use Take Down a couple of turns, heal the damage with a Potion trainer and when ready to retreat, instead of wasting three energy cards, just use Super Deep Dive, which heals damage and allows you to retreat for free.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an average to slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the XY Evolutions set. This card has a well above average HP for a Stage 1 Pokemon card and it does have two useful moves that work well together. But, like I stated above, knowing Slowbro EX is in this same set, I would much rather use that card over this line of Pokemon, for that reason, even though I gave both Seel and Dewgong 3 out of 5 ratings individually, I'm going to give the two Pokemon combined a 2 out of 5 rating.
