Diglett -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Diglett Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Diglett from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Diglett is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Diglett's Ability is called Submerge and says that as long as Diglett is on your bench, all damage from attacks are prevented from it.  Besides the Ability, Diglett just has one move called Dig Through, for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, this move does 30 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Diglett is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in 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, the first thing you'll want to reference is Diglett's low HP, so unless you can attach something to Diglett to make it higher, I would not recommend using this card in the active Pokemon spot, especially since it can't attack for only one energy.  So it would stink as a starter type Pokemon, and quickly get knocked out late in games.  However, if you can get its HP up to 60 or more, and are building a spread attack type deck, Dig Through is a solid move, allowing you to do 30 damage to any of your opponent's benched Pokemon.  So I could see in a spread attack type deck, attaching an item to this card to makes its HP higher, than using Dig Through a couple of turns, putting 30 damage on some weaker Pokemon of your opponent's.  You could then move in a more powerful Pokemon to the active Pokemon spot, one that does 20 or more damage to all benched Pokemon, and you could knock multiple Pokemon out at once.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Dugtrio, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the XY Evolutions set.  Like I mentioned in depth above, there are certain situations where this card can be useful, but for the most part, any card that has such a low HP isn't a good card for battling.
