Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Crabominable from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set. Crabominable is a Stage 1, Water type Pokemon card, with a HP of 140. It has a x2 weakness to Metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four Colorless Energy card retreat cost. Crabominable does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Avalanche, for three Energy cards, two Water and one Colorless, this move does 80 damage, plus 10 damage to each of your opponent's Benched Pokemon. Crabominable's second move is called Ice Hammer, for four Energy cards, three Water and one Colorless, this move does 140 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Crabominable is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Crabrawler into play then evolve Crabrawler into Crabominable. I have not reviewed Crabrawler from this set yet, since it is a Fighting type Pokemon. So, looking at this Crabominable card, because it has such a huge retreat cost, it would make sense to set it up on the Bench. This card would work perfectly in a spread attack type deck since it can do more than average damage with Avalanche, and then it also spreads damage around with that move. This would be the main move I would use on Crabominable, although Ice Hammer does do major damage. So, if you're prepared to take a few turns to get this card set up, and to discard a lot of Energy when retreating, this is a pretty great Stage 1 Pokemon card to use in either a Water type deck or a spread attach type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a well above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set. Other than being slow to set up and having a high retreat cost, both of the moves on this card are dominant, they both can do major damage to the defending Pokemon, and Avalanche can also spread damage around. I would highly recommend using this card in a deck.
