Probopass -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Probopass Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Probopass from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Probopass is a Stage 1, Metal type Pokemon card, with a HP of 130. It has a x2 weakness to Fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a four Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Probopass does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Energy Link, for one Metal type Energy card this move does 30 damage, plus, this move allows you to attach an Energy card from your discard pile to Probopass.  This card's second move is called Power Gem, for four Colorless Energy cards, this move does 120 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Probopass is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Nosepass into play (I reviewed Nosepass from this set yesterday) and then evolve Nosepass into Probopass.  If you read my review of Nosepass, you'll know that I thought it was a well below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Even though the card had a high HP, and two moves, with the potential to do 60 damage per turn, this card was too slow to set up, and under-powered overall, plus its retreat cost was very high.  So knowing this about Nosepass and looking at this Probopass card, you'll of course want to set this line up on the Bench, especially because both Pokemon in this line have such high retreat costs.  If you're using 4 Double Colorless Energy cards in your deck, I could potentially see using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family, and being able to do 120 damage per turn for only two Energy cards.  Otherwise, both Pokemon in this line are too slow to attack, and both under-powered.  I do like, however, how you can attach a Special Energy card to Probopass with its Energy Link 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 Guardians Rising set overall.  Despite its extremely high retreat cost, and the amount of Energy required to attack, in certain situations this card can be quite good, especially when using Double Colorless Energy cards.  Together with Nosepass from this set, which I gave a 1 out of 5 rating, I would give both cards combined a 2 out of 5 rating.
