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.
