Frillish -- Next Destinies Pokemon Card Review

Frillish Pokemon Card Next Destinies SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Frillish from the Next Destinies set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon card that evolves into Jellicent. I've already reviewed Jellicent from this set. Frillish has an hp of 80, a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Frillish doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Bubble and for one colorless energy card it allows you to Paralyze the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Frillish's other move is called Spit Poison which automatically poisons the defending Pokemon for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card that has an evolution you'll want to evolve Frillish into Jellicent as soon as possible since Jellicent has a much higher hp and much better moves, but if you're forced to play Frillish for a measurable amount of time you should try and poison the defending Pokemon first and then Paralyze it. I would include this card in a deck that also has other cards that inflict special conditions or spread damage around on the defending Pokemon. That way if you play Frillish you may be able to knock out the active Pokemon if it already has a lot of damage on it from earlier attacks. Frillish would be a good starter card since it has a high hp and doesn't require much energy to attack, however since this card actually doesn't do any damage you'll only be able to use this card as a staller until you evolve it or move a better Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This is a pretty average basic Pokemon card. I would definitely evolve Frillish if I had the chance. If I were to use this card in my deck I would only use a 2-1 line of Frillish and Jellicent.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Jellicent from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Raichu from the same set.
