Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Jellicent from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Jellicent is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless retreat cost. Jellicent's Ability is called Spiteful Spirit and says that if the defending Pokemon knocks out Jellicent, that Pokemon is now confused and poisoned. Besides the Ability, Jellicent just has one move called Aqua Bullet, this move does 40 damage to your opponent's active Pokemon plus 10 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Jellicent is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Frillish into play (I reviewed Frillish from this set yesterday) and then evolve Frillish into Jellicent. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Frillish was a slightly below average basic Pokemon card that could be used on its own but I wouldn't recommend doing that. Because of this, I would recommend setting up Jellicent on the bench and then move it into the active Pokemon spot after one of your own Pokemon has already spread damage around. This card would work perfectly with the Vanilluxe Pokemon card from this set, the Vanilluxe line would be the main line in my deck and Jellicent and Frillish would be a good role player for the deck. I would use a 2-1 or 2-2 line in my deck. You will have no choice but to use Aqua Bullet every turn, but if you already have damage on your opponent's Pokemon your opponent will have to knock Jellicent out so that you don't knock any more of its benched Pokemon out, thus you will get to use Jellicent's Ability and poison and confuse that Pokemon. So overall, I think that this is a good card and definitely a great addition to any deck that uses spread damage type Pokemon, especially water type decks.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very good stage 1 Pokemon card and would definitely be a good addition to your water type deck. I like that Jellicent has above average hp, and the one move it does have is not only quick but it does damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon. If this card is used in a spread damage type deck, Jellicent's Ability will become even better which is why I'm giving this card an above average rating. I would give this Pokemon family (Frillish and Jellicent) a 3 out of 5 rating overall.
