Carvanha -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Carvanha Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Carvanha from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Carvanha is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Carvanha does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Bite and it does 20 damage for two energy cards, one each of colorless and water.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Carvanha is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Sharpedo, 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, Carvanha would be very decent, possibly a little below average.  I say this because if you try and start the game using Carvanha you'll have to wait two turns before you can attack and use Bite, and if you get Carvanha into the active Pokemon spot later in the game, 20 damage isn't much to do every turn.  So I wouldn't use this card in a deck on its own, but if you need to find one more water Pokemon to fit into your water type deck this card wouldn't be that bad of choice.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card.  I do like that this card has a solid hp, low retreat cost, and one move that does average damage, but because this card does only have one move and the move requires two energy cards I am giving this card a 2 instead of a 3 out of 5 rating.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Carvanha from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Carvanha's stage 1 evolution in Sharpedo, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Carvanha attack ships in swarms, making them sink. Although it is said to be a very vicious POKéMON, it timidly flees as soon as it finds itself alone.

It's a pack hunter, it will attack virtually anything in the water, however without the strength in numbers it is shy and cowardly. http://www.youtube.com/user/inferno7453
