Chimchar -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Chimchar Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chimchar from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Chimchar is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Chimchar does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  The only move it has is called Flare, this move requires one fire energy card and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chimchar is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Monferno and a stage 2 evolution in Infernape, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, Chimchar is a pretty decent starter Pokemon card for a fire type deck.  I would include up to four of these in my deck and hope to get a Chimchar card into the active Pokemon spot immediately to start the game.  As soon as Chimchar is in the active Pokemon spot I would attach a fire energy card to it, if there already isn't one on it, and use Flare every turn.  While Chimchar is in the active Pokemon spot I would be busy setting up my bench Pokemon so I could retreat Chimchar in a few turns and move that better Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very solid basic Pokemon card and a basic Pokemon card that can be used in a deck without its evolutions.  I like this card's retreat cost, and its only move which is quick and can do a good amount of damage.  However, Chimchar can't do anything more than the one move that does just 20 damage a turn.

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