Frillish -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Frillish Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Frillish from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Frillish is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Frillish does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Absorb, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 10 damage plus it heals 10 damage from Frillish.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Frillish is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Jellicent, 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, Frillish could hold its own as a starter Pokemon in a water type deck however I wouldn't recommend using one because even though it has above average hp, its only move is fairly slow, and won't do much damage, plus it has a high retreat cost for a basic Pokemon with only one move.  With that being said, if you choose to use this Pokemon in a deck, make sure to only use one, and you'll want to get this card into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible in the game so you can attach two energy cards to it and use Absorb every turn, hopefully lasting several turns with Frillish in the active Pokemon spot so you can set up your benched Pokemon.

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 an above hp and an even higher hp if you use Absorb a couple of times.  However I do not like that this card's only move requires two energy cards to use and only does 10 damage.  Also this card has a high retreat cost for a basic Pokemon that evolves, so if you use this card on its own and want to retreat it it will cost two energy cards which is too much in my opinion. So again, I wouldn't use this card in a deck, but it wouldn't be terrible to use one of these cards if you had to.
