Lampent -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Lampent Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lampent from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Lampent is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lampent's Ability is called Freefloating, this Ability says that if Lampent does not have any energy cards on it, its retreat cost is 0.  Besides the Ability, Lampent has only one move, this move is called Will-O-Wisp and for two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, it does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lampent is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litwick into play (I reviewed Litwick from this set yesterday) and then evolve Litwick into Lampent.  Lampent does have a stage 2 evolution in Chandelure, but there is not a Chandelure card in this set.  Because there is no Chandelure card in this set and I haven't recently reviewed a Chandelure card, I am going to act as though Lampent is the final evolution in this Pokemon line.  If this were the case I would definitely not use this Pokemon family at all in any type deck.  I say this because Lampent has an extremely low hp for a stage 1 Pokemon, plus the only move it has doesn't do much at all.  But if for some reason you want to use this line in your fire type deck, I would use no more than 1 each of Litwick and Lampent, I would evolve Litwick into Lampent as soon as possible then use Will-O-Wisp when you can.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a dreadful stage 1 Pokemon card, it is definitely one of the worst stage 1 cards I have seen in quite awhile and I would advise everyone to stay away from this card.  I do not like this card's hp, Ability, or only move.  Altogether, I would rate Lampent and Litwick from this set a 1 out of 5 rating, definitely two poor Pokemon cards from the Plasma Storm set.

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

And Plasma Freeze in Jap (recently released).

Actually there is another one jap set before that have Chandelure, and it may be the one you are asking for: Spiral Force
