Lombre -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Lombre Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lombre from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Lombre is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lombre does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Jump On, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Lombre's second move is called Wave Splash, this move does 50 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one water.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lombre is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lotad into play (I reviewed Lotad from this set yesterday) and then evolve Lotad into Lombre.  Lombre does have a stage 2 evolution in Ludicolo that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Lombre is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Lotad was a decent basic Pokemon card that could be used in a deck on its own.  So after that review, I would still recommend using just one Lotad card in a water type deck and I probably wouldn't include this card in the deck without using Ludicolo, at the very most I would include a 2-1 or 1-1 line of Lotad and Lombre in a water type deck.  So if you use this card in a deck, you'll want to get it into the active Pokemon quickly and depending on the amount of energy cards on it, use the attack you can.  If you get Lotad in the active Pokemon spot to start the game and evolve it into Lombre after a turn or two, Wave Splash will knock out most basic Pokemon in two turns.  I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck because neither of its moves does above average damage and with only 80 hp, this card isn't very good later in games.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card. I like that this card does have two moves that require average energy but neither of these two moves do much damage and with only 80 hp on a stage 1 Pokemon card you can definitely find better stage 1 water Pokemon cards out there to use in your deck.  So after reviewing both Lotad and Lombre from this set I would give these two Pokemon a 2 out of 5 rating.
