Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mamoswine from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Mamoswine is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Mamoswine does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move it has is called Frost Stone, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 50 damage plus 20 more damage plus paralysis if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Mamoswine's second move is called Continuous Headbutt, this move requires four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, and does 90 damage times the number of heads you get in a row, so if you flip a tails the first time this move does nothing.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mamoswine is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Swinub into play and then evolve it into Piloswine before you can evolve Piloswine into Mamoswine, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days. Both of these Pokemon require a good amount of energy to attack, so ideally you'd like to set this line up on the bench, but chances are if you moved Swinub or Piloswine into the active Pokemon spot, when you evolve them into Mamoswine you'll have at least three energy cards on it so you can use Frost Stone right away. Depending on the opponent, Frost Stone may actually be more effective than Continuous Heartbeat, I would say if the defending Pokemon has 180 hp or more or 80 or 90 hp to use Continuous Heartbeat, otherwise use Frost Stone. Regardless of which move you use, you'll have to make sure that this is the main Pokemon line your deck is built around so that you don't use up all your other energy cards on Pokemon that isn't this line. I would use a 3-2-2 line of this Pokemon family in a water type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card. This card has a very good hp, and two good moves, but they are both slow, and Continuous Headbutt may do huge damage or none at all, so it is a bit risky. I would rate this entire Pokemon family, Swinub, Piloswine, and Mamoswine, a 4 out of 5, all of these Pokemon cards in this line are pretty good.
