Maractus -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Maractus Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Maractus from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Maractus is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Maractus does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Dazzle Dance, this move requires one grass energy card and does 10 damage plus this move confuses the defending Pokemon.  Maractus's second move is called Ambush, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and grass, and does 20 damage, this move does 30 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Maractus is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  In my opinion, this would be a perfect starter Pokemon card to include in a grass type deck.  It has two moves so you can attack right away plus it can do a good amount of damage with its second move.  I would include 2 to 4 Maractus in a grass type deck and put one into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible in the game.  You can move this card into the active Pokemon spot immediately because it has a move that requires only one energy card and it has a high hp so it can withstand several attacks.  I would first use Dazzle Dance to confuse the defending Pokemon then the next turn use Ambush to try and do 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an amazing basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card set.  If you're looking for a grass type starter Pokemon to use in your deck, look no further than this card!  This card has a high hp, low retreat cost, and two good moves.  You definitely can't go wrong by using this card in your grass type deck.
