Sharpedo -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Sharpedo Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sharpedo from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Sharpedo is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a free retreat cost.  Sharpedo's Ability is called Rough Skin and says that if Sharpedo is your active Pokemon and is attacked the attacking Pokemon has two put 20 damage on them.  Besides the Ability, Sharpedo just has one move called Hard Bite, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 40 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sharpedo is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Carvanha into play (I reviewed Carvanha from this set yesterday) and then evolve Carvanha into Sharpedo.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Carvanha was a slightly below average basic Pokemon card, so if you use that card with this card I would use 1 each in a water type deck.  I would try and get Sharpedo on your bench and get two energy cards on it.  The earlier you get this card into the active Pokemon spot the more effective it is going to be, for example if you're facing a Pokemon that has 80 damage or less, you can use Hard Bite one turn, hopefully get a heads when you flip a coin so you do 60 damage, then your opponent will have to choose to attack Sharpedo and get knocked out or not attack at all.  If many cards in your deck have low retreat costs, I would move Sharpedo into the active Pokemon spot anytime the defending Pokemon has 20 damage or less on it, that way you will make them not attack you or attack you and knock themselves out every time.  So I think this Pokemon line from the Plasma Storm set is a very good addition to any water type deck out there, and just by adding 2 cards to your deck, I believe that that could make a big difference for you.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good stage 1 Pokemon card and would definitely be a good addition to your water type deck.  I really like Sharpedo's Ability and that it basically prevents your opponent from attacking you, also besides the great Ability, I like that Hard Bite does above average damage for only 2 energy cards and if you get in trouble using Sharpedo you can retreat it for free.  Overall, I would give this Pokemon family a 4 out of 5 rating, it is definitely a worthy addition to all water type decks.
