Squirtle -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Squirtle Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Squirtle from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Squirtle is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Squirtle does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  The only move it has is called Tackle, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Squirtle is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Wartortle and a stage 2 evolution in Blastoise, which aren't in this set but I have reviewed from the Boundaries Crossed set, I would more than likely use this Squirtle card with those two cards.  However, since I reviewed those cards awhile back and those cards aren't from this set I'll just be talking about this Squirtle card as if it was used on its own in a deck without its evolutions.  So on its own, Squirtle is a decent starter type Pokemon.  I would recommend putting 1 or 2 in any type deck and trying to get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, you can then attach any type of energy card to it and start attacking right away.  Other than that, there isn't much else to do with this card since it doesn't have an Ability or any other moves.  So again, I would probably include this card in just about any type deck as a "safety" card of sorts, because it has a decent hp where it could be put in any time throughout the game and not get knocked out immediately, at least that is what one would hope.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very solid basic Pokemon card and a basic Pokemon card that can be used in a deck without its evolutions.  This card is pretty average overall, average hp, average retreat cost, and average move.  It would have been nice to see a bit more on this card, like the Boundaries Crossed card but nevertheless this card isn't bad at all.
