Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vanillish from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Vanillish is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Vanillish does not have an Ability and it only has one move. The only move it has is called Icy Snow, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vanillish is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Vanillite into play (I reviewed Vanillite from this set yesterday) and then evolve Vanillite into Vanillish. Vanillish does have a stage 2 evolution in Vanilluxe 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 Vanillish is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Vanillite was an average basic Pokemon card that could be used in a deck on its own if you only use one of them. Because of this, I would recommend using Vanillite as a starter Pokemon, attaching one energy card to it in the active Pokemon and then as soon as you get Vanillish into your hand to evolve Vanillite into Vanillish, attach another energy card to it, and then use Icy Snow every turn. If you only use these two Pokemon in your water type deck, I would use a 1-1 line of Vanillite and Vanillish.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though this card has a below average hp, I am still giving this card an average rating because I like that it has a low retreat cost and that the only move it has only requires two energy cards to use and does above average damage. So if you have a water type deck, and are looking for a couple of more Pokemon to put in your deck, you can't go wrong with Vanillite and Vanillish from the Plasma Storm set. Overall, so far I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating, both cards are very average.
