Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Crobat from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Crobat is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Crobat's Ability is called Night Sight and says that once before your attack you may draw a card. Besides the Ability, Crobat just has one move called Ultra-Toxic Fang, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 40 damage, plus poisons the defending Pokemon and instead of putting 1 damage counter on that Pokemon between turns you can put 4.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Crobat is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Zubat into play and then evolve it into Golbat before you can evolve Golbat into Crobat, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them (including both Zubat cards) the last few days. If you read the past few days' reviews you'll know which Zubat I recommend to use in this set, so pair that card with Golbat, and I would definitely use this entire line in a psychic type deck. I would use a 3-2-2 line and try and get Golbat into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible. I would want to do this because not only is Crobat's Ability awesome, allowing you to draw a card, but Ultra-Toxic Fang can be deadly, not only does it do 40 damage per turn, but by poisoning the defending Pokemon you don't even have to attack the defending Pokemon anymore and it will have to keep adding damage to it. The best part of this card is that you can pair this card with another Pokemon with a free retreat cost and move this card in and out of play whenever you like, whenever a new Pokemon is put in the active Pokemon spot by your opponent, move Crobat into play, poison it, then retreat Crobat that next turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very good stage 2 Pokemon card, it is so good in my opinion that I would definitely consider building a deck around it. The only thing I wish was a bit better on this card was its hp, but since this card has a free retreat cost, you can always retreat Crobat if it is close to getting knocked out. Overall, I would give the entire Pokemon family of Zubat, Golbat, and Crobat from this set a 4 out of 5 rating.
