Elgyem #68/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Elgyem Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Elgyem from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Elgyem cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Elgyem is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Elgyem does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move it has is called Psyshot, this move requires two psychic energy cards and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Elgyem is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Beheeyem, which I'll be reviewing in two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet and I have not reviewed the other Elgyem card from this set, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, this Elgyem card wouldn't be too bad of a starter Pokemon card in your psychic type deck.  I would consider several of these cards in a psychic type deck to have as the starter Pokemon in my deck.  I would include 3, possibly 4 because Elgyem can do a fair amount of damage quite quickly, all you'll have to do is wait a turn without attacking to be able to use Psyshot, and this move used early on in the game should knock out many basic Pokemon in two moves.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Even though the only move this card has does do above average damage, I'm still giving this card an average rating because it does only have the one move.  But like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, I would definitely use this card in a deck on its own.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Elgyem from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second consecutive Elgyem card review, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
