Elgyem #69/135 -- 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 second 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.  So so far this card is very similar to yesterday's Elgyem card.  This card does not have an Ability like yesterday's card, but this card does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Reflect, this move requires one colorless energy card and reduces the amount of damage done to Elgyem during your opponent's next turn by 20.  Elgyem's second move is called Smash Punch, this move requires two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 30 damage, however you have to flip a coin when using this move and if you get a tails this move does nothing.

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 tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, this Elgyem card would be a card I wouldn't use in a deck on its own.  I don't like that this card doesn't have a move that guarantees it can do damage every turn, plus the only move that can do damage, Smash Punch, has the same requirements and does the same damage as yesterday's card however this card's move has only a 50% of doing the same amount of damage yesterday's card was guaranteed to do.  The only good thing about using this card as a starter Pokemon is that Reflect may make it so your opponent can never attack you, especially early in the game, thus you can have Elgyem in the active Pokemon spot while you're setting up your bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  This card is definitely worse than yesterday's Elgyem card and even though this card has two moves, I prefer yesterday's card more.  I just don't like that this card cannot do damage every turn, 100% guaranteed.

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 Elgyem's stage 1 evolution in Beheeyem, which is also from this set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
