Gallade -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Gallade Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gallade from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Gallade is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gallade does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Powerful Storm, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of energy cards attached to all of your Pokemon.  Gallade's second move is called Swift Lunge, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 80 damage, plus your opponent must switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gallade is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Ralts into play and then evolve it into Kirlia before you can evolve Kirlia into Gallade, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of these Pokemon are pretty poor so you'll definitely want to try and evolve Ralts into Gallade on your bench.  I would try and keep Gallade on the bench until most of the Pokemon you have in play are set up, that way when you move Gallade into the active Pokemon spot, most your other Pokemon will have at least 1 energy card on it, so then you can use Powerful Storm and hopefully do more than 100 damage a turn.  If you don't have that many energy cards attached to all of your other Pokemon (at least 4), you'll want to use Swift Lunge.  Because this move makes the defending Pokemon switch its Pokemon after it is attacked, this card would work perfectly in a spread damage type deck, i.e. using this card with the Weezing card from this set.  That way all your opponent's benched Pokemon will have or have had damage put on them already so you can hopefully knock more than 1 out at a time doing spread damage.  So I would definitely base a deck around this line, I would use a 4-3-2 line of Ralts, Kirlia, and Gallade in a psychic type deck, I would also make sure to include a 2-2 line of Koffing and Weezing from this deck as well.

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 that should be used to base a psychic deck around.  I like that this card has a high hp, low retreat cost, and two very good, yet diverse moves.  There really isn't anything I don't like about this card.  With that being said, Ralts and Kirlia from this set aren't the greatest, so overall I would give this Pokemon line a high 3 to low 4 rating out of 5.
