Garbodor #66/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Garbodor Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Garbodor from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Garbodor cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  This Garbodor card is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Garbodor does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Biosmog, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage plus poisons the defending Pokemon, in addition to those two things, if you get a heads when you flip a coin, your opponent must discard an energy card attached to their active Pokemon.  Garbodor's second move is called Sludge Bomb, this move requires three energy cards, two psychic and one colorless, and does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Garbodor is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get one of the three Trubbish cards from this set into play (I reviewed all three of those cards the past couple of days and have compared them in the final Trubbish review) and then evolve Trubbish into Garbodor.  If you read the past three Trubbish reviews, you'll know I suggest using the middle Trubbish card from this set, number 64/135.  If you use this card you can move it into the active Pokemon spot immediately, but regardless, as soon as you get Garbodor in your hand you should evolve Trubbish into Garbodor because this card only requires one energy card to attack.  I would definitely want to put three energy cards on Garbodor and use Sludge Bomb every turn, but if you get this card in the active Pokemon spot a couple of turns into the game you may want to use Biosmog more so you can still do damage and instead of attaching energy cards to Garbodor attach them to your benched Pokemon to set them up.  I would definitely use this card in a psychic type deck, I would use a 2-2 line of Trubbish and Garbodor in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card.  I like how this card has an above average hp, and two good moves.  It has a quick move that does damage, inflicts a special condition, and can remove an energy card from the attached Pokemon and this move can be used with any type of energy card.  Then, Garbodor's second move Sludge Bomb does above average damage every turn.  The only thing I don't like about this card is that it has a high retreat cost.  But overall, this line of Garbodor and Trubbish would get a 4 out of 5 rating, both cards are pretty good.

Garbodor is able to spray poisonous gas and filth from its fingertips, but only from its right hand. It also finishes off opponents by subduing them with its left arm and spewing an awful-smelling toxic gas from its mouth.
