Giratina -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Giratina Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Giratina from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Giratina is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Giratina does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Hex, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 50 damage plus 50 more damage if the defending Pokemon is inflicted with a special condition.  Giratina's second move is called Shadow Claw, this move requires four energy cards, two each of psychic and colorless, and does 90 damage, besides doing the damage you may discard a random card from your opponent's hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Giratina is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, because this card requires so many energy cards to attack you're not going to want to use many of these in your deck and you're not going to want to start the game with Giratina in the active Pokemon spot.  So I would include no more than one of these in a psychic type deck, I would get four energy cards on this card before I move it into the active Pokemon spot.  It would be best if this card was included in a deck that had Pokemon that could inflict special conditions so that you could do 100 damage per turn with Hex.  So when Giratina is in the active Pokemon spot, use whichever move you have the necessary amount of energy cards for and whichever move will do more damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card set.  Even though this card has a massive hp for a basic Pokemon and two pretty powerful moves, I am not giving this card an above average rating because its retreat cost is too high, both of its moves are too slow, and if you get this card in the active Pokemon spot to start the game, it will be a long time before you can retreat or attack.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Giratina from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the first of three Trubbish cards from this set. Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
