Joltik -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Joltik Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Joltik from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Joltik is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Joltik does not have an Ability and it only has one move. The only move this card has is called Jump On, this move requires one lightning energy card and does 10 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Joltik is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Galvantula, 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, Joltik wouldn't be the greatest basic Pokemon card to use in your lightning type deck, even though Jump On is a good move, that is Joltik's only move, and only being able to do 10 or 20 damage a turn while only having 40 hp won't get you very far in a game.  So I would not recommend using this card in a deck on its own.  If you choose to use this card, I wouldn't use more than one in a deck and your best option is to get this card into the active Pokemon spot as early as possible and start using Jump On right away.

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.  I am not giving this card a 1 rating because other than its low hp, this card isn't too bad, but still I would have liked to see a higher hp or at least another move, because just using this card in a deck isn't a good idea since this card has such a low hp.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Joltik from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Joltik's stage 1 evolution in Galvantula, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
