Koffing #56/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Koffing Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Koffing from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Koffing cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Koffing is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Koffing does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Tackle, this move requires one psychic energy card and does 10 damage.  Koffing's second move is called Double Spin, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Koffing is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Weezing, which I'll be reviewing in two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet and I have not reviewed the other Koffing card from this set, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, this Koffing card would be a solid starter Pokemon card to use in a psychic type deck, I would consider using 1 or 2 of these cards and trying to get them in the active Pokemon spot to start the game.  I like this card as a starter Pokemon because it has above average hp and it has two moves but at the same time can attack with only one energy card.  I would use Double Spin most of the time unless the defending Pokemon will be knocked out by 10 damage then use Tackle instead.  Also, if you're only using this Koffing card and not Weezing in your deck, this card would work well in almost all decks because Double Spin requires colorless energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  I am giving this card a 3 rating even though it is close to a 4 because of Koffing's retreat cost and that Double Spin may not do any damage at all.  But as far as basic Pokemon go that have evolution cards, this one is pretty good, and definitely could be used in a psychic type deck.

Koffing is prone to over-inflating its round body before it self-destructs. The higher the temperature, the more gas Koffing concocts.

Thanks :D

Before Koffing self-destructs, it tends to over-inflate its round body before blowing up into a bloody mess.

hi im new here and just trying this out btw he inflates his body before exploding http://www.youtube.com/user/TheFirstFoxx

kl said...

pressure exercised on koffings body will become too great causing it to expand and finally explode koffing can also make itself explode at will if sufficiently provoked by overinflating itself.
(please give me the code i beg if you dont it will be a big loss to me please)
