Magneton #45/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Magneton Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Magneton from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two Magneton cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Magneton is a stage 1, lightning type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless retreat cost.  Magneton does not have an Ability and this version of Magneton only has one move.  The only move it has is called Knock Away, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and lightning, and does 20 damage.  If you get a heads when you flip a coin while using this move, this move does 40 damage instead of 20.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Magneton is a stage 1 Pokemon card with a stage 2 evolution in Magnezone, which I'll be reviewing the next two days because there are two Magnezone cards from this set, you'll more than likely want to use Magneton with its evolution. However since I haven't reviewed its evolution cards from this set yet I'll just review this card as though it is the final evolution in the Pokemon line. So if you just use Magnemite and this Magneton card in a deck you'll first have to get Magnemite into play (I reviewed the two Magnemite cards from this set the past two days) and then evolve Magnemite into Magneton.  I would actually prefer yesterday's Magneton card over this one because it has two moves and can do more damage consistently than this card can.  But nevertheless, if you want to use this card in your deck, I would include a 1-1 line of Magnemite and Magneton in a lightning type deck, if you use this card I would suggest using the first Magnemite card in this deck because it can confuse the defending Pokemon.  Once you get Magneton into the active Pokemon spot your only choice will be to use Knock Away every turn and hope to get some heads so you can do 40 damage every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card.  Compared to yesterday's Magneton card this card is definitely worse that is why I'm giving this card a lower rating.  This card has low hp, and only one decent move, overall compared to other stage 1 Pokemon cards it may be average to slightly below average but because I am comparing this card to the other Magneton card from the set I'm giving this card a 2.  If you use this Magneton with a Magnemite card from this set I would give it a 2 out of 5 rating.
