Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Magnezone from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. This is the second of two Magnezone cards I'll be reviewing from this set, yesterday I reviewed the other Magnezone Pokemon Card from Plasma Storm. Magnezone is a stage 2, lightning type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This Magnezone card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move this card has is called Double Assist, this move requires one lightning energy card and does 30 damage, besides doing the 30 damage, Magnezone allows you to put 2 basic energy cards from your discard pile onto one of your Pokemon. Magnezone's second move is called Tumbling Attack, this move requires three energy cards, one lightning and two colorless, and does 70 damage unless you get a heads when you flip a coin then this move does 90 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Magnezone is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Magnemite into play and then evolve it into Magneton before you can evolve Magneton into Magnezone, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed all four of the cards these two Pokemon have in this set the past couple of days. Please read those reviews to see which ones I liked of the two versions of each. If you can I would try and evolve Magnezone on your bench, but since this card can attack for only one energy card you can put it in the active Pokemon pretty quickly. If you have energy cards discarded you may want to consider using Double Assist but if you want to do the most damage every turn I would use Tumbling Attack. You could definitely include this Pokemon line in a deck that has Pokemon that discard energy cards when they attack, because when Magnezone is in the active Pokemon spot, because it has a high hp, you should be able to use Double Assist several times before you need to retreat. So I would definitely suggest using this card in a lightning type deck, both Magnezone cards from this set are good, so I would either use a 2-1-1 line or a 3-2-2 line and use both Magnezone cards from this set.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a slightly above average stage 2 Pokemon card that will do well in most lightning type decks out there. I like that this card has a good hp and has a lower retreat cost than yesterday's Magnezone card. Even though this card does not have an Ability, I like that this card has two moves, the first move can greatly help out your team and it is a quick move, and the second move can do major damage and knock out most Pokemon in two turns. So overall, I like the Pokemon family of Magnemite, Magneton, and Magnezone from this set, and would give these cards a 4 out of 5 rating, it is a great line.
