Rotom -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Rotom Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rotom from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Rotom is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rotom does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Electribonus, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to draw three cards from your deck if you discard a lightning type energy card from your hand.  Rotom's second move is called Poltergeist, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and lightning, and does 20 damage times the number of trainer cards your opponent has in their hand when they show you their hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rotom 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, I see this card as more of a trainer or supporter card than a Pokemon because both of Rotom's moves reflect some part of existing trainer cards.  So if you have similar supporter or trainer cards I would use those instead and find a different Pokemon card to use.  With that being said, I would possibly use 1 Rotom card in a lightning type deck, I would make sure to skimp a little on the amount of trainer cards in that deck and use this card in place.  So I would try and get Rotom in the active Pokemon spot early and use Electribonus to get extra cards in my hand, after that I would use Poltergeist to not only see the cards in my opponent's hand but to do damage.  Because this card isn't guaranteed to ever do damage I would be a little weary of using this card but like I mentioned earlier, I would use one maximum in a lightning type deck.

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 isn't guaranteed to do any damage with either of its moves, Rotom still does have two moves and an average hp, so I'm giving this card an average rating.
