Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weezing from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Weezing is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Weezing's Ability is called Aftermath and says that if Weezing is knocked out by your opponent, your opponent must discard the top 3 cards of their deck. Besides the Ability, Weezing has one move called Smogbank, this move requires two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 20 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Weezing is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get one of the two Koffing cards from this set into play (I reviewed both of those cards the past few days) and then evolve Koffing into Weezing. If you read the past couple of reviews you'll know that I like both Koffing cards from this set and that depending on the strategy you're going to use in your deck will determine which one you'll use, but whichever Koffing card you have will more than likely work well with Weezing. Because both Koffing cards are good in this set you can move it into the active Pokemon spot right away, however I would try and have it so Weezing is on your bench and you can then move it into the active Pokemon spot towards the end of the game so if your opponent knocks Weezing out they may end up losing if they run out of cards in their deck. This card would work perfectly in a spread damage type deck, just use Smogbank every turn. Because Weezing is good at the start of games using Smogbank and at the end of games by utilizing its Ability, I would probably use a 3-2 line of Koffing and Weezing in a psychic type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card and a Pokemon line that I would definitely include in a psychic type deck. I love how this Weezing card has an above average hp, a great Ability that will hopefully prevent your opponent from attacking you, then a very good move that does damage to every single one of your opponent's Pokemon in play. If I was to knock this card at all, it would be for its retreat cost which is two energy cards. Overall, you can't go wrong with using this Pokemon family from the Plasma Storm set in your deck, I give the entire line a 5/5 rating.
