Zubat #52/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Zubat Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zubat from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive reviews I'll be doing of Zubat from this set.  Zubat is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Zubat does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move this Zubat card has is called Spiral Drain, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage, plus it heals 10 damage from itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zubat is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Golbat, and a stage 2 evolution in Crobat, which I'll be reviewing the next few days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with those Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet and I haven't even reviewed the second Zubat card in this set, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I wouldn't recommend using this Zubat card in a deck, even though it has a pretty decent move, this card is quite limited on what it can do and with only 50 hp, I would like something higher to use as a starter Pokemon.  However, if you choose to use this card in your deck, it will work out okay because this card can fit in any type deck because it only requires colorless energy cards to attack.  You would try and get this card in the active Pokemon spot early, and then use Spiral Drain every turn so that you can do damage, heal yourself, and stock your benched Pokemon with energy cards.  Because this card doesn't have the greatest hp I definitely wouldn't use more than 1 of these in a deck on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card.  Even though like I mentioned earlier, Zubat does have one good move, I am still giving this card a below average rating because it has a low hp and it only has the one move, you won't be able to do much later in a game with a card that can only do 10 damage every turn.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Zubat from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second Zubat card from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
