Zubat #53/135 -- 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 second of two reviews I'll be doing of Zubat from this set.  This Zubat is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  This version of Zubat does have an Ability, it is called Free Flight and says that if Zubat doesn't have any energy cards attached to it it has a free retreat cost.  Besides the Ability, Zubat has one move called Wing Attack, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic and does 20 damage.

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, 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, and I actually prefer yesterday's Zubat card over this one even though this card has an Ability in addition to one move.  I would use yesterday's card because it has a higher hp, and it can attack quicker while healing damage from itself while attacking.  So if you want to use a Zubat card in your deck from the Plasma Storm set use just 1 of the other Zubat's in your deck on its own, I would use either though.  If you want to use this card in your deck, it is imperative to use this card immediately to start the game, because with only 40 hp, it will be knocked out in no time.  This card can do more damage than yesterday's card but it takes longer to attack, and with a lower hp you can't wait that much longer.  Zubat's Ability is nice if you need to move Zubat out of the active Pokemon spot, but with only a retreat cost of one energy card the Ability really don't help you much.  So after reviewing both Zubat cards from this deck, I can't recommend either of them highly.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card.  I am giving this card a 1 rating instead of a 2 because I gave yesterday's Zubat a 2 and this card in my opinion is a little worse than that card.  Hopefully tomorrow when I review Golbat it will make up for Zubat being so weak in this set.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of the second Zubat from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Zubat's stage 1 evolution in Golbat, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Since there isn't any data on this, I'll have to say it's false.

I'm going to say false, though there is no specific data on this, the sprites have nearly identical wing sizes.
