Clefable -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Clefable Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Clefable from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Clefable is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Clefable's Ability is called Moon Guidance and allows you to once per turn flip a coin, if you get a heads you can find a Pokemon in your deck that one of your Pokemon in play evolves into and evolve that Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Clefable just has one move called Moon Impact, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Clefable is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Clefairy into play (I reviewed Clefairy from this set yesterday) and then evolve Clefairy into Clefable.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Clefairy was a decent basic Pokemon card that could be used in a deck on its own and that you could move it into the active Pokemon spot right away.  With that being said, I would try and actually keep Clefairy on the bench if you're using it with Clefable so you can keep it on the bench for most of the game and just use Clefable's Ability.  That way you can include many stage 1 and stage 2 Pokemon in your deck and as long as you include 3 or 4 Clefairy cards and 3 or 2 Clefable cards in your deck, you should easily be able to get Clefable on your bench early in the game and use Moon Guidance several turns.  Of course, if you have Clefable in the active Pokemon spot your only choice will be to use Moon Impact every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card.  Even though Clefable's only move does below average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires, I'm still giving this card an average rating because I think Clefable's Ability more than makes up for its only move.  So if you find yourself building a deck with a lot of evolution cards in it, I would highly considering using this line in that deck.  Overall, I would give this line of Clefairy and Clefable from the Plasma Storm set a 3 out of 5 rating.
