Conkeldurr -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Conkeldurr Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Conkeldurr from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Conkeldurr is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Conkeldurr does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Facade, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage plus 60 more damage if Conkeldurr is poisoned or burned when using this move.  Conkeldurr's second move is called Drain Punch, this move requires four energy cards, two each of fighting and colorless, and does 80 damage plus heals 20 damage from itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Conkeldurr is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Timburr into play and then evolve it into Gurdurr before you can evolve Gurdurr into Conkeldurr, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of these Pokemon are a little below average and both Pokemon are quite slow in attacking so if at all possible I would evolve this line on the bench so you can get four energy cards on Conkeldurr without it having to take any damage, that way you can move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Drain Punch right away and hopefully last quite a few turns by healing 20 damage from Conkeldurr every turn and doing 80 damage to the defending Pokemon.  The only time it makes sense to use Facade is if you only have three energy cards on Conkeldurr or if it is burned or poisoned.  After reviewing all three Pokemon in this line, I would not base a deck around this line, all the Pokemon are too slow and none of them are very good.  I can't even suggest using this line as a role player in your deck because it will require too many spots in your deck to include this whole line.  If you do choose to use this line, a 3-2-1 line of Timburr, Gurdurr, and Conkeldurr would be best.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card.  It has a good hp and it does have two moves, but there really isn't anything on this card that makes it better than most stage 2 cards.  This card has a high retreat cost, and both of its moves require a good amount of energy cards.  So like I mentioned earlier, I would not use this Pokemon family in a deck, I would only give this whole family a 2 out of 5 rating, there are definitely better cards out there to use in your fighting type deck.

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

There is no physical theme deck for this pokémon, but in the TCGO there's a Basic Orange deck with Conkeldurr, and it's pretty sweet

Peter Luong said...

There's no current theme deck that includes a Conkeldurr card and seeing as it is not in the Plasma Blast card list, we probably won't be seeing it anytime soon. However, there is an online deck on PTCGO called Basic Orange that does include a Conkeldurr card.

There has never been a theme deck that included a Conkeldurr card. (However, the Basic Orange deck in TCGO has one.)

Conkeldurr has only been featured in the Basic Orange deck in TCGO. That would make it the most recent theme deck that includes it.
