Durant #91/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Durant Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Durant from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Durant cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Durant is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 70. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Durant card does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Gnaw, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage.  Durant's second move is called Hard Crunch, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, and does 40 damage plus 30 more damage if the defending Pokemon has any damage on it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Durant is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  In tomorrow's Durant review I'll be comparing the two Durant's from this set so you'll know which one(s) to use in a metal type deck.  Because this is a basic Pokemon card and it does not have a move that requires only one energy card you're going to try and set this card up on the bench if you're using it in your deck.  If you can, attach three energy cards to Durant so you can attack every turn by using Hard Crunch, this move if used consecutively on the same Pokemon will do 55 damage per turn.  It would be a good strategy to have this card be in a spread damage type deck so when Durant is in the active Pokemon spot all the defending Pokemon it faces has at least 10 damage on it that way it can do 70 damage per turn.  I would not use this card in most decks, I may include at most 1 in a metal type deck that has spread damage type Pokemon in it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card set.  I like that this card has a good hp, average retreat cost, and two moves.  I don't like that this card doesn't have a speedy move and that Hard Crunch does below average damage for the energy cards it requires if the defending Pokemon doesn't have damage on it.  Like I mentioned earlier, I wouldn't use this card in a deck, but it wouldn't be that bad in one if you have to use it.
