Durant #92/135 -- 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 second move two Durant cards I've reviewed from this set.  This 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.  So so far, this card is exactly the same as yesterday's Durant card.  The first move this card has is called Call for Backup, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to search your deck for a Pokemon and put it into your hand.  Durant's second move is called Metal Jail, this move requires two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus it makes it so your opponent's active Pokemon cannot retreat during their next turn.

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.  Because this card only requires two energy cards maximum this card would be an alright starter Pokemon card to put into your deck.  You could put this card into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, use Call for Backup right away to get a Pokemon you need into your hand, then after that either use that move more times to set up the rest of your bench or add another energy card to this card and use Metal Jail.  The later in the game you get this card into the active Pokemon spot the more likely you'll be using Metal Jail instead of Call for Backup.  Compared to yesterday's Durant card, this one is much quicker and can do more damage for less energy cards.  I would actually consider using one of these cards in a deck as a starter type Pokemon but wouldn't use yesterday's card in a deck.  It really depends on what you like to do with basic Pokemon, if you like to attach many energy cards to them and use them late in games, yesterday's card is the one for you, if not today's card is much better.

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 am giving this Durant card the same rating as yesterday's Durant card.  Both are average cards, just involve a little bit different strategy.  On this card specifically, I like that it has two moves, a high hp, and low retreat cost.  I like that Durant can do 30 damage for only 2 energy cards but I wish Durant would be able to do some damage for one energy card.
