Klinklang -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Klinklang Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Klinklang from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Klinklang is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Klinklang's Ability is called Plasma Steel and it prevents all damage done to your own Pokemon from EX Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Klinklang just has one move called Heavy Bullet.  This move requires three energy cards, two metal and one colorless, and does 70 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin this move does 20 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Klinklang is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Klink into play and then evolve it into Klang before you can evolve Klang into Klinklang, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Neither of these two Pokemon cards are very good so I would recommend evolving this line on your bench, and you may want to keep Klinklang on your bench as long as possible so you can utilize its Ability just in case your opponent has an EX card in their deck, not only will Plasma Steel prevent all damage from those EX Pokemon but it may prevent your opponent from even deciding to set up one of their EX Pokemon.  So after you've had Klinklang on the bench for awhile and you've run out of good options for active Pokemon, I would move this card into the active Pokemon spot and use Heavy Bullet the whole time.  This is a pretty good move but Klinklang's retreat cost is fairly high so you'll want to make sure you don't have any other better options before moving Klinklang into the active Pokemon spot.  Because Klink and Klang from this set aren't that great, I would only use a 2-1-1 line of this family in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 2 Pokemon card that will be very useful in most metal type decks.  I am giving this card an above average rating because its Ability is very good and not only benefits Klinklang but all your Pokemon in play, and Klinklang's move, even though there is only one, does above average damage for the amount of energy cards required to use it.  Like I mentioned a couple of times in the strategy section of this post, Klink and Klang from this set are weak, so overall I would only give this line a 2 out of 5 rating.

Based on its physical appearance, the 2 main differences of Klang and Klinklang are the presence of a large spiked metal plate on the bottom held by a medium sized gear
