Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Liepard from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Liepard is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Liepard does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move this card has is called Silent Claw, this move requires one colorless energy card and lets you look at your opponent's hand, discard a supporter card from their hand if they have one and use that card as your move. Liepard's second move is called Fake Out, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and darkness, and does 30 damage plus paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Liepard is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get one of the two Purrloin cards from this set into play (I reviewed both of those cards the past few days) and then evolve Purrloin into Liepard. If you read the past couple of reviews you'll know that neither Purrloin card from this set is very good so it really doesn't matter which one you include with Liepard since both are equally as bad. Because Purrloin is so bad, I would recommend evolving Purrloin into Liepard on the bench and putting two energy cards on it there, that way when you move Liepard into the active Pokemon spot you can use Fake Out right away. This card would do better earlier in a game because it can paralyze the defending Pokemon and help you set up your Pokemon in the beginning of the game without taking damage from your opponent and it gives you the best chance of being able to discard a supporter card of your opponent's when using Silent Claw. With that being said, I don't think I would use this card or this Pokemon family from the Plasma Storm set in a deck at all. If you choose to, I wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line of Purrloin and Liepard.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card and a miserably line overall that I would stay away from at all costs. I particularly don't like this card because it has too low of hp and neither of its moves are more than average. So overall I am giving this Pokemon family from Plasma Storm a 1 out of 5 rating, they are not good at all.
