Purrloin #83/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Purrloin Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Purrloin from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second consecutive Purrloin card I've reviewed from the Plasma Storm set.  This Purrloin is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Purrloin card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  So far, everything up to this point is exactly the same as yesterday's card.  The first move this card has is called Scout, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to look at your opponent's hand.  Purrloin's second move is called Fasten Claws, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and darkness, and does 20 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Purrloin is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Liepard, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, this Purrloin card would be used just like the other Purrloin card from this set would be in a deck...not at all.  I don't like either of the Purrloin cards from this set and neither should be used in a deck on its own.  This card has too low of hp and neither move is too spectacular.  If you choose to use this card in a deck, of course you're going to want to use Fasten Claws when you can because it is the only move on this card that does damage.  If you get this card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, Scout might be useful for you but I don't usually like these types of moves.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  The reason this card is below average for me is pretty similar reasons to yesterdays card, this card has too low of hp,  and neither move is very good, Scout doesn't do anything at all, whereas yesterday's Purrloin card could at least have a shot at confusing the defending Pokemon for one energy card, but this card's second move is better than yesterday's card.  So to reiterate, neither Purrloin card from this set is very good at all.  They are both below average basic Pokemon cards.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Purrloin from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Purrloin's stage 1 evolution in Liepard, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
