Riolu #75/135 -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Riolu Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Riolu from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Riolu cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Riolu is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Riolu does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Punch, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.  Riolu's second move is called Kick, this move does 20 damage for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Riolu is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Lucario, which I'll be reviewing in two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, there are actually two Lucario cards in this set, and I have not reviewed the other Riolu card from this set, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution or knowing anything about the other Riolu card from this set.  So on its own, this Riolu card would be a very good starter Pokemon card to add to your fighting type deck.  Since this card has two moves, both requiring small amounts of energy cards, you can move this card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, use Punch right away, then Kick the turns after that.  If I were going to use this card in my deck, I would include 2 to 4 of these in the deck in hopes to start the game with this card in my active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card.  This card is really good as a starter Pokemon because it has two moves and a move that can do 20 damage every turn for only two energy cards.  There really isn't any negatives about this card other than the normal things related to a basic Pokemon card, like not being able to do a massive amount of damage or having a high hp.  So again, I would definitely use this card in my deck.

So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Riolu from the Plasma Storm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second consecutive Riolu card review, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
