Solrock -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Solrock Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Solrock from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Solrock is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Solrock does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Heat Burn, this move does 20 damage and burns the defending Pokemon for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless.  Solrock's second move is called Explosion, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, and does 90 damage, however it also does 90 damage to itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Solrock is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  Since this card does not have a move that only requires one energy card to attack, you'll want to set up this Pokemon on your bench so you don't have to go turns without being able to attack while in the active Pokemon spot.  Once you get two energy cards on Solrock you can move it to the active Pokemon spot.  I would recommend using Heat Burn every turn until right before getting knocked out by the defending Pokemon, right before this happens instead of using Heat Burn I would use Explosion, even though you'll knock yourself out, hopefully you'll be able to knock out the defending Pokemon as well or at least take a good chunk out of it.  I personally would not use this card in a deck, but if you choose to I would not use more than 1 in a deck.

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 like that this card has above average hp for a basic Pokemon, and that it has two moves.  Neither move really is anything special and with a three energy card retreat cost it really deters me from using this card in a deck.  But overall this card is average and could contribute to a deck if need be.
