Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Beedrill from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Beedrill is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a free retreat cost. Beedrill does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Swift Sting, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage plus 40 more damage plus confuses and poisons the defending Pokemon if Beedrill has full hp. Beedrill's second move is called Pierce, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Beedrill is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Weedle into play and then evolve it into Kakuna before you can evolve Kakuna into Beedrill, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days. Neither of the first two Pokemon in these line are even average in this set, so I would definitely recommend setting up Beedrill on the bench if possible. I would actually use this Pokemon line in a grass type deck, but I would definitely limit the amount of Pokemon from this line I have, I would only use a 1-1-1 line and never move Weedle or Kakuna into the active Pokemon spot. What I would do with this deck is I would have several Pokemon that have free retreat costs so that I could always move Beedrill back to the bench for free, remove all the damage it had on it then use Swift Sting most turns to not only do 60 damage plus confuse and poison that Pokemon. You're going to want to put three energy cards on Beedrill regardless so that you can do 60 damage per turn no matter if you're using Swift Sting or Pierce.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set. Compared to Weedle and Kakuna from this line, this card is amazing, but compared to other stage 2 cards out there this card is average. I don't like that Beedrill has a low hp, but I like that it has two moves, both capable of doing 60 damage and a free retreat cost. Overall, I would give this entire line a 3 out of 5 rating, even though Weedle and Kakuna are terrible, I still would recommend using this line in your deck, but as few as possible.
