Cacnea -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Cacnea Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cacnea from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Cacnea is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Cacnea does not have Ability and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Poison Sting which poisons the defending Pokemon if you flip a heads for one grass energy card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cacnea is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Cacturne, 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, I would not suggest using Cacnea.  I say this because Cacnea only has one move which is based on a coin flip, if you do put Cacnea into the active Pokemon spot, preferably early in the game, and flip a heads when using Poison Sting, everything will be okay, and your opponent will have to put a damage counter on their Pokemon between each turn, however if you have bad luck, and can't flip a heads, you either have to waste two energy cards to retreat Cacnea or leave Cacnea out there until it is knocked out.

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.  Even though this card has a high hp, I am giving this card a low rating because the only move Cacnea has is not guaranteed to do anything at all, and if you need to retreat Cacnea it will cost you more than its one move.  So I would not recommend using this card in a deck.

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