Exploud -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Exploud Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Exploud from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Exploud is a stage 2, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Exploud does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Destructive Squad, this move requires three colorless energy cards and makes your opponent show their entire hand and have them discard any item cards in their hand.  Exploud's second move is called Round, this move requires four colorless energy cards and does 50 damage times the number of your Pokemon that have the Round Attack.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Exploud is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Whismur into play and then evolve it into Loudred before you can evolve Loudred into Exploud, 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 this family are very good in this set, neither card I would recommend using if you don't have to.  With that being said, Exploud has to be exceptional for me even to consider using this line from the Plasma Storm set in a deck, and after reading the card in the overview section of this post, this card is the worst card of all three Pokemon in this line, this card requires a ton of energy cards to attack and can hardly do any damage at all unless you plan on building a deck around this line, but who would want to do that when all of these Pokemon are terrible.  So if for some strange reason you want to use Exploud in your deck, prepare to attach a ton of energy cards to it on your bench, then in the active Pokemon spot you'll have to use Round every turn if you want to do damage, and you'll have to have another Exploud card on your bench if you want to do above average damage per turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a terrible stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Storm Pokemon card set.  This is definitely one of the absolutely worst stage 2 Pokemon cards I have reviewed since I've been reviewing Pokemon cards on my blog, I have no idea why anyone would want to use this card at all, it requires a massive amount of energy cards to use its moves, and has an extremely high retreat cost.  So stay away from this card and its pre-evolutions from this set at all costs.  I would give this whole family, Whismur, Loudred, and Exploud a 1 out of 5 rating.
