Flareon -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Flareon Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Flareon from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Flareon is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Flareon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Vengeance, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each Pokemon in your discard pile.  Flareon's second move is called Heat Tackle, this move requires three energy cards, one fire and two colorless, and does 90 damage, however this move does do 10 damage to Flareon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Flareon is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Eevee into play, like I mentioned in yesterday's Leafeon review, there are actually two Eevee cards in this set but I have not reviewed either of them yet, you may also want to consider using one of the two Eevee cards from the Dark Explorers set, and then evolve Eevee into Flareon.  Because I haven't reviewed either Eevee cards from this set yet I won't talk now about which one of those cards are best to use, but regardless of which one you use, if you want to use Flareon in a deck, it would be best to set up Flareon on the bench because Flareon isn't that quick and it will take at least two energy cards for Flareon to attack.  I would put three energy cards on Flareon on the bench and either save it towards the end of the game so you can do 70 damage a turn using Vengeance, or move it into the active Pokemon spot as soon as you get three energy cards on it and use Heat Tackle.  If you do use this card in your deck you'll want to make sure you have ways to heal damage from Pokemon so you can use Heat Tackle several turns without making Flareon that much easier to be knocked out.  I don't see this card as a card you could build a deck around, but it would definitely fit well into any fire type deck or dual type deck out there.  Like Leafeon from yesterday, I would suggest using a 2-1 or 2-2 line of Eevee and Flareon in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card.  In my opinion this card is a little weaker than Leafeon from this set, but Flareon is still a solid stage 1 Pokemon card.  I like how this card has an above average move, and that this card has two moves.  Neither move this card has is anything spectacular, thus the average rating.
