Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Grovyle from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Grovyle is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Grovyle does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Pound, this move does 20 damage for one colorless energy card. Grovyle's second move is called Cut, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 30 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Grovyle is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Treecko into play (I reviewed Treecko from this set yesterday) and then evolve Treecko into Grovyle. Grovyle does have a stage 2 evolution in Sceptile that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Grovyle is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Treecko was an average basic Pokemon card, that isn't necessarily a good starter Pokemon in a deck, but could be used on its own. After reviewing this card in the overview section of this post, I would definitely recommend adding Treecko and Grovyle to a grass type deck that is in need for some speed. I would put a 2-2 or 3-2 line of Treecko and Grovyle in that deck and try to get Treecko evolved into Grovyle as soon as possible and start attacking as soon as possible in the active Pokemon spot with Grovyle. You'll want to use whichever move you have enough energy cards to use, it is nice that Grovyle only requires two energy cards total, so you should easily be able to use Cut every turn.
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. Even though this card is average, I am still recommending to use this card in a deck because Grovyle works extremely well with Treecko in this set and together I would give both cards a 4 out of 5 rating. Grovyle can provide your deck with some quickness as well as some power early on in a game.
