Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kakuna from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Kakuna is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Kakuna does not have an Ability and it only has one move. The only move that this card has is called Hide, which requires one grass energy card and allows you to prevent all effects of an attack by your opponent during their next turn if you get a heads when you flip a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kakuna is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Weedle into play (I reviewed Weedle from this set yesterday) and then evolve Weedle into Kakuna. Kakuna does have a stage 2 evolution in Beedrill 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 Kakuna is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Weedle wasn't the greatest basic Pokemon card out there and that I wouldn't recommend using one in a deck, well after looking at this card there is no way ever you'd use this card in a deck if you didn't plan on using Beedrill. I say this because Kakuna cannot do any damage at all, all it does is 50% of the time prevent attacks on it, so if for some reason you move this card to the active Pokemon spot without Beedrill ready, you're either going to have to attach two energy cards to it to retreat it or let it get knocked out. So, as you can tell, I wouldn't use this card in a deck at all, because the only thing you can do with this card is Hide, which isn't a good strategy for winning any type of battle out there.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an extremely below average stage 1 Pokemon card. This card is below average in my opinion because it has a low hp, high retreat cost, and only one move that can't do any offense at all. So judging this card on its own without looking at Beedrill, this card is definitely one of the worst stage 1 Pokemon cards you can have in your deck. So so far, the line of Weedle and Kakuna get a very poor, 1 out of 5 rating from me.
