Lampent -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Lampent Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lampent from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Lampent is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lampent does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Live Coal, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage.  Lampent's second move is called Searing Flame, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, and does 40 damage, plus it burns the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lampent is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litwick into play (I reviewed Litwick from this set yesterday) and then evolve Litwick into Lampent.  Lampent does have a stage 2 evolution in Chandelure 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 Lampent is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Litwick was a below average Pokemon that I would not recommend using on its own.  So after summarizing this Lampent card in the overview part of this post I can say that I would not use this card in the line of Litwick, Lampent, and Chandelure without really taking a good look at Chandelure first and never using the first two cards in this line without Chandelure.  For some reason if you choose to use this card in your deck, I would evolve Litwick into Lampent on the bench, put three energy cards on Lampent and then use Searing Flame whenever it is in the active Pokemon spot.  You may want to include this card in a deck that has other Pokemon that can burn your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though this card has a low retreat cost and two moves I am still giving this card a below average rating because it has a low hp, and neither of its moves are very good.  Especially when looking at Litwick and Lampent from the Plasma Freeze set as a pair, they are not good at all, and together I would give a 1 out of 5 rating, both cards are below average and should not be used in a deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Lampent from the Plasma Freeze set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Lampent's stage 2 evolution in Chandelure which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

It's not a Street Lamp. Street lamps are not household objects. It resembles an Argand Lamp or Quinquet.
