Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Loudred from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Loudred is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Loudred does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. The first move this card has is called Supersonic, for one colorless energy card it confuses the defending Pokemon. Loudred's second move is called Hyper Voice, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 50 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Loudred is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Whismur into play (I reviewed Whismur from this set yesterday) and then evolve Whismur into Loudred. Loudred does have a stage 2 evolution in Exploud 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 Loudred is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Whismur was a miserable basic Pokemon card from this deck and a card that should not be used on its own. With that being said, this Loudred card really has to be good in order for me to want to use it with the Whismur card from yesterday, and this card is a bit better than yesterday's Whismur card but not much better, so I would not use this two Pokemon in a deck. If you choose to use this line in a deck, you can fit Whismur and Loudred into any deck, but since neither card is very good I wouldn't use more than 1 of each, maybe 2 Whismur. I would set up Whismur on the bench, since it is terrible, evolve it into Loudred and then put three energy cards on it so you can use Hyper Voice every turn when it is in the active Pokemon spot. If you are facing a very powerful Pokemon that has a move that does 60+ damage, you may want to use Supersonic instead.
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. This card is below average in my opinion because the main move on this card, Hyper Voice, does below average damage, and the retreat cost of this card is pretty high. Other than that, this card is decent, it does have two moves, is a colorless type Pokemon card, and has an average hp. So far, the line of Whismur and Loudred from this set gets a 1 out of 5 rating, I definitely wouldn't use these two cards in a deck.
