Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sceptile from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Sceptile is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Sceptile does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called X-Scissor, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 30 damage plus 40 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Sceptile's second move is called Energy Bloom, this move requires three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, and does 80 damage plus it heals 20 damage from each of your own Pokemon that have energy cards attached to it.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sceptile is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Treecko into play and then evolve it into Grovyle before you can evolve Grovyle into Sceptile, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days. The first two Pokemon in this line from Plasma Freeze work quite well together and I would definitely recommend using them in a deck with or without Sceptile, these two Pokemon are good to start the game with, because they are quick and can do a fair amount of damage. With that being said, I would definitely recommend using Sceptile in a deck with the two cards I mentioned earlier, I would continue the trend of getting this line into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible and then using Energy Bloom as often as possible. I would use a 4-3-2 line of Treecko, Grovyle, and Sceptile in a deck, I would try to get a Sceptile into the active Pokemon spot very early, since the entire line is quick, then later in the game when you have retreated several Pokemon that had damage on them, I would move the other Sceptile card into the active Pokemon spot and use Energy Bloom every turn this time healing those Pokemon you retreated.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set, and a card I would highly recommend using in any grass type deck out there. I like how this card has a solid hp, low retreat cost, and two good moves. I like that X-Scissor is quick and I especially like Energy Bloom's ability to not only do above average damage every turn but to heal your own Pokemon. Overall, I would give this entire line a 5 out of 5 rating, this is definitely the best line of grass type Pokemon from the Plasma Freeze set, and if you have a grass type, mostly Plasma Freeze Pokemon card deck, you'll definitely want this line in that deck.
