Treecko -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Treecko Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Treecko from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Treecko is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Treecko does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Pound, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.  Treecko's second move is called Reckless Charge, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 30 damage, however this move also does 10 damage to Treecko.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Treecko is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Grovyle and a stage 2 evolution in Sceptile, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, this card wouldn't be a bad card to add to a grass type deck if you have one spot left in your deck for a Pokemon card.  I say this because, Treecko has an average hp and it has two moves with a maximum damage of 30.  So what I would recommend doing if you have this card in your deck is to get Treecko into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, if you're facing a Pokemon with 60 hp or less, I would put two energy cards on Treecko and use Reckless Charge twice to knock it out.  Otherwise I would probably use Pound.  I wouldn't consider this a great starter Pokemon card, so I would not include 4 of these in a deck without adding in its evolutions, this card is definitely more of a filler card in a 59 card deck to make it 60.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  I like that this card has two moves and average everything, moves, hp, retreat cost, etc.  You can't really go wrong with having this card in your deck or even leaving it out.
