Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Watchog from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. This is the second of two consecutive Watchog cards I've reviewed from this set. Watchog 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 one colorless energy card retreat cost. This Watchog card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. So so far, this card is identical to yesterday's Watchog card, we will see how the moves fair. The first move this card has is called Second Bite, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on the defending Pokemon. Watchog's second move is called Low Kick, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Watchog is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get one of the two Patrat cards into play (I reviewed both Patrat cards from this set the past two days) and then evolve Patrat into Watchog. Like I mentioned earlier, there are two Watchog cards from this set, and after reviewing both cards, I definitely prefer this one over the other Watchog card from the set. If you read my Patrat reviews, you know that I'm not a fan of either, so this Watchog card has to be pretty special in order for me to use it with one of the Patrat's from Plasma Storm. So if I were to use this card in a deck, I would use it in any deck, I would use a 1-1 or 2-2 line of Patrat and Watchog, and I would definitely try and set up Watchog on the bench, then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Low Kick every turn until Second Bite does more damage to the defending Pokemon than Low Kick would. I like this card better than yesterday's Watchog because even though it has the same stats, and yesterday's card is a bit quicker, I like both of this Watchog cards moves better and it can do way more damage overall. I would actually use this card in a deck if I needed a couple more cards to reach 60 cards.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card. This card compared to yesterday's Watchog card is leaps and bounds better but overall it is still an average card. I like how this card fits into any deck and can do a fair amount of damage as long as you give the card some time to get set up. Overall, if I were to rate the Patrat and Watchog cards from this set I would give them a 2 out of 5 rating, they are not good at all.
