Chinchou -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Chinchou Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chinchou from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Chinchou is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Chinchou does not have Ability and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Static Shock, this move requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chinchou is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Lanturn, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, this card could be used in a deck if you need just one more card to make it 60 cards in the deck, however it wouldn't be one of the first cards on my list of cards that I would want to put into a deck.  This card is extremely similar to the Voltorb card I reviewed from this set the other day, the only difference being this card has 10 more hp but a one energy card higher retreat cost.  So if you do need one more Pokemon to use in your lightning type deck and are debating between Voltorb or Chinchou, I would recommend using Chinchou, because more than likely you're going to want to retreat Chinchou and if you need two energy cards on it to attack, giving up those two energy cards to retreat isn't that big of deal.  So if you do get this card in the active Pokemon spot you'll have to use Static Shock every turn when you have the necessary energy cards because that will be your only choice with this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card can't attack with only one energy card, I'm giving this card an average rating still because Chinchou has above average hp, and an average move.  So you can't go really good or really bad with this card so I would only use this card as a filler card for your deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Chinchou from the Plasma Freeze set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Chinchou's stage 1 evolution in Lanturn, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
