Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electrode from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Electrode is a stage 1, lightning 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. Electrode's Ability is called Magnetic Draw, which says that once during your turn you may replenish your hand until you have four cards in it. Besides the Ability, Electrode has one move called Electro Ball, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one lightning, and does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Electrode is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Voltorb into play (I reviewed Voltorb from this set yesterday) and then evolve Voltorb into Electrode. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Voltorb wasn't the greatest basic Pokemon card out there but I still thought it could be used in a deck on its own. So after saying that, if you want to use Electrode in your lightning type deck, I would include a 2-2 or 2-1 line of Voltorb and Electrode. Preferably I wouldn't want to move Voltorb into the active Pokemon spot before it has two energy cards on it or Electrode until it has three energy cards on it. I would prefer to evolve Voltorb into Electrode on the bench and then use Electrode's Ability if needed on the bench before putting into the active Pokemon spot to use Electro Ball every turn.
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. Even though Electrode's Ability isn't the greatest and may never be used, I'm still giving this card an average rating because Electrode has an average hp, low retreat cost, and an average move. Altogether, the line of Voltorb and Electrode from the Plasma Freeze set would get a 3 out of 5 rating, it is an average line overall, but one that could be in many lightning type decks out there.
