Glaceon -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Glaceon Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Glaceon from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Glaceon is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Glaceon's Ability is called Freeze Zone and says that each of your Team Plasma Pokemon in play have two colorless energy cards less in their retreat cost.  Besides the Ability, Glaceon has one move called Icy Wind, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 60 damage plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Glaceon is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Eevee into play, like I mentioned in earlier Eevee-evolution reviews from this set, there are actually two Eevee cards in this set but I have not reviewed either of them yet, you may also want to consider using one of the two Eevee cards from the Dark Explorers set, and then evolve Eevee into Glaceon.  Because I haven't reviewed either Eevee cards from this set yet I won't talk now about which one of those cards are best to use, but regardless of which one you use, if you want to use Glaceon in a deck, it would be best to set up Glaceon on the bench, that way you can utilize Glaceon's Ability to help all of your other Team Plasma Pokemon in play.  So based just on Glaceon's Ability, I would make sure to include many Team Plasma Pokemon in your deck, in preferably a water based deck, but because Icy Wind requires only one water energy card this card may work well in most type decks.  So I would recommend trying to keep Glaceon in play at all times to utilize its Ability, but if you get this card into the active Pokemon spot quite quickly, this card can put the defending Pokemon to sleep thus allowing you to set up your benched Pokemon.  I would use this card in a deck, and use a 2-2 line of Eevee and Glaceon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card and definitely one of the better cards I've reviewed so far from this set.  I like that this card not only has a great Ability that will help your whole team out (if you use many Team Plasma Pokemon) but its only move Icy Wind is a very good move that not only does a fair amount of damage but puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.  So if you're building a Team Plasma deck or water type deck, this card should definitely be in it.
