Grimer -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Grimer Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Grimer from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Grimer is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Grimer does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Lure Poison, this move requires one psychic energy card and it allows you to switch your opponent's active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon and poison that new active Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Grimer's second move is called Sludge Toss, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Grimer is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Muk, 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, I would not recommend using this card in a deck because the only move that does damage for sure is Sludge Toss and this move does way below average damage for the amount of energy cards needed to attack.  Grimer's first move, Lure Poison, is pretty similar to the trainer card Pokemon Catcher, and I would rather use a trainer card instead of this card, especially since Lure Poison depends on a coin flip.  However, if you choose to use this card in your deck, I wouldn't use more than one, and I would use whichever move I had enough energy cards to use.  Later in games, you may want to use Lure Poison once, get a weak Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot of your opponent's and then retreat Grimer the next turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  This card is very close to getting a 1 out of 5 rating because neither of its moves are good at all, but the reason I'm still giving this card a 2 out of 5 is because the card does have two moves and an above average hp, so it isn't the worst basic Pokemon card out there, but regardless, I still wouldn't use this card in a deck without looking at the Muk card first.

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