Horsea -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Horsea Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Horsea from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Horsea is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Horsea does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Fin Smack.  This move requires one water energy card and does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Horsea is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Seadra and a stage 2 evolution in Kingdra, which I'll be reviewing Seadra tomorrow and Kingdra in a few days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, this card wouldn't be one to use in a deck on its own.  I say this because Horsea only has one move, and the only move that Horsea does have depends on coin flips, so it can not be depended on to consistently do damage to your opponent's Pokemon, so for that reason I would not use this card on its own.  With that being said, if you have this card in your deck for some reason, your only option will be to put one water energy card on it and use Fin Smack every 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.  Even though this card has average hp, and a low retreat cost, I am giving this card a below average rating based on the reasons I stated in the strategy section of this review.  For me, this card is not worth the risk of not being able to attack during one of your turns if you flip two tails in a row.

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