Jolteon -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Jolteon Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Jolteon from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Jolteon 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.  Jolteon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Pin Missile, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins.  Jolteon's second move is called Electri-Defuse, this move requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 40 damage, plus if the Pokemon you're attacking is an EX Pokemon, that Pokemon cannot attack during their next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Jolteon 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 Jolteon.  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 Jolteon in a deck, I would recommend you set Jolteon up on your bench, that way you can put two energy cards on it there, and keep it on your bench to prevent your opponent from using EX Pokemon or if they do choose to use EX Pokemon, moving Jolteon into the active Pokemon spot and use Electri-Defuse so that that EX Pokemon cannot attack.  Because Jolteon's moves are both quite quick, I would suggest using a 2-2 line of Jolteon and Eevee in a deck, I would try and use Jolteon to start the game, since it is fast and can do a fair amount of damage, possibly 80 damage per turn, then I would save a Jolteon card for the bench to prevent EX cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set.  This card is pretty standard hp wise, retreat cost wise, and that it has two moves.  However this card is getting an above average rating because I like both of Jolteon's moves and I think they can really benefit you in a game, especially when facing powerful EX Pokemon.
