Nidoqueen -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Nidoqueen Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nidoqueen from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Nidoqueen is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Nidoqueen does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Poison Horn, this move requires two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 50 damage plus it poisons the defending Pokemon.  Nidoqueen's second move is called Double Stomp, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 60 damage plus 30 more damage for each heads you get when you flip 2 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nidoqueen is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Nidoran into play and then evolve it into Nidorina before you can evolve Nidorina into Nidoqueen, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  The first two Pokemon in this line from Plasma Freeze are average to below average.  So with that in mind, if you choose to use Nidoqueen in your deck I would recommend evolving those Pokemon into Nidoqueen on your bench, that way you can have three energy cards on Nidoqueen and potentially no damage on Nidoqueen when you move it into the active Pokemon spot and then you can start using Double Stomp right away.  This card and line would work very well in a "poison" type deck, and if this line is used in that type of deck you could probably even use Nidoran and Nidorina in the active Pokemon spot before evolving them into Nidoqueen.  So if you were to use this card in a deck, I would use a 3-2-1 line of Nidoran, Nidorina, and Nidoqueen.  I would always use Double Stomp if possible, unless the defending Pokemon would not be knocked out by 120 damage in one turn.  Just keep in my if you use this line, that both Nidorina and Nidoqueen have very high retreat costs.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set.  Even though Nidoqueen doesn't have the highest of hp for a stage 2 Pokemon card and it does have a high retreat cost, I am giving this card an above average rating still because I really like both of Nidoqueen's moves.  Neither move is too slow, and both do way above average damage or at least have the potential to.  So overall, I would give this entire line from the Plasma Freeze set, Nidoran, Nidorina, and Nidoqueen a 3 out of 5 rating.  Nidoran is a 3, Nidorina is a 2, and Nidoqueen is a 4 out of 5.
