Nidoran #40/116 -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Nidoran #40/116 Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nidoran female from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Nidoran is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Nidoran does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Poison Sting, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic, and does 20 damage, plus poisons the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nidoran female is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Nidorina and a stage 2 evolution in Nidoqueen , which I'll be reviewing the next two 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, I probably wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck, unless you're specifically looking to build a deck with Pokemon that can inflict special conditions or you just need one more card in your deck to make it 60.  The reason this card isn't a for sure card for me in a deck is that it can't attack right away for one energy card, but Poison Sting is still a good move, so there is definitely merit on using this card in a deck on its own.  So if you do choose to use this card in your deck, you should put it into the active Pokemon spot early to do a good amount of damage to your opponent's starter Pokemon, the later in the game you use this card, the easier it will be for your opponent to knock it out.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card doesn't have a move that only requires one energy card to attack, I am giving this card an average rating because it has an average hp, low retreat cost, and the one move it does have, has the potential to poison the defending Pokemon besides dealing damage to it.  So again, if you're in one of the two scenarios I mentioned in the strategy section of this review, I think this card will work out very nicely for you.
