Nidoran #43/116 -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Nidoran #43/116 Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nidoran male 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 Hit Back, this move requires only one psychic energy card and does 30 damage if Nidoran has any damage on it, otherwise Hit Back does no damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nidoran male is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Nidorino and a stage 2 evolution in Nidoking , which I'll be reviewing the next few weeks, 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, if you're deciding whether to use Nidoran female or male in your deck I would suggest the female version of Nidoran.  However, with that being said, this card could still be used in a deck on its own, since it is quick, and as long as you get this card into the active Pokemon spot early in the game and your opponent can attack for one energy card, you should quickly be able to do 30 damage to that Pokemon and hopefully not it out in two moves before retreating Nidoran for one of your benched Pokemon.  So if I were to use this card in my deck, I wouldn't use more than one of them in a psychic type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Pokemon card.  Even though this card has a low retreat cost, an average hp, and a move that does good damage, I'm still giving this card a below average rating because the one move it does have can only attack in certain situations and if you're facing a spread type deck, Nidoran may never be able to attack while in the active Pokemon spot.  Another reason I'm giving this card a 2 is because Nidoran female is a bit better and I gave that card a 3 out of 5 rating.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
