Palpitoad -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Palpitoad Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Palpitoad from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Palpitoad is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Palpitoad does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Vibration, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage.  Palpitoad's second move is called Suspicious Soundwave, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 30 damage, plus confuses the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Palpitoad is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Tympole into play (I reviewed Tympole from this set yesterday) and then evolve Tympole into Palpitoad.  Palpitoad does have a stage 2 evolution in Seismitoad that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Palpitoad is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Tympole was a below average Pokemon that I would not recommend using on its own.  So after summarizing this Palpitoad card in the overview section of this post, I would not recommend using this card or the Tympole card I reviewed yesterday without using Seismitoad.  If you do want to use this card in a deck, you'll want to evolve Tympole into Palpitoad on your bench because Palpitoad requires a fair amount of energy to attack, and once you get Palpitoad into the active Pokemon spot, you'll want to use Suspicious Soundwave when you have three energy cards on Palpitoad, Vibration otherwise.  Just to reiterate though, I would not use this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though this card has an average hp, and two moves, I am giving this card a below average rating because neither of its two moves are very good.  Both require a fair amount of energy and both do below average damage.  So after looking at both Tympole and Palpitoad from this line, I would rate these two Pokemon as a 2 out of 5.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Palpitoad from the Plasma Freeze set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Palpitoad's stage 2 evolution in Seismitoad which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
