Quagsire -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Quagsire Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Quagsire from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Quagsire is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Quagsire's Ability is called Laid Back, which says that any damage done to Quagsire is reduced by 20.  Besides the Ability, Quagsire has one move called Mud Gun, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if Quagsire has any fighting energy cards attached to it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Quagsire is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Wooper into play (I reviewed Wooper from this set yesterday) and then evolve Wooper into Quagsire.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Wooper wasn't the greatest basic Pokemon card out there because it only had one move and the only move it had was based on coin flips.  So if you choose to use Quagsire in your deck, I would evolve Wooper into Quagsire onto the bench.  I would use a 2-1 line, and try and move Quagsire into the active Pokemon spot as soon as it gets three energy cards on it, not only will Quagsire's Ability help it out in the active Pokemon spot to last longer and allow you set up your benched Pokemon, but if you attach a fighting energy card to Quagsire it can do 90 damage per turn.  So if I were to use this card in a deck, I would make sure to use it in a dual type deck that included water and fighting type Pokemon.  With that being said, I would not use this Quagsire 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.  I do like that this card has quite a high hp for a stage 1 Pokemon, especially with its Ability, and I like that this card can do 90 damage per turn, but the reason I'm giving this card a below average rating is because the card is too slow in my opinion and if you do put it in the active Pokemon spot, it will take a lot to retreat it back to your bench.  So when you look at Wooper and Quagsire from this set combined, neither card is either average, so overall this line would get a 2 out of 5 rating, I would not use this line in a deck.
