Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Seadra from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Seadra is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Seadra does not have an Ability and it only has one move. The only move that this card has is called Smokescreen, for one water energy card this card does 20 damages, plus if your opponent tries to attack during their next turn your opponent must flip a coin, if they get tails they can't attack at all.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Seadra is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Horsea into play (I reviewed Horsea from this set yesterday) and then evolve Horsea into Seadra. Seadra does have a stage 2 evolution in Kingdra 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 Seadra is the final evolution in this line. Just a note, Kingdra in this set is a dragon type Pokemon card that uses lightning and water type energy cards to attack, so you may want to consider putting this line in that type of deck, but I will be reviewing Kingdra in a couple of weeks. So if you read yesterday's Horsea review, you'll know that I thought Horsea was a below average Pokemon that I would not recommend using on its own. So after summarizing this Seadra card in the overview part of this post, I can say that I would not recommend using Horsea or Seadra together without using Kingdra. The reason I say this is because Seadra has a below average hp, and only one move that does below average damage for a stage 1 Pokemon card. So I would avoid this cards altogether. If you do choose to use Seadra in your deck, I would put a 1-1 or 2-1 line of Horsea and Seadra in a water type deck and try and evolve Horsea into Seadra as soon as possible during the game, move Seadra to the active Pokemon spot and use Smokescreen every turn. Because Seadra is quite fast, you should attack with this card right away, and hopefully your opponent will flip a few tails when trying to attack so Seadra will last longer in the active Pokemon spot and give you time to set up your other Pokemon in play.
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 Seadra card is very fast and has a low retreat cost, but 20 damage per turn really doesn't cut it for a stage 1 Pokemon card, and with only 80 hp, Seadra will get knocked out pretty fast. Overall, I would give the line of Horsea and Seadra from the Plasma Freeze set a 1 out of 5 rating, both cards are below average and should not be used in a deck.
