Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Seismitoad from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Seismitoad is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Seismitoad does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Seismic Punch, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage, plus it does 30 damage to all Pokemon in play. Besides Seismic Punch, Seismitoad's other move is called Splashing Turn, this move requires four energy cards, two each of colorless and water and does 80 damage, however after using this move you must switch Seismitoad with one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Seismitoad is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Tympole into play and then evolve it into Palpitoad before you can evolve Palpitoad into Chandelure, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days. The first two Pokemon in this line from Plasma Freeze are not very good at all, both are below average Pokemon cards. So with that in mind, I would not recommend using this card or this line at all in a deck. However if you choose to, I would use a line of 3-2-1 of Tympole, Palpitoad, and Seismitoad. I would evolve the line into Seismitoad on the bench, then put four energy cards on it. That way when you move it into the active Pokemon spot you could use Splashing Turn right away if you choose to. If you do choose to use this card in your deck, you'll either want to have few Pokemon on your bench, which is risky, or have most of the Pokemon in your deck have high hp. Otherwise if you use Seismic Punch more than once you'll probably knock out your own Pokemon. Since Seismic Punch does do spread damage, I would incorporate other spread damage type Pokemon in this deck with Seismitoad. That way 30 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon may knock out several of them at once. Because Seismic Punch only requires colorless energy cards, you could easily put this entire line in any type deck, not just a water type deck. But again, I would not choose to use this card in a deck, because neither of the Pokemon below Seismitoad are very good, and this card isn't that great in my opinion either.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set. I think that this card is average because it has an average hp, two moves which are both average, and an average retreat cost. The reason I wouldn't use this card in a deck is because overall, this line from Plasma Freeze is below average, overall I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating. This line requires too many energy cards to attack, and the moves this line has just aren't that great.
