Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vanillish from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Vanillish is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Vanillish does not have an Ability and it only has one move. The only move that this card has is called Surefire Spin, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage plus if you get two heads when flipping two coins this move will do 60 damage total instead of only 20.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vanillish is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Vanillite into play (I reviewed Vanillite from this set yesterday) and then evolve Vanillite into Vanillish. Vanillite does have a stage 2 evolution in Vanilluxe 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 Vanillish is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Vanillite was an average card that could or could not be used in a deck and it wouldn't make that much of a difference. After summarizing this Vanillish card in the overview part of this post, I would stick with that same strategy about Vanillite and not use Vanillish at all. So I would not recommend using a Vanillish in your deck. If you choose to, you can move Vanillite into the active Pokemon spot whenever it has two energy cards on it and then when you get Vanillish in your hand evolve Vanillite into Vanillish and then use Surefire Spin every turn. I would not use more than a 1-1 line of Vanillite and Vanillish 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 the potential to do 60 damage per turn for only two energy cards, I'm giving this card a below average rating because Surefire Spin more than likely will only do 20 damage per turn, and since Vanillish has 80 hp, which is below average, it won't last long in the active Pokemon spot once you get it there. So overall, Vanillite and Vanillish from this set will get a 2 out of 5 rating.
