Vanilluxe -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Vanilluxe Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vanilluxe from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Vanilluxe is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Vanilluxe does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called ChillMAX, this move requires only one colorless energy card and does 60 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin for each energy card attached to Vanilluxe.  Vanilluxe's second move is called Cold Breath, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 40 damage plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vanilluxe is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Vanillite into play and then evolve it into Vanillish before you can evolve Vanillish into Vanilluxe, 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 average to below average.  So with that in mind, if you choose to use Vanilluxe in your deck I would recommend evolving those Pokemon into Vanilluxe on your bench, that way you can attach as many energy cards as you'd like to Vanilluxe so you can potentially do 240 or more damage per turn, which would not out all Pokemon in the TCG to date.  I probably wouldn't use Vanilluxe in a deck just because the line as a whole isn't that great, but if I did use it in my deck, I would use just 1 of each Pokemon in the line, set up Vanilluxe on the bench, and get at least four energy cards on it.  I would move this card into the active Pokemon spot as soon as I get four energy cards on Vanilluxe then I would use ChillMAX every turn and hope I flip all heads.  You could also move this card into the active Pokemon spot when it only has two energy cards on it, put the defending Pokemon to sleep with Cold Breath then use ChillMAX after that when you keep adding energy cards to it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set.  Usually I don't give above average ratings to Pokemon cards with moves that depend on coin flips but ChillMAX is an exception to my rule, plus Vanilluxe's other move is pretty good too.  I like that this card is quick, can do major damage, and has a low retreat cost.  So I would definitely recommend using Vanilluxe in a deck, however you have to play this card with both Vanillite and Vanillish, and overall I would give this entire line a 3 out of 5 rating, and might not be so likely to play this line in a deck.
