Voltorb -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Voltorb Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Voltorb from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Voltorb is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Voltorb does not have Ability and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Rollout, this move requires two energy cards to attack, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Voltorb is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Electrode, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, this card could be used in a deck if you need just one more card to make it 60 cards in the deck, however it wouldn't be one of the first cards on my list of cards that I would want to put into a deck.  If you do have this card in a deck, I would not use more than 1 or 2 of them in a lightning type deck, I would get this card out into the active Pokemon spot early, put two energy cards on it, and use Rollout every turn, until it is either knocked out or you can retreat it for one of your set up benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card can't attack with only one energy card, I'm giving this card an average rating still because Voltorb has an average hp, low retreat cost, and the one move that it does have is an average move, and more importantly for a basic Pokemon, a move that does not depend on coin flips.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Voltorb from the Plasma Freeze set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Voltorb's stage 1 evolution in Electrode, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
