Zekrom -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Zekrom Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zekrom from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Zekrom is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Zekrom does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mach Claw, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one lightning, and does 50 damage, plus this move is not affected by another Pokemon's resistance to lightning type Pokemon.  Zekrom's second move is called Fusion Belt, this move requires four energy cards, three colorless and one lightning, and does 80 damage, plus if you have Reshiram on your bench, this move does 120 total damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zekrom is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  However because this card is extremely slow to attack and doesn't do a good amount of damage unless you attach four energy cards to it, I would use no more than one of these in a deck.  Looking at this card by itself I would give an average rating, but combine it with Reshiram from this set and I would give it a much higher rating.  So that is what I would do, if I were building a fire and lightning dual type deck, I would make sure to include 1 each of Reshiram and Zekrom, then set both of those Pokemon on the bench, and when one goes into the active Pokemon spot I would use Fusion Belt every turn and do 120 damage, then when Zekrom is closed to getting knocked out, I would retreat it and move Reshiram into play.  I would not recommend using this card without Reshiram, because it is an average card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card set.  Like I mentioned some in the strategy section of this post, this card is pretty average overall, neither move Zekrom has is real great, and nothing really stands out on this card, unless you use it with Reshiram, then 80 damage for four energy cards turns into 120 damage for four energy cards which is a huge difference.
