Absol -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Absol Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Absol from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Absol is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Absol does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mind Jack, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 20 damage plus 20 more damage for each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.  Absol's second move is called Fearsome Shadow, this move does 60 damage for three energy cards, one darkness and two colorless, plus when using this move, your opponent must show all the cards they have in their hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Absol is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  If you're building a darkness type or a Team Plasma type deck, you'll definitely want to use this card in that deck.  I would use Absol as a starter Pokemon in the deck, so I would put at least 2 of them in the deck.  I would try and get Absol into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible, and get two energy cards on it as soon as possible.  Both of Absol's moves are better if used early in the game, Mind Jack, will do more damage the more benched Pokemon your opponent has, and Fearsome Shadow reveals your opponent's cards.  Both will take advantage of your opponent early in the game.  I would use whichever move on Absol does more damage each turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card set.  I like that this card has a high hp, low retreat cost, and two very good moves.  Not only do both moves on this card do damage, but they each have a little something extra that they can do, that may prevent your opponent from doing certain things on their side.  So I would definitely recommend using this card in a deck, and you should definitely use this card in your deck.
