Bisharp #74/116 -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Bisharp Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bisharp from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second Bisharp card I've reviewed from this set.  This Bisharp card is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Bisharp does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Cut Down, this move requires two colorless energy cards, and does 30 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin you can discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.  Bisharp's second move is called Slicing Blade, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bisharp is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pawniard into play (I reviewed both Pawniard cards from this set the past few days) and then evolve Pawniard into Bisharp.  If you read my Pawniard reviews you'll know that I thought both cards from this set are average and both can be used in a deck on their own, so when choosing which one to use with this Bisharp card, you'll have to think about wanting a safer or a riskier card to use.  So whichever Pawniard card you choose, I would initially recommend you use that Pawniard card with yesterday's Bisharp card since it is better than this one.  You can read my review on that card to see what I would do strategy wise.  But if you don't have that Bisharp card, and you only have this one, that is okay too.  In that case, I would use 2 Pawniard cards and 1 Bisharp card and try and evolve Pawniard into Bisharp on the bench get three energy cards on it and then move it to the active Pokemon spot and use Slicing Blade every turn.  This card isn't as fast as yesterday's card, that is why I'm suggesting evolving this line on the bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card.  Compared to yesterday's Bisharp card, this one is definitely a let down, but compared to most stage 1 Pokemon cards out there, this one is still above average.  This card still has a low retreat cost, and both of its moves do above average damage, but just not as well as yesterday's Bisharp card.  So again, if you're building a darkness type deck, I would suggest using the other Bisharp card from this set, but this card isn't that bad that it shouldn't be used if you have it.  So overall, I would give this Bisharp card and the Pawniards from this set a 4 out of 5 rating.
