Cofagrigus #57/116 -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Cofagrigus Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cofagrigus from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two Cofagrigus cards I've reviewed from this set.  Cofagrigus is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  So so far, this card is extremely similar to yesterday's card.  However, this Cofagrigus does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Elongating Arms, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 30 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon.  Cofagrigus's other move is called Crazy Slap, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip four coins.  So this move has the potential to do 160 damage per turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cofagrigus is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Yamask into play (I have reviewed both Yamask cards from this set the past couple of days) and then evolve Yamask into Cofagrigus.  Like I mentioned earlier there are two Cofagrigus cards in the Plasma Freeze set and in the rating section of this post I will compare both of the cards rating wise.  If you read my Yamask reviews, you'll know that I thought both Yamask cards were about average, but if you're going to use this Cofagrigus card in your deck, you could easily use both of the Yamask cards from this set.  But what I would recommend doing is building a spread damage type deck, I would include 4 Yamask cards in the deck, 2 of each Yamask card from this set, and 3 Cofagrigus cards, 1 of this card and 2 of yesterday's card.  I would want to use this Cofagrigus card first in the active Pokemon spot to make sure my opponent's Pokemon had plenty of damage on them, then later in the game I would move in the other Cofagrigus card and use its Ability to spread even more damage around.  So this Cofagrigus card would be the attacker and the other Cofagrigus card would be the finisher.  So again, I would use this Cofagrigus card's Elongating Arms move to get damage on the opponent's Pokemon, then retreat it, and use the other Cofagrigus's Ability.  I would use a 4-3 line of Yamask and Cofagrigus.

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.  I really like this card because it cannot only do spread damage with Elongating Arms which greatly helps the other Pokemon in this line, but it can potentially do 160 damage per turn which is very good for only three energy cards.  Altogether, I would give the Yamask and Cofagrigus line a 4 out of 5 rating.  Both Yamask cards received 3's and both Cofagrigus cards received 4's.
