Deino #75/116 -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Deino Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Deino from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Deino cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Deino is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Deino does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Push Down, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and darkness, and does 20 damage, plus your opponent must switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Deino's second move is called Bite, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Deino is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Zweilous and a stage 2 evolution in Hydreigon, which I'll be reviewing the next two days after tomorrow's review of the second Deino card from this set, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions and also not have any prior knowledge of the other Deino card.  So on its own, I would not recommend using this Deino card in a deck.  In my opinion the card is too slow and has too high of a retreat cost to worthy use.  The only caveat to this would be if I was building a spread damage type deck, then I would consider putting one of these into the deck and using Push Down as a way to spread damage around.  So again I would not use this card in a deck, but if you choose to use it in any old darkness type deck, you'll just want to use the move that can give you the most damage every turn (or in the case of Push Down, can save you from major damage the next turn from your opponent).

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  There really isn't anything I like about this card except for its average hp, everything else isn't very good, it is too slow, has too high of a retreat cost, and does below average damage with both of its moves.  The only reason I'm giving this card a 2 instead of a 1 is that Push Down is a useful spread damage type move.  So if you're building a darkness type deck, I would definitely look elsewhere for a basic Pokemon.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Deino from the Plasma Freeze set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second Deino card from this set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
