Espeon -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Espeon Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Espeon from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Espeon is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Espeon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Psy Alert, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage and allows you to replenish your hand so it has 5 cards in it.  Espeon's second move is called Shadow Ball, this move requires one psychic energy card and does 40 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Espeon is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Eevee into play, like I mentioned in earlier Eevee-evolution reviews from this set, there are actually two Eevee cards in this set but I have not reviewed either of them yet, you may also want to consider using one of the two Eevee cards from the Dark Explorers set, and then evolve Eevee into Espeon.  Because I haven't reviewed either Eevee cards from this set yet I won't talk now about which one of those cards are best to use, but regardless of which one you use, if you want to use Espeon in a deck, I would suggest using it in a spread damage type deck, with at least one other Pokemon in the deck that can do damage to all of your opponent's Pokemon at once.  That way, when you get Espeon into the active Pokemon spot, you can pick out your opponent's weakest Pokemon and use Shadow Ball on it and hopefully knock it out within a turn or two.  The only time I would use Psy Alert would be if I didn't have a psychic energy card on Espeon, or I really needed more cards in my hand.  I would use a 2-2 line of Eevee and Espeon in a deck.

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 from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set.  This card is pretty standard hp wise, retreat cost wise, and that it has two moves.  However, even though Espeon's moves don't do that much damage, I like that they are both extremely quick, and I like how this card can greatly aid in a spread damage type deck.  So so far, from the Plasma Freeze set, it seems like several of the Eevee evolutions are very good.
