Makuhita -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Makuhita Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Makuhita from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Makuhita is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Makuhita does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Continuous Slap, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin until you get tails.  Makuhita's second move is called Hammer In, this move does 60 damage for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Makuhita is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Hariyama, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, I would not use Makuhita on its own.  I say this because the first thing that jumps out at me when looking at this card is that the retreat cost is extremely high and the fastest Makuhita can do any damage is two turns.  So for a basic Pokemon card I would not use this one in a deck.  If you plan on using this card in your deck, I wouldn't use more than one, and I would set it up on the bench and put three energy cards on it so it could use Hammer In right away.  I don't trust Continous Slap enough to use that move very often.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is another way below average basic Pokemon card.  This card isn't as bad as the Onix card I reviewed from this set, but it still is pretty miserable.  It is way too slow in my opinion for a basic Pokemon, and even though Hammer In is an average move, with only 80 hp, there is no reason at all to put three energy cards on this card because it will get knocked out right away by the time you get that many energy cards on it.
