Metang -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Metang Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Metang from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Metang 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 two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Metang does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Psy Bolt, this move requires one psychic energy card and does 10 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.  Metang's second move is called Psypunch, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Metang is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Beldum into play (I reviewed Beldum from this set yesterday) and then evolve Beldum into Metang.  Metang does have a stage 2 evolution in Metagross that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Metang is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Beldum was an average basic Pokemon card that I would recommend using in a deck if you need one more psychic type Pokemon card in your deck.  So after knowing that, and reading the overview section of this post, I would not recommend using Metang with Beldum unless you plan on using Metagross as well.  I say this because neither of Metang's moves are very good.  Psy Bolt is average at best and Psypunch is definitely below average.  If you do choose to use this line in a psychic type deck, I wouldn't use more than a 2-1 line of Beldum and Metang.  I would try and get this line out in the active Pokemon spot early and use Psypunch most turns, and while you're waiting to get three energy cards on Metang, definitely use Psy Bolt so you can spend some time setting up your benched Pokemon while your opponent cannot attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though this card has a good hp, average retreat cost and two moves, I'm still giving this card a below average rating because neither of Metang's moves make me want to include it in a deck.  So after looking at Beldum and Metang from the Plasma Freeze set, I would give them a 2 out of 5 rating.

Beldum becomes metang at level 20 and metang becomes metagross at level 45(unless you push b button or found in the wild at its previous form or have an everstone then take off the everstone or level it up again to evolve it).
