Onix -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Onix Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Onix from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Onix is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Onix doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that Onix has is called Tackle, this move does 30 damage for three colorless energy cards.  Onix's second move is called Swing Around, this move requires four energy cards, three colorless and one fighting, and does 60 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Onix is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Steelix, which I'll be reviewing when I review the metal type Pokemon cards from this deck, 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 recommend using Onix in a deck, even though it has a good hp, both of its moves do below average damage for an extreme amount of energy cards, and the retreat cost on Onix is too high in my opinion.  So I would not use this card in a deck.  If you choose to, I would recommend setting up Onix on the bench and getting at least three energy cards on it before you move it to the active Pokemon spot.  If you think you'll use this card with Steelix, you'll want to include some metal type energy cards in your deck to use with Steelix and some fighting type energy cards to use with Onix.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a terrible basic Pokemon card.  The only good thing about this card is that it has 100 hp, other than that, everything is way below average.  Its retreat cost is high, Tackle should do twice as much damage, and unless you're lucky with Swing Around, you may end up doing no damage at all after putting four energy cards on Onix.  So I would recommend staying away from this card when looking for fighting type Pokemon cards to use in your deck.
