Umbreon -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Umbreon Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Umbreon from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Umbreon is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Umbreon's Ability is called Dark Shade and says that each of your Team Plasma Pokemon in play get 20 more hp.  Besides the Ability, Umbreon just has one move called Darkness Fang, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Umbreon 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 Umbreon.  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 Umbreon in a deck, I would definitely use this card in a Team Plasma deck.  I would include almost all Team Plasma cards in the deck and then have two of these in the deck.  I would try and get one of the Umbreon cards on the bench as soon as possible and then use its Ability every turn to make all of your Pokemon have 20 more hp.  I would definitely put three energy cards on Umbreon to use Darkness Fang, because this is an above average move and one that requires mostly colorless energy cards.  So again, I would definitely recommend using this Eevee-evolution in a deck, it will definitely help your team out mightily.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set and there aren't many stage 1 Pokemon cards out there that I like better than this Umbreon card.  I like that Umbreon's Ability greatly improves your entire team (if they're Team Plasma Pokemon) so you don't even have to move it into the active Pokemon spot to feel the effects of this card.  But if you do move the card into the active Pokemon spot, you'll be able to do above average damage every turn with Darkness Fang.  Just make sure to get three energy cards on this card before you move it to the active Pokemon spot so you can attack right away, but even if you don't, it does have above average hp and a very low retreat cost.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
