Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weavile from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Weavile is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Weavile does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Hail, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon. Weavile's second move is called Vilify, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 30 damage times the number of Pokemon you discard from your hand.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Weavile is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Sneasel into play (I reviewed Sneasel from this set yesterday) and then evolve Sneasel into Weavile. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Sneasel was a pretty solid basic Pokemon card that could be used on its own. Because of this, if you decide to use Weavile with Sneasel, you can still move Sneasel into the active Pokemon spot whenever you like, I would actually prefer getting Sneasel into the active Pokemon spot to begin the game and then evolving it into Weavile right away and using Hail every turn to spread damage around on your opponent's Pokemon. That way, later on in the game it will be that much easier to knock out your opponent's Pokemon. I would definitely include this line in a spread damage type deck, luckily, Weavile's Hail move can use any type of energy card so it will fit in great in whatever type of deck you're building. I like both cards from this line, so I would use a 2-2 line of Sneasel and Weavile.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card. I like that Weavile has two quick moves, that both require little energy cards. I like Hail a lot more than I like Vilify, but towards the end of the game if you need to finish off your opponent, Vilify might just do the trick. Just make sure if you plan on using Vilify that you use a trainer that lets you get Pokemon from your discard pile. So in a spread damage type deck, this card is an absolute must. Overall, I would give the line of Sneasel and Weavile a 4 out of 5 rating, individually I gave these two cards both 3s, but together they are above average.
