Yamask #54/116 -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Yamask Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Yamask from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Yamask cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Yamask is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Yamask card does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Transfer Pain, this move requires one psychic energy card and allows you to move 1 damage counter from any of your own Pokemon to one of your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Yamask is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Cofagrigus, which I'll be reviewing in two days since there is another Yamask card to review, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet (there are actually two Cofagrigus cards in this set), I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, this card should be a staple starter Pokemon card for your spread damage type deck.  You'll want to move this card into the active Pokemon spot right away or a turn or two into the game, get some damage on your own Pokemon then start spreading the damage around with Transfer Pain.  Because this card needs to have damage in play to do damage, I would only include 2 of these cards maximum in a psychic/spread damage type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  I am giving this card an average rating because this card is both very good and very bad at the same time.  If you aren't using this card in a spread damage type deck, this card won't be that great because this Yamask card has below average hp, a high retreat cost, and only one move that has to have damage on your own Pokemon before it can be used.  But because Transfer pain essentially heals your own Pokemon and damages a variety of your opponent's Pokemon, this card would be an above average card to have in a spread damage type deck.  You'll have to wait until tomorrow's review to see what Yamask card I like better from this set.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Yamask from the Plasma Freeze set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second Yamask card from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
