Dratini -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Dratini Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dratini from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Dratini is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Dratini does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Shed Skin, this move requires one grass energy card and heals 20 damage from Dratini.  Dratini's second move is called Tail Smack, this move requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dratini is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Dragonair and a stage 2 evolution in Dragonite, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So before I talk too much strategy, you'll want to note even though Dratini is a dragon type Pokemon card, the TCG does not have any Dragon type energy cards yet, so if you want to use Dratini and potentially its evolutions, you'll want to build a dual type deck that includes both grass and lightning type energy cards because Dragonair and Dragonite require both lightning and grass type energy to attack.  So let's get into the strategy, since this card is a basic Pokemon card and we haven't reviewed its evolutions yet, this card wouldn't be the worst to use in a deck because it does have two moves, both being average and this card can use those moves quickly.  However this card isn't that great so if I were to use this card on its own, I wouldn't use more than 1 in a deck, I would try and get it in the active Pokemon spot to start the game, use Shed Skin to stall my opinion and allow me to set up my own benched Pokemon and then use Tail Smack when your bench is sufficiently set up.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card has below average hp, I still would consider this card average because it has a low retreat cost, and two moves that both do average healing/attacking when used.  So you can't go wrong if you want to use this card in a deck, but there are definitely better cards than this out there to use.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Dratini from the Plasma Freeze set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Dratini's stage 1 evolution in Dragonair, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
