Kecleon -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Kecleon Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kecleon from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Kecleon is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 70. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Kecleon's Ability is called Color Change and says that as long as Kecleon is your active Pokemon, Kecleon's type is whatever type your opposing Pokemon is.  Kecleon's only attack is called Imittack, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to use one of your opponent's active Pokemon's moves, as long as your have the energy cards for it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kecleon is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, this card eerily reminds me of Ditto, which is a unique concept in the Anime, but never seems to work well in the TCG or games, because of this I would not recommend using Kecleon in a deck.  The reason I would not recommend using Kecleon is because the hp of Kecleon never changes, so if you're facing a stage 2 Pokemon that requires three energy cards to attack, if you spend the time getting three energy cards on Kecleon, more than likely that stage 2 Pokemon will be able to knock Kecleon out by the time you get three energy cards on Kecleon.  So I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  However if you choose to use this card in a deck, I would keep Kecleon on the bench until it has at least three energy cards on it, that way when it is in the active Pokemon spot it should be able to use most of the moves its opponent has.  Kecleon's Ability will be especially against types of Pokemon that are weak to their own type, like Dragon type Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card set.  Despite being able to use any of your opponent's active Pokemon's moves, I do not think highly of this card.  I personally don't like this card and would never use it in a deck, but the reason I'm giving this card a 2 instead of a 1 rating is because Kecleon does have its place in the TCG, and can make an impact in the right situation.
