Kingdra -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Kingdra Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kingdra from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Kingdra is a stage 2, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Kingdra does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dragon Vortex, this move requires only one colorless energy card, and does 20 damage times the number of water energy and lightning energy cards in your discard pile.  After using this move, you get to move all of those energy cards back into your deck.  Kingdra's second move is called Tri Bullet, this move requires one water energy card, and does 30 damage to 3 of your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kingdra is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Horsea into play and then evolve it into Seadra before you can evolve Seadra into Kingdra, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them in the past few weeks.  Both of those Pokemon are water type Pokemon, whereas this Kingdra card is a dragon type Pokemon, but all three cards require water energy cards.  The first two Pokemon in this line from Plasma Freeze aren't the greatest, so if you're looking to build a deck that includes Kingdra, you'll definitely want to evolve those two Pokemon into Kingdra on the bench.  If I were to use this line in a deck, I would include a 3-2-2 line of Horsea, Seadra, and Kingdra.  I would evolve them on my bench, and only attach one energy card to Kingdra.  I would put this card in a dual type deck that included water and lightning type Pokemon as well as Pokemon that spread damage.  I would put both Kingdra's on the bench, I would move one Kingdra into the active Pokemon spot early and use Tri Bullet every turn to spread damage around, then I would either retreat that Kingdra before it is knocked out or let it get knocked out, and later in the game when a lot of my energy cards are in the discard pile I would move Kingdra into the active Pokemon spot and use Dragon Vortex once then Tri Bullet after that.  You can easily include supporters and Pokemon that draw cards from your deck or discard cards from your hand or the active Pokemon spot, because with Dragon Vortex you can replenish a big chunk of your deck in one move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set.  This card reminds me a lot of the Kingdra card I built a deck around and posted that deck video on YouTube.  This card has a good hp, really low retreat cost, and two quick, above average moves.  I could definitely see myself building a deck around this card/family, this would be a spread damage, very quick attacking deck, that would knock out several of your Pokemon out at once.  Overall, I would give this Pokemon family from the Plasma Freeze set, Horsea, Seadra, and Kingdra a 4 out of 5 rating, even though Horsea and Seadra are below average, Kingdra makes this line above average.
