Lileep -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Lileep Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lileep from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Lileep is a restored, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lileep's Ability is called Prehistoric Call which says that if you have a Lileep card in your discard pile, you may move that card from your discard pile to the bottom of your deck.  Besides the Ability, Lileep has just one move  called Spiral Drain, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 20 damage, plus it heals 10 damage from Lileep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lileep is a restored Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Cradily, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own since this is a restored Pokemon, you'll have to make sure to have plenty of Root Fossil Lileep trainer cards in your deck, since the only way you can Lileep onto your bench is by playing that trainer card the same time you're moving Lileep to the bench.  So once you get Lileep on the bench, you'll want to get two energy cards and use Spiral Drain every turn.  Since I haven't reviewed Cradily yet, I'm looking at this card as a starter type card, and since Lileep requires a trainer card first, it isn't very quick, and you'll have to add more cards to your deck just for Lileep instead of having other Pokemon, so I would not recommend using this card on its own.  If this card wasn't a restored Pokemon, then I would use it as a basic, starter type Pokemon, but because it is a little slower, and the only move it has requires two energy cards instead of one, I will hold off on using this card in my deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to very slightly below average Pokemon card.  If this card were a basic Pokemon, I would definitely use 4 of them in my deck since it has a good hp and solid, stalling type move, however, since it requires a trainer in order to play, I would not recommend using this card, because it takes the 80 hp and two energy cards to attack and makes them seem even worse.
