Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Masquerain from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set. Masquerain is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Masquerian's Ability is called Tool Reversal and allows you as often as you'd like during your turn to move a Pokemon Tool card from one of your Pokemon back into your hand. Besides the Ability, Masquerain just has one move called Bug Bite, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Masquerain is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Surskit into play (I reviewed Surskit from this set yesterday) and then evolve Surskit into Masquerain. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Surskit was a miserable basic Pokemon card, a card that should not be used in a deck, and a very poor card to have number one in the Plasma Blast set. Because of this, this Masquerain card has to be very good for me to want to use it with Surskit. And unfortunately, this card isn't that good in my opinion, so I would skip this Pokemon line completely when looking at grass type Pokemon cards to use in your deck from the Plasma Blast set. However, if you choose to use this card in your deck, I wouldn't include more than 1 each of Surskit and Masquerain, and I would evolve Surskit into Masquerain on the bench, and put three energy cards on it there. While on the bench, make sure to utilize Masquerain's Ability, if you even use Tool cards in your deck, and when you get three energy cards on it, move it to the active Pokemon spot.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card. This is a below average card in my opinion because it has below average hp, a poor Ability, and just an average move. Pair this card with Surskit, and this family is worthless from the Plasma Blast set, I wouldn't give this line more than a 1 out of 5 rating. The reason I didn't give this Masquerain card a 1 out of 5 is because Bug Bite requires only colorless energy cards and Tool Reversal is an okay Ability if you plan on using Tool cards in your deck. But again, I stress, stay away from this line if possible.
