Tropius -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Tropius Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tropius from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Tropius is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Tropius does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Return, this move requires one grass energy card and does 10 damage, plus it lets you draw cards until there are 6 cards in your hand.  Tropius's second move is called Energy Press, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 20 damage, plus 20 more damage for each energy attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tropius 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 is a great starter Pokemon card to use in your deck, and definitely the best card I have reviewed so far from the Plasma Blast set.  I would definitely include this card in all grass type decks I would make and I would have four of these in any of those decks.  With so many Tropius in your deck you're bound to get one into the active Pokemon to start the game, while in the active Pokemon spot you'll want to use whichever move you have enough energy cards for.  Both of Tropius's moves work very nicely early in games.  Return makes sure you have the best chance of getting the cards you need by making sure your hand is full early on.  Energy Press not only does average damage without depending on your opponent's Pokemon, but it does more damage the more energy your opponent has.  So this may prevent your opponent from attaching energy to their Pokemon or it might make you be able to knock out that Pokemon even faster.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is one of the best basic Pokemon cards I have reviewed in a very long time and a card I would make sure is in my deck.  I like everything about this card, its high hp, low retreat cost, and both of its moves.  You really can't go wrong with this card, so I highly recommend it!
