Abomasnow -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Abomasnow Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Abomasnow from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Abomasnow is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Abomasnow does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Razor Leaf, this move requires two grass energy cards and does 40 damage.  Abomasnow's second move is called Bang Heads, this move requires three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, and does 80 damage, however after using this move both Abomasnow and the defending Pokemon are confused.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Abomasnow is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Snover into play (I reviewed Snover from this set yesterday) and then evolve Snover into Abomasnow.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Snover was a below average Pokemon card mainly because both of its attacks required a fair amount of energy cards to use, so it was too slow for my liking.  So after knowing that and looking at this card, I can conclude that both of the Pokemon in this line are very slow so if you plan on using this line in your deck, you'll want to use a minimal amount of these cards, probably 1 each, and set them up on your bench.  One thing to make sure and note about this card is that it does not need any water energy cards to attack even though it is a water type card, both Snover and Abomasnow require grass energy cards to attack.  Like I mentioned, since both of the Pokemon in this line are pretty slow I would use 1 each of Snover and Abomasnow, but since Razor Leaf is the better move on this card, if you get Snover into your hand early, I would definitely recommend doing all you can to get Abomasnow into the active Pokemon to use Razor Leaf as soon as possible since this is an above average move.  If you are going to use this line in your deck, make sure to include cards that will remove confusion from you so you can actually use Bang Heads without unintended consequences.  I personally would not use this line in any type deck, because both Pokemon are pretty slow, and neither do much for me.

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.  Even though this card has an extremely high hp for a stage 1 card and has two moves that both do damage, I'm giving this card a below average rating because the card is pretty slow, and the move that does the most damage on this card, Bang Heads, may end up making Abomasnow do 80 damage to itself.  So overall, I would not use this line in a deck, and would give the entire line of Snover and Abomasnow from the Plasma Blast set a 2 out of 5 rating, both cards are 2 out of 5 in my opinion.

What do you mean "may end up making Abomasnow do 80 damage to itself"? Confusion does not work that way.

Also, being a card that does water damage yet uses grass energy is a potentially great asset that I don't think you gave much attention to.
