Drifloon -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Drifloon Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Drifloon from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Drifloon is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Drifloon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Creepy Wind, this move requires one psychic energy card and confuses the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Drifloon's second move is called Wind Blast, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 40 damage to any one of your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Drifloon is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Drifblim, 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, I would not recommend using Drifloon in a deck.  I say this because even though Drifloon has above average hp and two moves, this card cannot do much attack wise, and even if you spend three turns putting energy cards on Drifloon, it still can only do below average damage.  So I would not use this card like I said, if you want to use this card in a deck, make sure it is in a deck that does spread damage so Wind Blast will be more effective, I would then include no more than 2 Drifloon cards in that deck and start the game with one, and use the other to finish off your opponent's benched Pokemon with a bit of hp left.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  I mentioned above why I thought this card was below average, and again I would not use this card in a deck, especially since both of Drifloon's moves are below average and it has a high retreat cost for a basic Pokemon card.  In general this card should not be used, but if you're building a spread damage type, this card could be an average card in that deck.
