Eelektross -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Eelektross Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Eelektross from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Eelektross is a stage 2, lightning type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Eelektross does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Crush and Burn, this move requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 30 damage times the number of energy cards you discard from any of your Pokemon in play.  Eelektross's second move is called Thunder Tempest, this move requires four energy cards, three colorless and one lightning, and does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip four coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Eelektross is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Tynamo into play and then evolve it into Eelektrik before you can evolve Eelektrik into Eelektross, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Neither of the two Pokemon I mentioned are that great from this set, both have low hp, so I would recommend setting up Eelektross on the bench if you're using it in your deck.  If you're using this line in a deck, I would not use more than a 2-1-1 line of Tynamo, Eelektrik, and Elektross.  I would get four energy cards on Eelektross on the bench, or load up energy cards on your Pokemon and only put two energy cards on Eelektross.  Then when Eelektross is in the active Pokemon position I would use Thunder and Tempest if you put four energy cards on Eelektross, if you only have two, I would wait until you need a one hit KO to win the game, then I would move Eelektross into the active Pokemon spot, use Crush and Burn and discard all the energy cards you have attached to your Pokemon in play.  I personally would not use this card or line in a deck because it is too slow and doesn't consistently do as much damage as I would like.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast Pokemon card set.  I do like that this card can do 200+ damage a turn, however the card isn't as consistent as I would like it to be and it does require a lot of energy cards to use, but still it isn't a bad card, just not one I would use.  Overall, I would give the line of Tynamo, Eelektrik, and Eelektross from the Plasma Blast set a 2 out of 5 rating, Tynamo was a 2, Eelektrik and Eelektross were both 3s, but overall, the line just doesn't have anything that stands out so that is why I'm giving it a 2 rating instead of 3.
