Froslass -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Froslass Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Froslass from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Froslass is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Froslass's Ability is called Cursed Glare and says that as long as Froslass is in the active Pokemon spot, your opponent cannot attach any special energy cards to their Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Froslass just has one move called Blizzard, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Froslass is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Snorunt into play (I reviewed Snorunt from this set two days ago) and then evolve Snorunt into Froslass.  Just to note, Snorunt does have two stage 1 evolution cards in this set in Glalie and Froslass, I reviewed Glalie from this set yesterday and will be comparing the two stage 1 evolutions of Snorunt later in this section.  So, if you read the review on Snorunt from this set, you'll know that I thought Snorunt was an average basic Pokemon card that had two good moves, but its retreat cost was a little too high for my liking.  So after knowing this and summarizing Froslass in the overview section of this post, I would definitely recommend using Froslass and Snorunt from the Plasma Blast set in a water type deck.  I would definitely want to include Froslass in a deck that specializes in spread damage type attacks and/or a deck that is trying to prevent Team Plasma attacks.  So I would include 2 each of Snorunt and Froslass and try to get Froslass into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible.  I would of course try and put the defending Pokemon to sleep with Snorunt, then setup my benched Pokemon while using Froslass's Blizzard attack every turn, then when my opponent's Pokemon have 20 or more damage on them, I would retreat Froslass and use a Pokemon that does even more damage to benched Pokemon, or a card that can move your opponent's benched Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot so I could one hit KO them.  The reason I would include two Froslass in a deck would be so  I could use one of these cards for the strategy I just outlined, and save one Froslass in case my opponent wants to move Plasma Energy onto their Pokemon.  So comparing both stage 1 evolution cards of Snorunt from this set, Froslass is definitely the better one, especially with so many Team Plasma decks out there.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card.  This card really is excellent in my opinion, I love Froslass's Ability, even though you may never use it in a game, it still will greatly help you in the scenario when you're facing a Team Plasma heavy deck.  So this card would be a staple for me in any spread damage type deck I would try and build.  So overall, the line of Snorunt and Froslass from the Plasma Blast set would get a 4 out of 5 rating, Froslass was a 4, Snorunt was a 3, I highly recommend using this line.

I am going to take a guess and go with uncommon. I could be wrong, never really using that particular pokemon in any of my deacks, and I just recently got back into the game. But after reading your review, I may look into using it now. My Youtube name is MajinAlex and here is the link

Thanks Mate.
