Genesect -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Genesect Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Genesect from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Genesect is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Genesect does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Call for Family, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for 2 basic grass type Pokemon in your deck and put them onto your bench.  Genesect's second move is called Jet Impact, this move requires three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, and does 80 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Genesect 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, I would definitely include this card in a grass type deck, but I wouldn't include 4 of these since the main move you'll want to use with this card is Jet Impact and since that move requires three energy cards, I'd only use 2 Genesect maximum in a deck.  In the Genesect deck I would create, I would also include the basic Pokemon Tropius from this set, that way if you get Genesect into the active Pokemon spot, you can use Call for Family a couple of turns to get those Tropius cards on your bench before you start attacking the defending Pokemon with Jet Attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  I really do like everything about this card, the only reason I'm giving this card a 4 instead of a 5 is because Call for Family doesn't do any damage.  But that move will definitely help you early on in a game, and Jet Impact will do above average damage every single time you use it.  So if you're looking for a basic Pokemon card to use in your grass type deck, I would highly recommend using this one.
