Lapras -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Lapras Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lapras from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Lapras is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lapras does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Cleanse Away, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move heals 30 damage from each of your benched Pokemon.  Lapras's other move is called Surf, this move requires four energy cards, three colorless and one water, and does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lapras 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 wouldn't include too many of these cards in a deck because the fastest Lapras can do any damage is four turns, and if you move Lapras into the active Pokemon spot to just use Cleanse Away, you're going to have to discard both of those energy cards when retreating.  I would include 1 Lapras card in a water type deck, during play, I would make a point to retreat most of my Pokemon before they are knocked out, then later in the game I would move Lapras into the active Pokemon spot, use Cleanse Away a turn or two, then retreat it.  Surf is about an average move, but I definitely wouldn't plan on using the move since it requires so many energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  I do like that this Lapras card can quickly heal all of your Pokemon at once, but other than that, I don't like much else about this card.  It is a slow card overall, and has a high retreat cost for a basic Pokemon.  If you do choose to use this card in a deck, I wouldn't move it into the active Pokemon spot if the opposing Pokemon can do 50 or more damage per turn, because then you'd only be able to heal 30 damage from each of your Pokemon, instead of 60 damage if you could use it two turns in a row.
