Relicanth -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Relicanth Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Relicanth from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Relicanth is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Relicanth does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Fossil Hunt, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to put 2 item cards that have Fossil in the name in your discard pile back into your hand.  Relicanth's second move is called Water Gun, this move does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Relicanth 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, you'll definitely want to use this card in a deck if you're using restored Pokemon in your deck like Tirtouga from this set, that way you can utilize Relicanth's Fossil Hunt move and get your restored Pokemon into play faster.  Other than using this card in a deck with restored Pokemon, this card wouldn't be a bad starter type Pokemon, and if you plan on using this card as a starter type Pokemon I would use 2 of these in a water type deck.  I would try and get this card into the active Pokemon to start the game and put two energy cards on it and use Water Gun every turn until you get your benched Pokemon set up, then you can retreat Relicanth for only one energy card.

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.  This card would be a very good basic Pokemon card to have in your water type deck.  I am giving this card an above average rating because it has a high hp, low retreat cost, and two moves, which is much better than most basic Pokemon out there.  So if you need one or two more Pokemon cards in your 60 card deck, this card may be worth your while.
