Remoraid -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Remoraid Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Remoraid from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Remoraid is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Remoraid does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Bubble Beam, this move requires two water energy cards and does 20 damage, plus paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Remoraid is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Octillery, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So on its own, I personally wouldn't use this card in a deck, but it wouldn't be the worse possible basic Pokemon card to use either.  I say this because, Remoraid does have a solid hp and retreat cost and the one move it does have, albeit slow, does do above average damage.  The reason I wouldn't use this card is because I prefer to use basic Pokemon in my deck that can attack for one energy card.  If you do choose to use this Remoraid card in your deck, I wouldn't use more than 2, and I would try and get the card into the active Pokemon spot early in games to not only do damage with Bubble Beam, but to paralyze the defending Pokemon and give yourself more time to set up your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, I would not use this card, but it really isn't that bad.  Bubble Beam is a good move, but I am too impatient to wait two turns to start attacking with a basic Pokemon like this Remoraid card.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

As far as fish is concerned, I guess:

Magikarp, Feebas, Barboach, Goldeen, Carvanha, Chinchou, Finneon.

Wailmer is not a fish (it's a whale), Tentacool is also not a fish.
