Squirtle -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Squirtle Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Squirtle from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Squirtle is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Squirtle does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bubble, this move requires one water energy card and paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Squirtle's second move is called Water Gun, this move for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Squirtle is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Wartortle and a stage 2 evolution in Blastoise, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I would not include this in a deck.  I say this because not only does Squirtle have a below average hp, but the first move that actually does damage on this card requires two energy cards, so you'll have to wait a couple of turns before making your mark on the game.  If you do plan on using this card in a water type deck without its evolutions, I would definitely not use more than one of these.  I would try and get Squirtle into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, use Bubble first to try and prevent your opponent from attacking, then Water Gun every turn after that.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  This card is below average because of its poor one energy card move, Bubble, as well as the fact it is slower to do damage and because of this its already low hp will seem even lower.  So I would not recommend using this card in a deck on its own, but I didn't give this card a 1 out of 5 rating because Squirtle does have two moves, and a low retreat cost, so it definitely isn't a horrible basic Pokemon card.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
