Tirtouga -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Tirtouga Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tirtouga from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Tirtouga is a restored, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Tirtouga's Ability is called Prehistoric Call which says that if you have a Tirtouga card in your discard pile, you may move that card from your discard pile to the bottom of your deck.  Besides the Ability, Tirtouga has just one move called Slam, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tirtouga is a restored Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Carracosta, 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 since this is a restored Pokemon, you'll have to make sure to have plenty of Cover Fossil trainer cards in your deck, since the only way you can move Tirtouga onto your bench is by playing that trainer card the same time you're moving Tirtouga to the bench.  So once you get Tirtouga to your bench, if you aren't using this card with Carrosta I wouldn't recommend having it in your deck at all, but if you are using it on its own, your only option is to put three energy cards on this card and use Slam when you can.  But because this card may end up doing 0 damage for three energy cards and Tirtouga has a high retreat cost, I would definitely not use this card in any situation.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an absolutely worthless Pokemon card.  This card has got to be one of the worst cards I have ever reviewed on my blog.  Not only does Tirtouga just have one move that requires three energy cards which makes this card extremely slow, but the only move it has could end up doing zero damage which is not good at all.  To make matters worse, this card isn't a basic Pokemon, and if you put it into the active Pokemon spot you have to waste 3 energy cards to retreat it.  So again, stay away from this card on its own.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
