Aggron -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Aggron Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aggron from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Aggron is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aggron does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Knock Back, this move requires two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless, and does 50 damage, plus your opponent must switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Aggron's second move is called Aura of the Land, for four energy cards, two each of metal and colorless, this move does 80 damage, plus 20 damage to each benched Pokemon, yours and your opponent's.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aggron is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Aron into play and then evolve it into Lairon before you can evolve Lairon into Aggron, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  The previous two Pokemon in this family are both below average and should not be used without Aggron, we'll see if we should even use Aggron since those cards are below average.  One thing to consider before putting this card into your deck is that both Lairon and Aggron have extremely high retreat costs, so if you do use this line in your deck you'll want to limit the number of cards you use from this line.  I would only use this Pokemon line if you plan on building a deck based around this Aggron card, so the deck would be a spread damage type deck that includes many Pokemon with high hp so it can withstand the friendly damage from Aura of the Land.  I would definitely set up this line on the bench since it has such a high retreat cost, you don't want to put it into the active Pokemon spot until Aggron can do at least 50 damage for two energy cards.  If I were to base a deck around this line, I would use a 3-2-2 line of Aron, Lairon, and Aggron.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast Pokemon card set.  This card is definitely the best card in the Aron, Lairon, and Aggron family from the Plasma Blast set, I like that this card could be the centerpiece for a spread damage type deck, but I do not like the fact that this card spreads damage to its own team, so that is one reason I'm giving this card only an average rating, that and the fact it has a high retreat cost.  This card's two moves do work perfectly together, but overall the line of Aron, Lairon, and Aggron from this set is average at best, individually I gave these cards a 2, 2, and 3, altogether they get a 3.

Aggron was a rare holo in the following sets:
EX Ruby & Sapphire
EX Legend Maker
EX Power Keepers
Mysterious Treasures
Triumphant
Dragons Exalted

if Aggron-EX counts, he was in:
EX Sandstorm
EX Crystal Guardians

and if Team Magma's Aggron also counts, that was in:
EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua

so that would be a total of 6 normal Aggrons, and 9 total Aggrons if the others count.
