Aron -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Aron Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aron from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Aron is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aron does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Iron Head, this move requires one metal energy card and does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin until you get tails.  Aron's second move is called Headbutt, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aron is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Lairon and a stage 2 evolution in Aggron, 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, even though this card has an average hp and two moves, I would not recommend using it in a deck because the retreat cost is fairly high for the card and neither move is that great, the first move called Iron Head may not do any damage at all, and the second move called Headbutt does way below average damage for three energy cards.  If you were to use this card in a deck on its own, I would not use more than 1, I would try to start the game with Aron in the active Pokemon spot and hope to get lucky with Iron Head.

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.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this review, Aron does have some good things about it so that is why I'm giving it a 2 rating opposed to a 1.  I would not use it in a deck, but if you think you're lucky, Iron Head may be a pretty good move to use on a basic/starter type Pokemon in your metal type deck.
