Bagon -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Bagon Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bagon from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Bagon is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Bagon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Headbutt, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage.  Bagon's second move is called Dragon Claw, this move requires two energy cards, one each of water and fire, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bagon is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Shelgon and a stage 2 evolution in Salamence, 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, you would have no need to use this card unless you're specifically building a water and fire dual type deck.  If you're building a single type deck, keep this card away from it.  But if you are building that dual type deck, I could see having up to 2 of these cards in that deck.  This card is a good starter type Pokemon since it has a low retreat cost and two moves that require a maximum of two energy cards to use.  I would want to get this card into the active Pokemon spot early in the game and use whichever move you have the energy for.  The reason I would limit the use of this card to 2 would be the low hp this card has.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Other than having a below average hp, everything else on this card is average to slightly above average.  So if you're building a water and fire type deck and need a card or two to complete your deck, this card may just fit the bill.
