Duosion -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Duosion Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Duosion from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Duosion is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Duosion does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Focused Wish, this move requires two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 20 damage, plus if you get a heads when flipping a coin, the move does 40 damage instead of 20.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Duosion is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Solosis into play (I reviewed Solosis from this set yesterday) and then evolve Solosis into Duosion.  Duosion does have a stage 2 evolution in Reuniclus that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Duosion is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review of Solosis, you'll know that I thought that card was absolutely worthless and one of the worst cards not only in this set but of all time.  With that being said, if you plan to use this Duosion card in a deck, you'll definitely want to set this card up on the bench instead of evolving an active Solosis.  So knowing how bad Solosis is from this set, I would not recommend using Duosion with that card in a deck.  Duosion is definitely better than Solosis, but it still has an extremely low hp, and only one move.  If for some reason you want to use this card in a deck, use a 1-1 line of Solosis and Duosion, and make sure to get two energy cards on Duosion before you move it into the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card.  Even though this card has basically a basic Pokemon's hp, I am giving this card a 2 rating instead of a 1 because the only move that Duosion does have is an average to above average move, but overall I would not use this card in a deck because this card doesn't have a high hp and either does Solosis, so I would give the entire line so far a 1 out of 5 rating, Solosis received a 1, Duosion a 2.

So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Duosion from the Plasma Blast set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Duosion's stage 2 evolution in Reuniclus which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Congrats to Lucas for winning, what I meant in the question was what set before Plasma Blast was the most recent set to have this Pokemon family, so Noble Victories is the correct answer.
