Throh -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Throh Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Throh from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Throh is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Throh does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Freestyle Strike, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.  Throh's second move is called Shoulder Throw, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, and does 80 damage minus 20 damage for each colorless energy card in the defending Pokemon's retreat cost.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Throh is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, this card is a little slower for a basic Pokemon card since it requires at least two energy cards to attack, but it does have the potential to do above average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires to attack.  I personally would not use this card in a deck because there isn't the greatest of chances that this card will actually do a very big amount of damage, but if you choose to use this card in your deck I would recommend using 1 or 2 maximum.  You could just include this card in your deck to counterbalance your opponent's strategy of using Pokemon with free or low retreat costs, by using Shoulder Throw it will prevent this.  If your opponent doesn't have Pokemon like that in their deck, this card is best used early in the game when for two energy cards it can potentially do 60 damage per turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  This card is much more powerful than most starter type Pokemon out there, but because Throh has such a high retreat cost and both of its moves may end up doing nothing, this card definitely isn't more than average and it isn't a card I would use in any of my decks.
