Kangaskhan -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Kangaskhan Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kangaskhan from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Kankaskhan is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Kangaskhan does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Call for Family, for one colorless energy card, this move allows you to search for 2 basic Pokemon from your deck and put them onto your bench.  Kangaskan's second move is called Comet Punch, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip four coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kangaskhan 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, you not only can use this card on its own, but in any type deck since it requires only colorless energy cards to attack.  I would definitely consider using 1 to 2 of these cards in a deck.  I would try and get this card into the active Pokemon spot early in the game and use Call for Family the first turn to get basic Pokemon on your bench, and then all other turns I would use Comet Punch.  More than likely you'll get at least 1 heads out of 4 coin flips, so this move should do average damage at the worst.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  I like that this card has a solid hp, and two good moves.  Usually I don't like the Call for Family moves, but this move should help you out early in games and since Kangaskhan is a colorless type Pokemon the fact it can use any energy card makes this move more desirable.  I really like Comet Punch, because at worst it is an average move, at best it can knock out most basic Pokemon in one move.  So if you're looking for 1 or 2 more Pokemon cards to put in your 60 card deck, this one should definitely be considered.
