Porygon -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Porygon Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Porygon from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Porygon is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Porygon does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Tackle, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Porygon is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Porygon-2 and a stage 2 evolution in Porygon-Z, 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,this card would work perfectly as a starter type Pokemon in any deck.  I say this because the card requires only one colorless energy card, can attack right away, and has a solid hp.  Even though this card would work perfectly in any deck, I wouldn't use more than one of these cards in a deck without its evolutions, because Porygon is quite limited.  So if you have this card in your deck, you'll want to get the card into your active Pokemon spot early, use Tackle a couple of turns, set up your benched Pokemon, and retreat Porygon after attacking a couple of turns.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  This card really isn't anything special, just an average, solid card overall.  There really is nothing to complain about with this card other than it is limited.  The hp on this card is good, it has an average move, and a low retreat cost.  So this card can be used in any deck being built that just needs one more basic Pokemon card in it to make it a 60 card deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Porygon from the Plasma Blast set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Porygon's stage 1 evolution in Porygon-2, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Okay, so, you never posted a "Top 10 Pokemon cards from Base Set" video (at least I couldn't find such a video). You did post a video showing your favorite Pokemon (the 2011 one not the old 2009 one) in which Porygon from the Team Rocket Set is at #6. In the video with top 10 cards from Plasma Blast, this Porygon is at #9.
