Porygon-Z -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Porygon-Z Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Porygon-Z from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Porygon-Z is a stage 2, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Porygon-Z's Ability is called Plasma Transfer and allows you to as often as you'd like during your turn, to move one Plasma Energy card from one Pokemon to another.  Besides the Ability, Porygon-Z has one move called Tri-Attack, for three colorless energy cards, this move does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 3 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Porygon-Z is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Porygon into play and then evolve it into Porygon-2 before you can evolve Porygon-2 into Porygon-Z, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of the Pokemon in this line that I've reviewed have been just average and could be used without Porygon-Z, but now that I've summarized that card, I will explain what I think should be done with this line.  So even though this whole line is a colorless line, I would definitely include the line in a Team Plasma type deck.  Because you can only have 4 special energy cards in a deck, Porygon-Z's Ability will become very useful during battle.  So I would include this line in a Team Plasma Pokemon heavy deck, I would include a 3-2-2 line of Porygon, Porygon-2, and Porygon-Z.  I would make sure one of those Porygon-Z cards is on my bench the whole time so I can utilize its Ability, the other Porygon-Z I would definitely recommend attacking with after having three energy cards on it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  This card is quite similar to the first two Pokemon in this line, just very average, but it is still a great card to use in a deck, especially a Team Plasma one.  I like that this card has a low retreat cost, can do up to 150 damage per turn, and can greatly help your Team Plasma Pokemon in play.  I wish this card's one move would guarantee more damage every turn and that it had a higher hp, but overall it is still average, and so is this entire Pokemon family as a whole, altogether each Pokemon received a 3 rating from me and get one as a whole as well.
