Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ursaring from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set. Ursaring is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Ursaring does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Adrenalash, for three colorless energy cards, this move does 50 damage, however the turn after using Adrenalash, each of Ursaring's attacks does 50 more damage. Ursaring's second move is called Strength, this move requires four colorless energy cards and does 80 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ursaring is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Teddiursa into play (I reviewed Teddiursa from this set yesterday) and then evolve Teddiursa into Ursaring. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Teddiursa was a slightly below average basic Pokemon card that probably shouldn't be used on its own. Because this card shouldn't be used on its own and the fact that Ursaring requires a lot of energy cards to attack, I would set this line up on the bench. I would get at least three energy cards on Ursaring before moving it to the active Pokemon spot, that way when I would move Ursaring into that spot, I would use Adrenalash the first turn, and Strength the next turn, of course adding another energy card. That way you could do 180 damage in two turns. However, if the defending Pokemon would be knocked out by 80 damage definitely use Strength right away, you do not have to alternate between the two moves. I would definitely consider using this Pokemon family in any type deck I was building. These two Pokemon, especially Ursaring can really pack a punch, because of this I would include a 2-2 or 2-1 line of Teddiursa nad Ursaring in my deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set. I would definitely recommend using this card in decks where you're looking for some power from your Pokemon. I really like how Ursaring's two moves were in tandem doing an amazing 180 every two turns. This card can fit into any deck and can do some major damage, just make sure to give this Pokemon some time to set up and you will be golden. Overall, I would give the line of Teddiursa and Ursaring from the Plasma Blast set a 4 out of 5 rating, together the cards are pretty great, individually, Teddiursa was a 2, Ursaring a 4.
