Victreebel -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Victreebel Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Victreebel from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Victreebel is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Victreebel's Ability is called Wafting Scent and says that once per turn, you may discard a grass type energy card attached to Victreebel, if you choose to do this, the defending Pokemon is both confused and poisoned.  Besides the Ability, Victreebel just has one move called Spiral Drain, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, and does 60 damage, plus it heals 30 damage from Victreebel.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Victreebel is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bellsprout into play and then evolve it into Weepinbell before you can evolve Weepinbell into Victreebel, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought Bellsprout was a pretty good Basic Pokemon card because it had two moves, one in which could discard your opponent's cards, and the other doing just 10 damage, and you'll also know that I wasn't a big fan of Weepinbell from this set, so I would rather just use Bellsprout or not use the line at all.  So knowing these things and looking at this Victreebel card, I would definitely recommend using Victreebel in a grass type deck or a deck that inflicts a lot of special conditions.  I would include a 3-2-2 line of this family and try and get Bellsprout into the active Pokemon to start the game and use the strategy I stated in that review, or evolve the entire line on the bench and get at least 4 or 5 energy cards on Victreebel before putting it into the active Pokemon spot.  That way, when you do put Victreebel into the active Pokemon spot you will have no trouble being able to use its Ability and then attack every turn with Spiral Drain.  Once Victreebel is actually set up, it should last quite a long time in the active Pokemon spot because it can heal 30 damage from itself every turn making its HP seem even higher, plus if you confuse the defending Pokemon, they may choose not even to attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  The only thing not that great about this card is its lower HP for a Stage 2 card but Spiral Drain makes up for this by allowing Victreebel to remove 30 damage a turn.  So you really can't go wrong with using this card because both its move and Ability are great, and once you get this card set up this card should dominate for quite a long time.  So overall, I would give this Pokemon family, Bellsprout, Weepinbell, and Victreebel a 4 out of 5 rating, I definitely think this line should be in decks being built.  Individually I gave Bellsprout a 3, Weepinbell a 2, and Victreebell a 5 rating.
