Plusle -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Plusle Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Plusle from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Plusle is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Plusle does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Positive Hand, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to discard an energy card from your hand and draw two cards from your card.  Plusle's second move is called Electric Tail and for two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, the move does 30 damage, plus if you get a heads when flipping a coin, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Plusle 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, this card could definitely be used as a starter type Pokemon in a lightning type deck.  You could use up to 2 of these in a deck, and try and get Plusle into the active Pokemon spot to start, immediately, you can use Positive Hand to try and get some evolution cards into your hand, then after that, if you have the cards you need in your hand, put one more energy card on Plusle and use Electric Tail the rest of the time until you retreat it.  Also, if you paralyze the defending Pokemon with Electric Tail, it will buy more time for you to set up your benched Pokemon.

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 Furious Fists set that should definitely be used as a starter type Pokemon in a lightning type deck.  Not only does it have an above average HP, it has a low retreat cost, and two good moves.  So if you're building a lightning type deck, you definitely can't go wrong with putting one or two of these Plusle cards in it.

EX Dragons is the first set with a Plusle included.
(English or Japanese altogether, I believe it is the very first set with one)
