Frillish -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Frillish Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Frillish from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Frillish is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Frillish does not have an Ability and only has one move called Confuse Ray, this move requires one water energy card and confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Frillish is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Jellicent, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own I would avoid this card at all costs.  Not only does it not do any damage to the defending Pokemon, if you're just using Frillish, you have to put an additional energy card on Frillish to even retreat it, since its retreat cost is higher than the energy cost required to attack.  So the strategy is short and simple with this card, if you aren't using Jellicent, do not use this card, period.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Jellicent, this card is a pretty poor Basic Pokemon card.  Outside of the fact it has a high HP, this card is extremely limited, unable to do damage to the defending Pokemon, and needs more energy cards to retreat than it does to attack.  So I wholeheartedly recommend not using this card in a deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
