Jellicent -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Jellicent Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Jellicent from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Jellicent is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Jellicent does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Meddling, for one water energy card it allows you to attach three energy cards to your opponent's Pokemon from the discard pile in any way you like.  Jellicent's second move is called Ensnaring Spray, this move requires three energy cards, one water and two colorless, and does 50 damage plus 10 more damage for each energy card attached to all of your opponent's Pokemon in play.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Jellicent is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Frillish into play (I reviewed Frillish from this set yesterday) and then evolve Frillish into Jellicent.  If you read yesterday's review of Frillish, you'll know that I thought that card was very poor, not only could it not do any damage, the its retreat cost was higher than the one move it did have, so you would have to put an additional energy card on Frillish just to retreat it.  So knowing this about Frillish and looking at this Jellicent card, I may consider just using one of these in a deck, making a 1-1 line with Frillish and Jellicent, then setting up Jellicent on the bench and getting three energy cards on it, then if the opponent would ever get 4 or 5 or more energy cards on their Pokemon, I would put Jellicent into the active Pokemon spot and use Ensnaring Spray.  To me, using Meddling is too risky of a move, it is never a good idea to help your opponent out by giving them energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  This card does have a nice HP, and one good move if your opponent ever puts several energy cards on their Pokemon, but this card just carries too much risk for me to want to use it in a deck, I would avoid this Pokemon line if I were building a water type deck.  Together with Frillish, I would only give this line a 2 out of 5 rating at best, it just isn't worth it to use Frillish, which I gave a 1, and Jellicent, which I gave a 2, in a deck.
