Wobbuffet -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Wobbuffet Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wobbuffet from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Wobbuffet is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 110, it has a x2 weakness to psyhic type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Wobbuffet's Ability is called Bide Barricade, and says that if Wobbuffet is in the active Pokemon spot, only psychic type Pokemon can use their abilities.  Besides the Ability, Wobbuffet only has one move called Psychic Assault, this move requires two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 10 damage, plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wobbuffet 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, if you are using a mainly psychic deck and depend on Abilities quite a bit, Wobbuffet is a great card to use, because it lets you keep using your own Abilities but makes your opponent unable to use theirs.  Also, this Wobbuffet card would work in a spread damage type deck since Psychic Assault does more damage if the defending Pokemon already has damage on it.  So you could spread damage around, then move Wobbuffet to the active Pokemon spot and easily do 30 or more damage every single turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very good Basic Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  I like Wobbuffet's Ability quite a bit, it gives you a lot of flexibility strategy wise and could ruin your opponent's own strategy.  Also, this card can do a good amount of damage in a spread damage type deck.  So overall, this card doesn't jump out to me as being that dominant, it is just a good card to use in many different decks out there, thus deserving an above average rating.
