Blissey -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Blissey Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Blissey from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Blissey is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Blissey does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tender Vengeance, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 10 damage times the number of damage counters on each of your benched Pokemon.  Blissey's second move is called Charge Dash, this move requires four colorless energy cards and does 60 damage plus 20 more damage if you choose to do 20 damage to Blissey.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Blissey is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Chansey into play (I reviewed Chansey from this set yesterday) and then evolve Chansey into Blissey.  If you read yesterday's review of Chansey, you'll know that I thought that card was a very poor Basic Pokemon card, the main two reasons being it was very slow on the attack and the only move that could do damage on the card, may not be able to do damage at all if you don't have 7 cards in your hand.  So knowing this about Chansey and looking at this Blissey card, I would possibly include a 1-1 line of Chansey and Blissey in a deck if the deck had a lot of Pokemon that had low retreat costs or free retreat costs, that way, I could set up Blissey on the bench, get three energy cards on it, then use most of my other Pokemon first in the active Pokemon spot, retreat them for free when they are almost knocked out, then put Blissey into the active Pokemon spot and use Tender Vengeance every turn.  That would be the only scenario where I would use this line in a deck otherwise I would avoid it altogether.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  This card does have a high HP, and two decent moves that can potentially do major damage, but this card, just like Chansey is extremely slow, and both moves are below average if one you don't have a lot of damage on your benched Pokemon, or two don't want to do damage to Blissey.  So together with Chansey from this set, which I gave a 1 rating, I can only give these two cards a 2 out of 5 rating, I would avoid them almost always when building a deck.
