Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weezing from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set. Weezing is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Weezing does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Balloon Bomb, for two colorless energy cards this move allows you to discard the top 2 cards from your opponent's deck for each heads you get when you flip 2 coins. Weezing second move is called Thick Liquid and for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, this move does 80 damage, however the move does confuse and poison both active Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Weezing is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Koffing into play (I reviewed Koffing from this set yesterday) and then evolve Koffing into Weezing. If you read yesterday's review of Koffing, you'll know that I thought it was a very poor Basic Pokemon card, mainly because it couldn't do any damage when attacking and the only move it did have just allowed you to put more Koffing cards into play. So knowing this about Koffing and looking at this Weezing card, unless you're specifically trying to beat your opponent by making them use all of the cards in their deck, I would avoid this line entirely. Weezing is slow on the attack and has a high retreat cost so it doesn't make sense to use more than 1 in a deck, therefore making Koffing that much worse. Thick Liquid does do above average damage, but you will need to include Trainer cards in your deck or have Pokemon with Abilities to heal Weezing all of the time if you want to use that move at all. So again, I would recommend staying away from this line entirely.
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 Fates Collide set. Even though this card has plenty of positives, like a high HP, and two moves, this card just isn't that good overall with a very high retreat cost, two slower moves, and just lots of additional cards needed for this card to be useful. Together with Koffing from this set, I can only give this line a 1 out of 5 rating, it is very poor and not recommended to use.
