Drifloon -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Drifloon Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Drifloon from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Drifloon is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Drifloon does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Transfer Pain, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to move one damage counter from one of your own Pokemon to one of your opponent's.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Drifloon is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Drifblim, 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 recommend using this card if you're building a spread attack type deck, a deck where your opponent Pokemon deal damage to your benched Pokemon, or a deck that will be retreating Pokemon in and out a lot.  If any of these scenarios are true, this card deserves consideration for use, the one caveat being that with only 60 HP, this card won't last too long.  But, because this card requires only one colorless energy card to attack, it can fit in any type deck out there, it just isn't a good starter type Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Drifblim, this is an average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, this card is a solid Basic Pokemon card for certain types of decks, it won't work as a starter type Pokemon, but will work later in games.  So, this card definitely deserves at least a look when deck building.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Just wanted to add that started watching your videos roughly a year ago and I got my first deck and learnt the rules of the TCG today. After 15 years of playing Pokemon games really cool to have a few of my base set cards left from when I was about 6 and now new cards with the same artwork, thanks for inspiring me I really enjoy your vids!
