Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Parasect from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set. Parasect is a Stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with a HP of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Parasect does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that Parasect has is called Fury Cutter, which for two colorless energy cards does 10 damage plus 20, 60, or 120 more damage depending on if you get 1, 2, or 3 heads when flipping 3 coins. Parasect's second move is called Mushroom Drain, for three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, this move does 70 damage, plus it heals 30 damage from Parasect.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Parasect is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Paras into play (I reviewed Paras from this set yesterday) and then evolve Paras into Parasect. If you read yesterday's review of Paras, you'll know that I thought that card was average overall, it had a solid HP of 60, a low retreat cost, and a fairly powerful move. The only real downside to the card was that it required two energy cards instead of one to attack, and that it was limited in only having one move. So knowing this about Paras and looking at this Parasect card, if you're building a grass type deck and are in need of a grass type line that does a fair amount of damage, I would recommend Paras and Parasect. Ideally, you would use a Trick Coin trainer and attach it to Parasect to give you a better chance at doing 140 damage per turn with Fury Cutter while having only 1 Double Colorless energy card or two Basic energy cards on Parasect and then after that always using Mushroom Drain. Parasect already has an above average HP, so healing 30 more damage from Parasect when using Mushroom Drain makes this card even better HP wise. So again, if building a grass type deck, I could definitely see using at least 1-1 line of this Pokemon family.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set. This card is the type of card I like using in my decks, something that is straight-forward strategy wise and is purely an attacker. Although you need some luck with Parasect to do major damage, 70 damage a turn for 3 energy cards is still solid and is worth using. Overall, I would give the line of Paras and Parasect from the Sun and Moon set a 4 out of 5 rating, I think the two are solid overall, both able to do a good amount of damage and both useful in decks.
