Froslass (Plasma Blast) 

Hello and welcome to another golf-affected week on Pojo’s CotD. We still have three reviews for you this week though, and we kick off with one of the oddest-looking Pokémon of them all – Froslass. 

You can see what they were trying to do with this card: create a kind of lock with the Cursed Glare Ability and then spread-damage the opponent to defeat with Blizzard. It’s nice to have this kind of synergy on a card, but is it really a viable strategy? 

Cursed Glare prevents the opponent from attaching Special Energy from the hand when Froslass is active. This is only really going to be effective against those Plasma decks that run Special Energy almost exclusively – a combination of Enhanced Hammer and active Froslass is a pretty tight Energy denial lock, stopping the opponent from attacking and allowing Froslass to take her own sweet time with KOs. Unfortunately, this strategy does little or nothing against the other top decks of the moment (Blastoise, Darkrai, and Genesect). Even Plasma has options against Froslass: it can play around it with Pokémon Catcher, or it can use Hypnotoxic Laser/Virbank City Gym which will KO Froslass in a mere three turns, thanks to its low 90 HP. 

It’s a nice concept, and Froslass is a very appealing, well-designed card. I just don’t see it being more than an inconvenience to one particular deck right now . . . and that isn’t enough. 


Modified: 2.25 (I’ll just have to hope it can become good some day)

Limited: 3 (the cheap spread is nice, but the Ability won’t often apply)
