Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cinccino from the Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Set. Cinccino is a a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, that has an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Cinccino doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Captivate which takes one colorless energy card and allows you to switch one of your opponent's benched Pokemon with their active Pokemon. Cinccino's second move is called Fluffy Tail and for two colorless energy cards it does 30 damage and puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll want to get this card into the active Pokemon spot pretty early in the game, once you get it into the active Pokemon spot you first want to use Captivate and switch your opponent's active Pokemon with one of their weaker benched Pokemon, the next turn you'll want to use Fluffy Tail and put the defending Pokemon to sleep, you can then hope that your opponent's Pokemon doesn't wake up so it can't retreat or attack and then use Fluffy Tail again every turn putting it back to sleep even if it does wake up, so turn after turn you'll be putting your opponent's Pokemon to sleep, and since Fluffy Tail only requires two energy cards, you should have plenty of time to set up your benched Pokemon so you can move more powerful Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot and start attacking right away with them later in the game, after you've been able to put energy cards on them, while your opponent's Pokemon are put to sleep with Cinccino. Since Cinccino is a colorless type Pokemon, I would suggest putting a 2-1 line of Minccino and Cinccino in almost any deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. Even though this card cannot do much for damage, I still think this card is very good. It has a low retreat cost, average hp, and two good moves that work very well together and can help you set up your other Pokemon on the bench which will make you that much better later in the game. So like I said earlier, I would recommend having at least one Cinccino card in any deck you might make.
