Minccino -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Minccino Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Minccino from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Minccino is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Minccino does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Pound and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Minccino's second move is called Reckless Charge and for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage, however this move also does 10 damage to Minccino.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mincinno is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Cinccino, I would recommend keeping Minccino on your bench and evolving it into Cinccino(there is not a Cinccino card in this set, but there are 3 in the Black and White sets previously, and I've reviewed them on my blog already) before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  If you have to put Minccino into the active Pokemon spot, it actually isn't a bad starter Pokemon.  You can use Pound right away for only one energy card and then if you attach another energy card to it the next turn you can use Reckless Charge and do 30 damage per turn.  I would recommend using Reckless Charge over Pound, but make sure to not use it too much especially if you don't plan on evolving Mincinno into Cinccino quite soon, otherwise you may end up knocking Minccino out since it only has 60 hp.  I wouldn't use Minccino on its own in a deck unless I was desperate to fill an empty spot in a deck, since this card is a colorless type card it can fit into any deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a pretty solid basic Pokemon card.  I like that it has average hp, a low retreat cost, and two decent moves, plus it is colorless so you can put it into any deck.  There isn't anything really special about this card so there are much better alternatives, but you can't go too wrong by using this card in a deck.
