Spoink -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Spoink Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spoink from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Spoink is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Spoink does not have an Ability, and it only has the one move.  Its only move is called Flail Around which requires one psychic energy card and does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip three coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spoink is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Grumpig, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll probably want to use this card with Grumpig.  This card could be a pretty good starter Pokemon and could be used on its own if you want.  Because it only requires one energy card this card is very quick and can do 30 damage in one turn which is excellent for a starter Pokemon.   So, strategy wise, if you are using this card on your own I would try and get this card in the active Pokemon spot early in the game, attach one energy card to it and then use Flail Around every turn.  If this card gets into your hand later in the game, I would either keep this card in your hand or keep it on the bench.  Because it only has 50 hp, it won't last long later in games.  So this card could be used on its own, but if you choose to use it on its own I would only use 1 of these in a psychic type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card has below average hp, I'm still giving this card an average rating.  I like how this card is quick, requires little energy, and has a low retreat cost.  However, be aware this card may be able to do 30 damage but at the same time might be able to do 0 damage a few turns in a row.

Lopunny and Glaceon, although only Glaceon learns the move by levelling up. Lopunny needs a heart scale or something like that to learn Mirror Coat.
