Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Delcatty from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Delcatty is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Delcatty does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move this card has is called Gather Energy, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 30 damage plus allows you to search your deck for an energy card and attach it to one of your Pokemon. Delcatty's second move is called Double Slap, this move requires two colorless energy card and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 2 coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Delcatty is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Skitty into play (I reviewed Skitty from this set yesterday) and then evolve Skitty into Delcatty. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Skitty was a pretty solid basic Pokemon card that can be used on its own in a deck. With that being said, this entire Pokemon family should be used in many decks out there. I would recommend using a 2-2 or 2-1 line of Skitty and Delcatty in almost any type deck. The earlier you get Delcatty into the active Pokemon spot, the better the game will go for you. I would try and get Delcatty into the active Pokemon spot a turn or two into the game, then use Gather Energy several times in a row. Not only should this move knock out most basic Pokemon in two turns, but it will also allow you get energy cards on your benched Pokemon at double the rate you normally would, because you can attach an energy card from your hand to one of your benched Pokemon every turn and when you use Gather Energy you can attach an additional energy card to whichever Pokemon you would like after getting an energy card from your deck. I would actually stick to using Gather Energy on this card instead of Double Slap, so if you don't have two energy cards on Skitty when you evolve it into Delcatty I would not attach any more energy cards so you'll only have to use one energy card with this line.
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. Everything about this card is pretty good, it has an average hp, low retreat cost, one average move, and one great move. I like how Delcatty's Gather Energy card can really speed up your setup process and allow you to do major damage early in the game. I would definitely recommend using this Pokemon family in your deck, this line is colorless so it can be used in all decks, and overall I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating.
