Spoink -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Spoink Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spoink from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Spoink is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  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 one move called Splash.  This move requires one psychic energy card and does 10 damage.

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 more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own even though this card is average, I wouldn't use this card in a deck.  I say this because it is quite limited on what it can do, this Spoink card could be used in a pinch since it can attack very quickly and has an average hp, but I would rather include other basic Pokemon that have better moves or to make sure to include Grumpig with this card.  Of course, if you use this card in your deck, your only option when in the active Pokemon spot will be to use Splash when it's your turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set. Again, I wouldn't use this card in a deck on its own, but it is an average card because it has an average hp, low retreat cost, and one solid move.  This card is just too limited for me to want to use in a deck without Grumpig.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Spoink from the X and Y set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Spoink's stage 1 evolution in Grumpig, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

There is only one. Spoink and grumpig are the only stage one psychic pokemon family because technically ekans family is poison, and the phantump and pumpkaboo families are both grass and ghost.

Seriously, I don't get it, WHY IS IT A PHYSIC TYPE POKEMON AND IT HAS SPLASH?! Isn't splash supposed to be a water type move?
