Venipede -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Venipede Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Venipede from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Venipede is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Venipede does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Poison Sting.  This move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic, and does 20 damage plus poisons the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Venipede is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Whirlipede and a stage 2 evolution in Scolipede, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, this card should only be used in a deck if you need one more card to make 60 cards in your deck.  This card can definitely help you early on in the game because it has an average move plus it automatically confuses the defending Pokemon which will allow you to set up your bench when the defending Pokemon is confused but with a high retreat cost and only one move, this card isn't that great.  So if you have this card in your deck, you'll want to use Poison Sting every turn since that is the only option with this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average card from the X and Y set.  Even though this card has an outrageous retreat cost, I am still giving this card an average rating because it has a high hp and one very good move.  Again, this card is just average overall, so it could be used in a deck on its own but there are definitely better psychic type cards out there that you could use instead.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
