Whirlipede -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Whirlipede Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Whirlipede from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Whirlipede is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Whirlipede does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Continuous Tumble, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin until you get tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Whirlipede is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Venipede into play (I reviewed Venipede from this set yesterday) and then evolve Venipede into Whirlipede.  Whirlipede does have a stage 2 evolution in Scolipede that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Whirlipede is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review of Venipede, you'll know that I thought the card was pretty average and it could be used on its own since it has one really good move and a high hp but you just need to watch out for its huge retreat cost.  Because Venipede and Whirlipede both have high retreat costs and the only move Whirlipede has may end up never doing any damage, I would highly recommend not using Whirlipede if not using Scolipede.  So either just use 1 or less Venipede in your deck or have this whole Pokemon family.  The only thing you can really do with this Whirlipede card if you have it in your deck is to hope for some luck and use Continuous Tumble every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is easily one of the worst stage 1 Pokemon cards from the X and Y set.  Even though this card  has 90 damage, it is still a terrible card because the retreat cost is higher than the amount of energy cards required to use its only move and the only move it does have may end up doing zero damage every single turn.  So I would stay away from this card at all costs and because of this I would give the Pokemon family so far of Venipede and Whirlipede a 1 out of 5 rating.  Both cards are not worth using together even though I gave Venipede a 3, this Whirlipede is that bad of a card.
