Diglett -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Diglett from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Diglett is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Diglett does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Mine, for one fighting energy card this move allows you to look at the top card of your opponent's deck and make your opponent shuffle their deck if you want.  Diglett's second move is called Mud-Slap, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Diglett is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Dugtrio, 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 this card probably shouldn't be used because it has a low hp and cannot do damage for only one energy card.  However, if you're in a pinch, I could definitely see putting one of these cards into a fighting type deck.  When in the active Pokemon spot you'll want to use whichever move you can.  Mine actually may do a fair amount of "damage" to your opponent if they have a card they really want on the top of their deck and you make them shuffle it into their deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Although this card does have two moves and a low retreat cost, this card isn't average because of its low hp and the fact that neither of Diglett's two moves are anything above average.  Definitely look elsewhere first before trying to put this basic Pokemon card into your deck.

In the Unlimited Base Set there were some Diglett cards that were misprinted with the fist symbol for the "Dig" attack turned 90 degrees counter-clockwise. Even though Diglett is still a common pokemon, that error does make those prints some pretty uncommon cards! Just an observation...
