Inkay #74/146 -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Inkay Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Inkay from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Inkay cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Inkay is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Inkay's Ability is called Upside-Down Evolution and says that if Inkay is confused you may search your deck for a Malamar card and evolve Inkay into Malamar.  Besides the Ability, this Inkay card just has one move called Confusion Wave, this move requires one darkness energy card and confuses both Inkay and the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Inkay is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Malamar, which I'll be reviewing in two days since there are two Inkay in this set, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet and I haven't even reviewed the second Inkay card from this set, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution or knowing which Inkay card is better.  So, on its own I would definitely not use this card because it really can't do anything at all without Malamar.  Sure, you can confuse the defending Pokemon and yourself, but you can't use Upside-Down Evolution without a Malamar in the deck.  So it is a mute point trying to use this Inkay card without Malamar in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 0 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this card cannot be rated based on using it by itself because you really can't use it successfully and if you do choose to use the card it is pretty much worthless.  So please wait until I review the two Malamar cards from this set to know if this card should be used or not.

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

When leveling to 30, you have to hold the 3DS upside down to evolve to malamar.

You must first turn your 3ds upside down, go into a battle and make inkay turn level 30 (the level which it evolves) and then end the battle to make it evolve.

Turn your 3DS upside down the when your inkay is about to turn level 30. When it turns level 30 it will evolve after the battle.
