Inkay #75/146 -- 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 second of two consecutive Inkay cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Inkay is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. This Inkay card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Inkay's second move is called Puncture, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 20 damage.

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 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, but I can discuss which Inkay card from this set is better.  So, on its own this card can definitely be used as a starter type Pokemon in a deck.  Try and get this card out into the active Pokemon spot early in the game and use whichever move you have the necessary amount of energy cards for.  Because this card only requires two energy cards maximum to attack, you will easily have time to set up your benched Pokemon while this card is attacking.  Because this card does have a low hp, only 50, I would not put more than two of these in a deck on their own.  Of course, if you are debating on which Inkay card to use in your set from the X and Y set and are not using Malamar, you really have no option but to use this one in your deck.

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.  Other than having a low hp, this card is pretty much average overall and would work well in a darkness type deck.  Both of the moves this card has are average and standard to good starter type Pokemon.  So if you're building a darkness type deck, this card definitely won't do your deck any harm.
