Pumpkaboo -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Pumpkaboo Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pumpkaboo from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Pumpkaboo is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Pumpkaboo does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Confuse Ray, this move confuses the defending Pokemon for one psychic energy card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pumpkaboo is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Gourgeist, 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 I would not use this card in a deck because it only has one move and the only move it has cannot do any damage, it only inflicts a special condition.  So if you want to use this card in a deck, make sure to use not more than one and use Confuse Ray whenever the card is in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very bad basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Even though confusing the defending Pokemon is a good thing and a basic Pokemon card with an hp of 60 and an attack that requires only one energy card I am still giving this card a very low rating because Confuse Ray may not effect your opponent's Pokemon at all, and if you put this card into the active Pokemon spot, use Confuse Ray, and want to retreat Pumpkaboo, you'll have to add an additional energy card to it.  So my advice with this card would be to stay away from it unless you really want to use Gourgeist in your deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:

Pumpkaboo evolves into Gourgeist when it is traded... I would describe it as a process involving pulsating lights and sparkly substances, possibly generated from the internal anxiety of having a new owner!
