Sandile -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Sandile Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sandile from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Sandile is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sandile does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Ram, this move does 20 damage for two colorless energy cards.  Sandile's second move is called Darkness Fang, this move requires three energy cards, two darkness and one colorless, and does 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sandile is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Krokorok and a stage 2 evolution in Krookodile, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, even though this card has two moves that do plenty of damage, I would not use this card in a deck.  The main reason for saying this is that Sandile is too slow for my liking and it has too high of a retreat cost.  If you do choose to use this card in your deck, definitely don't use more than one, and use whatever move you have the energy cost for when attacking.  Because this card is so slow, it would be better to set this card up on your bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly below average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  This card can do a lot of damage and has a high hp, but it is too slow requiring two and three energy cards to attack plus its retreat cost is extremely high.  So if you're looking for a basic Pokemon card to use in your darkness type deck, this one is worthy of a look but I'd probably look elsewhere first.
