Yveltal -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Yveltal Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Yveltal from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Yveltal is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Yveltal does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Oblivion Wing, this move requires one darkness energy card and does 30 damage.  Besides doing the 30 damage, this move also allows you to move a discarded darkness energy card to one of your benched Pokemon.  Yveltal's second move is called Darkness Blade, this move requires three energy cards, two darkness and one colorless, and does 100 damage.  However, when using this move, you must flip a coin, if you get a tails you can't attack during your next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Yveltal is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, I definitely wouldn't base a deck around Yveltal alone because if you're aren't extremely lucky, this card isn't going to average more than 50 damage a turn, but this card could definitely be used in a deck but I wouldn't use more than 2.  You could try and use this card as a starter type Pokemon and use Oblivion Wing many times while setting up your benched Pokemon or you could set Yveltal up on the bench, put three energy cards on it and later in the game when you have plenty of energy cards in your discard pile you could move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Oblivion Wing to get those energy cards back, or you could use Darkness Blade to try and knock out your opponent's active Pokemon in one move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  The thing I like most about this card is its high hp but couple that with the fact it can do 30 damage from the get go with only one energy cards and this card is definitely going to be a staple in almost all darkness type decks out there.  Darkness Blade is a great move if you only plan on using it once and then retreating, but make sure to know that you may end up only being able to use that move once every other turn and averaging 50 damage a turn.  Overall this is a great card that should definitely be in plenty of decks.

I believe that you prefer Xerneas over Yveltal based on your comments in the Resilient Life and Destruction Rush Theme Deck opening videos.
