Zoroark -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Zoroark Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zoroark from the Pokemon XY Card Set.  Zoroark is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy retreat cost.  Zoroark does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Corner, this move requires one darkness energy card and does 30 damage, plus it makes your opponent's active Pokemon unable to retreat during their next turn.  Zoroark's next move is called Night Claw, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness and does 100 damage, however if you get a tails when flipping a coin you must discard two energy cards attached to Zoroark.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zoroark is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Zorua into play (I reviewed Zorua from this set yesterday) and then evolve Zorua into Zoroark.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Zorua was a below average basic Pokemon card from this set.  Because Zorua is below average, if you use this card in your deck, I would set it up on the bench.  Also, because Night Claw is the main move you'll want to use with this card, I would only include one of these in a deck and put several energy cards on it, up to 5.  That way, even if you flip a tails the first turn using Night Claw, you would be able to use that move right away the next turn.  Of course if you don't have enough energy cards on Zoroark to use Night Claw you'll have to use Corner.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  I like that this card has an above average hp, low retreat cost, and two good moves.  This card can be pretty dominant if you give it some time and strike some luck.  Overall, I would give the line of Zorua and Zoroark from the X and Y set a 3 out of 5 rating, together they are average, individually Zorua was below average and Zoroark was above average.
