Delcatty -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Delcatty Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Delcatty from the Pokemon XY Card Set.  Delcatty is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy retreat cost.  Delcatty does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Energy Salon, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for up to 3 different type energy cards and put them into your deck.  Delcatty's second move is called Fake Out and for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage and if you get a heads when you flip a coin, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Delcatty is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Skitty into play (I reviewed Skitty from this set yesterday) and then evolve Skitty into Delcatty.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Skitty was a pretty decent basic Pokemon card because it had two good moves and a low retreat cost.  So Skitty can be used on its own or you can choose to use it with this Delcatty card.  I would use both and use a 2-2 or 2-1 line of this Pokemon family.  I would try to get one Skitty card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, evolve it into Delcatty, use Energy Salon first if you have at least two different energy types in your deck, then use Fake Out after that.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  I like pretty much everything about this card except for its low hp, but both of the moves this card has are average to slightly above average and Delcatty has a low retreat cost which is always nice.  So overall, I would give the line of Skitty and Delcatty from the X and Y set a 3 out of 5 rating, they aren't great, but you could definitely use both of them in a deck.
