Swirlix -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Swirlix Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swirlix from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Swirlix is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Swirlix does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle, this move does 10 damage for one colorless energy card.  Swirlix's second move is called Fairy Wind and for two energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Swirlix is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Slurpuff, 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 if you want a starter type Pokemon in your fairy type deck, I would definitely include 4 of these in your deck.  Not only does this card have an average hp and low retreat cost, but it has two quick moves that do a good amount of damage.  So if you're hoping to start the game with a solid Pokemon, make sure to stack your deck with an abundance of this Swirlix card.  Of course, when this Pokemon is in the active Pokemon spot, use whichever move you have the necessary energy for.

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 and a card that would make a perfect starter type Pokemon in a fairy type deck.  I pretty much like everything about this card, from its hp, down to its retreat cost, so if you need a very good starter Pokemon in your deck, look no further than Swirlix from the X and Y set.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
