Skuntank -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Skuntank Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skuntank from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Skuntank 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 two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Skuntank does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Push Down, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus it makes your opponent switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Skuntank's second move is called Acid Spray, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 70 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin your opponent must discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skuntank is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Stunky into play and then evolve Stunky into Skuntank.  There are actually two Stunky cards in this set and I've reviewed them the past two days, I prefer the the first Stunky card from this set, card #53/106 because both of the moves that card is better than the moves on the second Stunky card from this set.  No matter which Stunky card you choose to use, I would probably keep it on the bench to evolve it into Skuntank, I say this because Skuntank is fairly slow on the attack, if you keep it on the bench and put three energy cards on it, when Skuntank is moved to the active Pokemon spot it can use either move it has right away.  I would use a 1-1 line of Stunky and Skuntank if I were building either a darkness type deck or a spread damage type deck.  If I were building a spread damage type deck, I would use Push Down more often that Acid Spray, but any time the defending Pokemon would be knocked out by 70 damage or less, I would make sure to use Acid Spray.

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 Flashfire set.  This card isn't the flashiest card out there, but I like that it has an above average hp, and two very good moves.  I like how this card has a very powerful move in Acid Spray and a move that allows it to be used in spread damage type decks.  Overall, I would give the line of Stunky and Skuntank from the Flashfire set a 3 out of 5 rating, it is an average line that may be included in decks if you're lacking other cards.  Individually, I gave the Stunky cards from this set a 3 and a 2 rating and this Skuntank card a 4 rating.
