Stunky #53/106 -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Stunky Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stunky from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  There are actually two different Stunky cards in this set, and I'll be reviewing both in the next two days.  Stunky is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Stunky card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Smokescreen, for one darkness energy card this move allows you to flip a coin during your opponent's next turn if they try and attack, if they get a tails, their move does nothing.  Stunky's second move is called Slash, for two colorless energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Stunky is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Skuntank, which I'll be reviewing in two days since there are two Stunky cards in this set, you'll more than likely want to use one of these Stunky cards with Skuntank.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet or even the other Stunky card, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution or knowing which Stunky card is better.  So, on its own I probably wouldn't use this card in a deck.  I say this because neither of the moves this card has are that amazing and even though Slash is the move I would use most turns, it does require two energy cards and Smokescreen is a coin based move and one that probably won't do that much anyway even if you make your opponent flip a tails.  Because if you were to use this card in a deck, you wouldn't use more than 1 and you would want to use it as a starter type Pokemon getting it into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, then you could use Smokescreen the first turn and Slash after that, so even if your opponent couldn't attack their first turn, Smokescreen is really only stopping about 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  Even though I wouldn't use this card in a deck, I am giving this card an average rating because it has a good hp, low retreat cost, and two moves, neither of which are terrible.  So if you're looking to build a darkness type deck, you can definitely consider this card but I would look hard elsewhere first.
