Carbink -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Carbink Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Carbink from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Carbink is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Carbink does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Crystal Barrier, for one fairy type energy card if you get a heads when you flip a coin all effects of an attack from your opponent during their next turn are prevented.  Carbink's second move is called Wonder Blast, this move requires three colorless energy card and does 20 damage for each fairy type energy card attached to this Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Carbink is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, you could definitely use at least one of these Carbink cards in a fairy type deck as a starter type Pokemon because you can put it into play immediately and use Crystal Barrier, thus giving you time to set up Wonder Blast and do 100 damage a turn.  With 70 hp, you should be fine early on in the game if you don't get a heads when trying to use Crystal Barrier but later in the game, unless Carbink is already set up, this card won't be that great because 70 hp on a card that late in a game just isn't that good.  So you can definitely take a chance on this card and use it in a deck, early on in the game it will be good, but as the game goes on this card will get worse.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  This card has an above average hp, and one good move out of two moves.  If you plan on using this card as a starter type Pokemon, it will be a little slower than most, but will pack much more power by being able to do 100 damage a turn if you're using solely fairy type energy cards with it.  Overall, this card is definitely worth being used in a deck.
