Diancie -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Diancie Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Diancie from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Diancie is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 90, it has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Diancie does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move that this card has is called Sparkle, for one fairy type energy card this move makes your opponent flip a coin before attacking next turn, if they get a tails, all effects of that attack are prevented.  Diancie's second move is called Diamond Storm, this move requires three energy cards to use, two fairy and one colorless, and does 60 damage, plus it heals 30 damage from each of your fairy type Pokemon in play.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Diancie 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, I would highly recommend using this card in a deck only if your deck is mostly a fairy type deck.  The strategy then would be to get Diancie set up on the bench, getting three energy cards on it, then use your other fairy type Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot first, get some damage on all of them, but retreat them before they feint, then move Diancie into the active Pokemon spot and use Diamond Storm every turn thus healing 30 damage from each of your fairy type Pokemon on the bench and doing 60 damage to the defending Pokemon.  If you do get this card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, I would hope for the opponent to have some bad luck and get tails every time when flipping a coin, and use Sparkle every turn to try and prevent your opponent from attacking and to give you time to set up your benched Pokemon.

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 Phantom Forces set, and a slightly above average Basic Pokemon card if you're using this card in a majority fairy type deck.  This card has a good HP and low retreat cost, and two average moves, unless you have mostly fairy type cards in your deck, than Diamond Storm is a well above average move.  So like I stated in the strategy section of this post, this card will be very good in a fairy type deck and every fairy type deck out there should include this card in their deck.
