Mudkip -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Mudkip Primal Clash
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mudkip from the Primal Clash set.  Mudkip is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mudkip does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle, for one water energy card this move does 10 damage.  Mudkip's second move is called Mud-Slap, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of water and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mudkip is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Marshtomp and a stage 2 evolution in Swampert, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, this card is a great starter type Pokemon to use in a water type deck or an even better way to start off this entire Pokemon family.  I would definitely consider putting a couple of these into a water type deck, all on their own.  You can try and get one of them into the active Pokemon spot to start the game and do 10 damage the first turn and 20 damage every turn after that.  Since this card has two moves that both require little energy, this card is both quick, and will do significant damage to other Basic Pokemon with HP below 60.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very solid Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set and one that should be used as a starter type Pokemon in most water type decks.  There isn't one thing that I dislike about this card, it has an average HP, low retreat cost, and two average, but very solid moves, so you can't ask for much better from a card you'll only want to use at the beginning of the game to quickly do damage and give time to set up your benched Pokemon.
