Vulpix -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Vulpix Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vulpix from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Vulpix is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Vulpix does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Roar, this move requires one colorless energy card to use and makes your opponent switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Vulpix's second move is called Gnaw, this move requires one fire energy card to use and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vulpix is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Ninetales, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, this card could be used, if you need a starter type Pokemon in a fire type deck, or if you are using a spread damage type deck, and one of your Pokemon does damage to those Pokemon that already have damage on them, in this case, I would get Vulpix into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, do Gnaw one turn, then Roar the next to hopefully spread damage onto several of the opponent's Pokemon, the only downfall of this strategy is that the opponent gets to decide the Pokemon they put into the active Pokemon spot.  Like I said, this card could also be used as a starter type Pokemon since it can do 10 damage for one energy card, but I would probably hold back on doing so just because this card is quite limited in what it can do.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Ninetales, this card is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  Even though I wouldn't highly recommend using this card in a deck, outside of the fact it can only do 10 damage a turn, this card does have a low retreat cost, average HP, and two moves, both moves being at least average.  So if you're building a deck and need a Basic Pokemon card to use in it, this card is at least worth a look.

Even this is not the best one, I use it as starter many times to burn the opponent (DEX). In this case 3 out of 5 is quite good for this basic. Sorry for the chatter, I love Vulpix.

Answering: The only uncommon Vulpix in the English sets is Brock's Vulpix released in the Generation I: Gym Series, included in the GYM CHALLENGE SET.

If you consider a special Vulpix then, the first set to include an uncommon Vulpix card was the Gym Challenge set. (Brock's Vulpix)
If you do not consider a special Vulpix and consider only a regular Vulpix, then there is no set having an uncommon Vulpix card.
