Nincada -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Nincada Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Nincada from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Nincada is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Nincada does not have an Ability or Ancient Trait and it only has one move.  This move is called Slight Intrusion, for one colorless energy card it does 20 damage, however it does do 10 damage to itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Nincada is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Ninjask and Shedinja, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with one of those Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without one of its Stage 1 forms.  So, on its own, I would stay away from this card at all costs, not only does it have an extremely low HP that can easily be knocked out in one move later in the game, but if you try attacking with Nincada, it will make it that much easier for it to get knocked out.  So unless you just want to let your opponent take one of their prize cards with little effort at all, do not use this card on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Ninjask or Shedinja, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  The only thing I like about this card is that it can do 20 damage a turn, but there are just too many negatives to overcome with this card including its extremely low HP and the fact when you attack Nincada does damage to itself.  So if you're building a grass type deck, make sure to look elsewhere for Grass type Pokemon.
