Skitty -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Skitty Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skitty from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Skitty is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Skitty does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Charm, for one colorless energy card this move reduces any damage done from your opponent's active Pokemon during their next turn by 20.  Skitty's second move is called Tail Smack, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skitty is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Delcatty, 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, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason being it only has 50 HP, which is pretty low, plus it requires two energy cards to actually do some damage.  If you're looking for a colorless Pokemon card to use for your deck, the card I just reviewed two days ago, Zigzagoon, is similar to this card but has a higher HP.  If you do decide to use this card in a deck, make sure to not use more than 1, and get it into the active Pokemon spot early in the game.  If you get this card out early, 50 HP won't seem so low and you may be able to use this card a couple of turns before having to retreat it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Delcatty, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card is similar to Zigzagoon from this set which I also gave a 2 out of 5 rating, however, this card is poorer than that one.  I am not a fan of Skitty's low HP, and neither of its moves.  So if you're building a deck and looking for some colorless Pokemon to use, I would recommend looking elsewhere in regards to this Skitty card.
