Inkay -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Inkay Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Inkay from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Inkay is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Inkay does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Ink Spit, for one darkness energy card this move does 10 damage, plus if you opponent tries to attack Inkay during their next turn, they must flip a coin, if they get a tails, the attack does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Inkay is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Malamar, 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 really isn't worth using in a deck because it has a below average HP and can only do 10 damage maximum.  I do like that after using Ink Spit the opponent is forced to flip a coin before attacking, but this move would be better suited for a more powerful Pokemon, one that can be used later in the game.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Malamar, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I would definitely not recommend using this card in a deck, with its low HP, but I do like the one move that this card has, doing damage and possibly preventing your opponent from attacking.  This card wouldn't be the worst card in the world to have in the active Pokemon spot for a turn before evolving it into Malamar.

So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Inkay from the Ancient Origins set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Inkay's stage 1 evolution Malamar, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Inkay evolves into Malamar at Level 30 when the Nintendo 3DS is held upside down. This is because Malamar is basically Inkay upside down, only bigger.
