Cottonee -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Cottonee Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cottonee from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Cottonee is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 40.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Cottonee does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Cotton Bed and for one fairy type energy card, it does 10 damage plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cottonee is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Whimsicott, 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, mainly because it has such a low HP, and if you get it into the active Pokemon spot any other time than to start the game, the card is going to get knocked out in one move.  The one thing that I like about this card is that it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep, so potentially, if you don't mind the low HP, you could use this card as a starter Pokemon and put it in the active Pokemon spot to start the game, put the defending Pokemon to sleep, and then work on setting up your bench.  But, like I said, if you want to use this card in a deck, don't use more than 1 because it has such a low HP.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Whimsicott, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card is similar to cards that I usually give a 1 out of 5 rating, but because the one move Cottonee has does inflict a special condition and do damage, I am bumping this card up a point.  But overall, this card definitely isn't a card that has to be in decks, you can definitely do better.

It evolves when you place the Whimsicott card on a Cottonee card after waiting one turn, using Wally, evosoda, or rare candy
