Inkay -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Inkay BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Inkay from the BREAKthrough 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 Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Disorderly Flip and for two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, this move does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Inkay is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Malamar, which was most recently in the Ancient Origins set, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since there isn't a Malamar card in this set, I will only be looking at this Inkay card on its own.  So, on its own, the only way I would even consider using this card in a deck would be if I was using Trick Coin trainer cards, that way, you could attach that trainer to Inkay and hopefully do at least 20 damage a turn with Disorderly Flip.  Outside of using that trainer, I wouldn't use this card in a deck because Inkay has too low of HP, and could end up doing no damage at all every single turn since its only move is based on a coin flip.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Malamar, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  I do like that this card has the potential to do up to 40 damage per turn, but the possibility of ever doing this is pretty low, add in that this card is slow on the attack and has a low HP, and I cannot recommend using this card in a deck.

Inkay evolves into Malamar from level 30 onwards whilst the 3DS is turned upside down. The recommended way is to use a Rare Candy whilst doing this.

Hey PTP! Inkay evolves at level 30 if your DS is upside down, however when I leveled my first Inkay I held my DS upside down the entire fight just incase.
