Binacle -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Binacle Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Binacle from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Binacle is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Binacle does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Swing Around, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move does 10 damage plus 20 more damage for each heads you get when flipping two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Binacle is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Barbaracle, 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 can't highly recommend using this card in a deck, the main reason being that this card is slow on the attack and has a higher retreat cost.  If you get lucky, and potentially use a Trick Coin trainer with this card, you could do 50 damage a turn for only two energy cards, but because this move is based on coin flips, this card could do below average damage every turn.  I think this card is best used with Barbaracle since it takes time to set up, so again, I cannot recommend using this card on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Barbaracle, this card is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card.  It has a solid HP and a potential to do a fair amount of damage, but overall it is too slow on the attack to use on its own.

False because in the Flashfire card reviews you also did a binacle.
