Spoink -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Spoink Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spoink from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Spoink is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Spoink does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Rocket Jump.  This move does 30 damage for one psychic energy card if you get a heads when flipping a coin, otherwise it does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Spoink is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Grumpig, 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, unless you're using 4 Trick Coin trainer cards in your deck, I cannot recommend using this card.  The main reason being that this card may do zero damage every single turn, and since the card just has one move you have no other option but to attack using Rocket Jump every turn.  This card would be much less risky if used with Grumpig since you could evolve Spoink right away, at most using this card only one turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Grumpig, this card is slightly below average.  Just looking at the numbers on this card, it is solid overall, with an average HP, low retreat cost, quick move, and the ability to do a fair amount of damage, but because this card just has one move and that move is based off of a coin flip, this card gets a below average rating from me.
