Carbink 49/124 -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Carbink Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Carbink from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  There are actually two Carbink cards in this set and I'll be reviewing the other tomorrow, plus there is a Carbink BREAK.  This Carbink card is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 80, it has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Carbink has an Ability called Energy Keeper that says Basic energy cards attached to your Basic Pokemon cannot be discarded by your opponent's attacks, abilities, or trainers. Besides the Ability, Carbink has one move called Stone Edge, for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, this move does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Carbink is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, other than Carbink BREAK, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card, but I would wait until I compare this card to tomorrow's Carbink card before for sure using this card.  With that being said, this is not a card you can start the game with, this card is mainly for its Ability, just putting one in your deck and keeping it on the bench the whole time, that way it could greatly disrupt your opponent's strategy.  And, if you do have to put this card into the active Pokemon spot, if you have three energy cards on it, Stone Edge is a good move and if you flip a heads when flipping a coin, a well above average move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  I would like to give this card an above average rating but since it requires three energy cards to attack and on the slower side I am only giving it an average rating, but I would recommend this card to those building a fighting type deck and looking for some defensive strategy to go against your opponent.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Carbink from the Fates Collide set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second Carbink from this set. Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

my answer could be weird but it full explaining to answer.
first carbink can only be found in xy-roaring skies, xy-flash fire and xy-fates collide. but only in xy-fates collide carbink is fighting type. in xy-roaring skies and flash fire there is in both 2 carbink (jewel type). so if u want to know about only the fighting type, then only xy-fates collide has 2 carbink cards fighting type. if all types then the 3 fates collide roaring skies and flash fire has them. so true if only fighting and false if all types.
