Cinccino 88/124 -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Cinccino Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cinccino from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two Cinccino cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Cinccino is a Stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Cinccino does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Covet, for one colorless energy it makes your opponent show you their hand and you get to choose a card from their hand and put it on the bottom of their deck.  Cinccino's second move is called Last Resort, for one colorless energy card, this move does 60 damage, however you must flip a coin, if tails the move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cinccino is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Minccino into play, there are actually two Minccino cards in this set which I've reviewed the past two days, and evolve Minccino into Cinccino.  Additionally, there are two Cinccino cards in this set.  If you read my reviews of Minccino from this set you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall, the first Minccino card was really poor, it couldn't do any damage when attacking and the only move it had may not have any effect at all, the second Minccino card from this set was a little better, being able to do above average damage but it did have a below average HP, which made it not that good as a starting type Pokemon.  So knowing this about the first Pokemon in this line, and looking at this Cinccino card, I wouldn't recommend using this line unless you have four Trick Coin trainer cards in your deck and plan on using one with this card so that you have a good chance at doing 60 damage for only one energy card.  If you're not using a Trick Coin trainer, I wouldn't recommend using this card or line in a deck, maybe tomorrow's Cinccino card will make this line better.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  I like how this card has an average HP, two moves, and can fit into any type deck, but because this card's main move is based on a coin flip and Minccino isn't very good, I cannot recommend using this card in a deck, and combined I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating.
