Cinccino 89/124 -- 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 second of the two Cinccino cards that I've reviewed 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 Sweeping Cure, for one colorless energy card this move heals 90 damage from one of your benched Pokemon.  Cinccino's second move is called Knock Away and for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

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 few days, and evolve Minccino into Cinccino.  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, if you can work out a way to freely retreat Cinccino in and out of the active Pokemon spot, it would be worth it to use a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family so you can heal 90 damage from one of your benched Pokemon and keep a powerful Pokemon, like an EX from getting knocked out.  Just like yesterday's Cinccino card, this card would benefit from a Trick Coin trainer to have a better chance at doing 60 damage a turn with Knock Away.  After reviewing both Cinccino cards from this set, neither is too great, I like this one a little better just because I find that both moves on this card could be very useful, and this card at least can do damage every turn, even if you get a tails when flipping a coin with Knock Away.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  This card is very solid overall, with a low retreat cost, average HP, and two good, quick moves, add in the fact this card can be used in any type deck, and it is one to consider when deck building.  Even though this card is average, I can only give this line of Minccino and Cinccino a 2 out of 5 rating combined.
