Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Whimsicott from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set. Whimsicott is a stage 1, fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Whimsicott does not have an Ability and it only has one move. The only move that this card has is called Light Steps, for one fairy energy card this move does 40 damage and allows you to move an energy from Whimsicott to one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Whimsicott is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Cottonee into play (I reviewed Cottonee from this set yesterday) and then evolve Cottonee into Whimsicott. If you read yesterday's review of Cottonee, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card, mainly because it had a lower than average HP but also the fact that it was limited in what it can do since it only had one move that did 10 damage. So knowing this about Cottonee and looking at this Whimsicott card, this card really follows the same pattern, it is very limited in what it can do having only one move. Although this line could work in a fairy type deck, since you could use a 1-1 line and set it up on the bench, keep attaching energy cards to Whimsicott just to be able to get another energy card into play each turn, then move Whimsicott to the active Pokemon spot, use Light Steps, move an energy card off of Whimsicott to set up your benched Pokemon and retreat it for free a turn or two later. Unless you're specifically building a fairy type deck, this card has no use in a deck, and even if you are, this card and line isn't that great overall.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set. I like that this card has a solid HP, free retreat cost, and can attack quickly. However, I don't like the fact that this card only has one move, and can't do that much damage every turn. Overall with Whimsicott from this set, which I gave a 2 rating, I would give these cards combined a 2 out of 5 rating, they aren't terrible, but you can definitely find better cards to use out there.
