Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wigglytuff from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set. Wigglytuff is a stage 1, fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Wigglytuff does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Expand, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage and any damage done to Wigglytuff during your opponent's next turn is reduced by 30. Wigglytuff's second move is called Double Slap and for three colorless energy cards this move does 60 damage times the number of heads you get when flipping two coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wigglytuff is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Jigglypuff into play (I reviewed Jigglypuff from this set yesterday) and then evolve Jigglypuff into Wigglytuff. If you read yesterday's review of Jigglypuff, you'll know that I thought it was an above average Basic Pokemon card and one I would recommend using as a starter type Pokemon since it used only colorless energy cards to attack and could attack for one or two energy cards plus had an above average HP. So knowing this about Jigglypuff and looking at this Wigglytuff card, this card follows suit in that it can be used in any deck since both moves that this card has require colorless energy cards. If you plan on doing a lot of damage with this card you'll want to use a Trick Coin trainer to potentially do 120 damage a turn with Double Slap, otherwise you could use a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family and depend on Expand for two energy cards and spend the remaining energy on setting up your benched Pokemon. Overall, when building a deck, this line is one that should definitely be considered, especially since it is a fairy type card that can be used with any type energy.
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. Other than depending on coin flips for Double Slap, this card is good overall, with a higher than normal HP and two pretty good moves. Together with Jigglypuff from this set, I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, it is nothing spectacular but very solid and can work in many decks.
