Vulpix -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Vulpix Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vulpix from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Vulpix is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Vulpix does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Confuse Ray, for two fire energy cards this move does 20 damage, plus if you get a heads when flipping a coin, this move confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vulpix is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Ninetales, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, Basic Pokemon like Vulpix are looked at as starter type Pokemon, since this card can't attack for one energy card, it fails this test.  So to me, the only way I would recommend using Vulpix in a deck is if you plan on using Ninetales, and even then, I would set up the line on the bench.  Ideally, you would use a Stadium card or some type of Ability to have all energy be fire type energy, and then put one Double Colorless energy card on this card to make it able to attack for only one energy turn.  I guess, at worst, this card is still playable in a deck, it just takes a turn longer than you want to start attacking, but when it is set up, does do average damage plus inflicts a special condition.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Ninetales, this is an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, the big knock on this card is that it can't attack for one energy card, but when set up, this card is solid overall, and if you're desperate enough to use it on its own, or have it in the active Pokemon spot before using Ninetales, this card can do some damage and potentially prevent damage on Vulpix and do even more damage to your opponent's active Pokemon.

Hello, i think that you selected a tricky question because vulpix evolves into ninetails with the fire stone, so vulpix don't evolves in a determinated lvl.

The "normal" Vulpix evolves with a fire stone, at any level you want. The alolan one evolves with an ice stone, as joe correctly said.

Vulpix doesn't evolve with level it evolves with a fire stone at any level you like! If your in the Alola region it's a ice stone instead.
