Koffing -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Koffing XY Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Koffing from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Koffing is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Koffing does not have an Ability and its only move is called Foul Gas.  This move, requires two psychic energy cards to use and does 10 damage, plus the move poisons the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin, or confuses it, if you get a tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Koffing is a Basic evolution Pokemon with a Stage 1 evolution in Weezing, it is always a good idea to use the full line together, however, there isn't a Weezing in this set, since there wasn't one in the Base Set, but it first appeared in the Fossil set.  Because of this, I will be reviewing Koffing on its own, but the newest set to feature Weezing would be Fates Collide.  So, on its own, I would not recommend using Koffing in any deck, regardless if it is a psychic type deck or not.  Because this card can only do a maximum of 10 damage per turn and it can't attack for one energy card, this card is slow overall, and weak as an attacker.  If you're looking for a similar card to this one to use in your deck, yesterday's card, Drowzee, can attack for only one energy card, plus you can use Confuse Ray on that card, which is nearly identical to Koffing's Foul Gas move.  So, the only way I could see using Koffing in a deck is if you are using it with Weezing, even then, your best bet would be to set up the line on the bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Weezing, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card overall, and one I would not recommend using in a deck, especially on its own.  Although this card does have a solid HP, and an okay move, it is too slow and too weak to be any good in the TCG, and you should definitely look elsewhere for a Basic psychic type Pokemon to use in your deck.
