Pokemon Card of the Day: Azumarill (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Azumarill from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, this is a stage 1, water type Pokemon with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost. Just like Arcanine from yesterday, Azumarill doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Waterfall and this move does 40 damage for 2 water energy cards. Azumarill's second move is called Bubblebeam and this move requires 3 energy cards, 2 colorless and 1 water and does 60 damage plus it lets you flip a coin and if it is heads the defending Pokemon is now paralyzed, this effect is desperately needed for this card since it does have a low hp to be able to last more than a turn or two. So as far as strategy I would try and stock Azumarill up with energy cards on the bench and then switch it in and use Bubblebeam and hope for a heads so the defending Pokemon can't attack the next turn. But even if you don't have 3 energy cards on Azumarill, Waterfall isn't that bad of move and more than likely you'll have 2 energy cards on this card because you should have at least one card on it from having Marill in play. So as far as rating goes I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it is pretty average, its hp is average for a stage 1 Pokemon card and both of its moves don't do anything to spectacular. So thanks for reading today's review of Azumarill from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another HGSS card.
