Wailmer -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Wailmer Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wailmer from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Wailmer is a basic, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Wailmer does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Lullaby and for one colorless energy card, it says to flip a coin and if you get a heads the defending Pokemon is put to sleep.  Wailmer's second move is called Water Gun which does 30 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one water.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Wailmer has a stage 1 evolution in Wailord, there isn't much incentive to put Wailmer into the active Pokemon spot before it evolves into Wailord.  I say this because Wailmer only has an hp of 100, and can do 30 damage per turn whereas Wailord has an hp of 200 (if you're using the Wailord card from this set) and can do a lot more damage than 30 per turn.  I would keep Wailmer on the bench and attach as many water energy cards as possible to this card, you'll know why tomorrow after I review the Wailord card.  If you have to put Wailmer into the active Pokemon spot, depending on how many energy cards you have on Wailmer will determine what move you can use.  I would not use Wailmer in a deck on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  Just like Gyarados from yesterday, this card has a very good hp for a Pokemon card, a basic Pokemon card in this case, yet I am not giving it a high rating, basically the hp is the only good thing on this card.  Lullaby is only a 50-50 chance of putting a Pokemon to sleep and Water Gun is way too slow and cannot do nearly enough damage to warrant putting three energy cards on it.  So I would say if you're not going to use Wailord in your deck, do not use this card in your deck either.
