Marill -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Marill Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Marill from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Marill is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to lighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Marill does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Rollout which requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage.  Marill's second move is called Water Gun which requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Marill is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Azumarill, I would recommend keeping Marill on your bench and evolving it into Azumarill before moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  If you have to put Marill into the active Pokemon spot, it will take a bit before it can attack since it requires at least two energy cards to attack.  Obviously you'll want to use Water Gun because it does more damage, you'll just have to wait until you get three energy cards on it to use that move.  I would not recommend using Marill in a deck on its own.  Tomorrow I'll be reviewing Azumarill so if I like that card you'll probably have to use this card with it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  What I do like about this card is that it has 2 moves that both do damage, and a it has a high hp.  However, this card has a high retreat cost, and both of its moves require a lot of energy cards and for the amount they require, the moves don't do much.  So I would not recommend using this card in a deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Marill from the Boundaries Crossed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Marill's stage 1 evolution in Azumarill, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Pikachu's Vacation where he's with the 'other' group in the park. Pretty sure he's part of the crowd that's being noisy and is in a water race.
