Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Marowak from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Marowak is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Marowak does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, its first move is called Bone Lock and for one fighting energy card, this move does 30 damage plus makes your opponent's active Pokemon unable to retreat during their next turn. Marowak's second move is called Vortex Chop and for three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, this move does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if the defending Pokemon has any resistance.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Marowak is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Cubone into play (I reviewed Cubone from this set yesterday) and then evolve Cubone into Marowak. If you read yesterday's review, I think Cubone is an excellent starter Pokemon so it should probably be in your active Pokemon spot when you evolve Cubone into Marowak, once you have Marowak in the active Pokemon spot, I would add one more energy card to Marowak so you have three, then use 60 damage every turn, I would make sure to have Marowak in the active Pokemon spot if the defending Pokemon had any type of resistance on it, that way Vortex Chop could do 90 damage every turn. The only time I would use Bone Lock is if I didn't have enough energy cards on Marowak to use Vortex Chop, or you need to make sure the defending Pokemon can't retreat the next turn so you can knock it out and win the game. I would recommend using a 2-1 line of Cubone and Marowak in a fighting type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card. This means that both the Pokemon in this line from Dragons Exalted are both above average and I would definitely recommend using this line in your deck. What I specifically like about this card is that it has a good hp, low retreat cost, and two great moves, Bone Lock is quick and can pack a wallop, Vortex Chop takes some time but with some patience and your opponent having a resistance, this card is a well above average move.
