Stoutland -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Stoutland Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stoutland from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Stoutland is a stage 2, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Stoutland's Ability is called Sentinel and it says that as long as Stoutland is your active Pokemon your opponent can't use any Supporter cards from their hand.  Besides the Ability, Stoutland just has one move entitled Wild Tackle.  This move requires three colorless energy cards and does 90 damage.  However when using this move you must flip a coin, if you get a tails, Stoutland does 20 damage to itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Stoutland is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lilliput into play and then evolve it into Herdier before you can evolve Herdier into Stoutland, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Neither Herdier or Lillipup are that good, so neither should be in your deck if you don't plan on using Stoutland with it.  With that being said, I think Stoutland should be used mainly for its Ability, but because this Ability is only in effect when Stoutland is in the active Pokemon spot you'll have to move this Pokemon into that spot when you can so your opponent will stop using Supporter cards.  I would try and evolve this Pokemon line on my bench, because Herdier and Stoutland both can do damage to themselves, so if you have to use these Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot too much, Stoutland's 140 hp may seem like much less.  Your only option when Stoutland is in the active Pokemon spot is to use Wild Tackle every turn and hope for some heads, also you'll want to hope that your opponent heavily relies on Supporter cards so this card will be much more effective.  Because Stoutland has such a high retreat cost, I would use this card until it gets knocked out, I wouldn't waste retreating it.  I would not use this Pokemon line in my deck, but if you choose to I would only use a 2-1-1 line of Lillipup, Herdier, and Stoutland in any type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card. The card has a decent hp, an okay Ability, and a powerful move with consequences.  This card doesn't have to be in a deck and especially taking into account Stoutland's previous evolutions, I would not recommend using this line at all.  Overall, I would give this whole line a 2 out of 5 rating, they just don't cut it for my taste.
