Stoutland -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Stoutland Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stoutland from the X and Y 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 does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bite Off, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage however if the defending Pokemon is an EX Pokemon, this move does 120 damage instead of 60.  Stoutland's second move is called Wild Barking, this move requires four colorless energy cards and does 80 damage plus 20 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Stoutland is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lillipup 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.  Both of these cards are average (Lillipup) or below average (Herdier) so both can potentially be used in a deck without Stoutland.  Because the first two Pokemon in this family are decent enough, I wouldn't include many Stoutland cards, definitely not more than 2, in my deck.  I say this because Stoutland has a much higher retreat cost than Herdier and Lillipup, and both of its moves are pretty slow to develop.  I myself would use a 3-2-1 line of Lillipup, Herdier, and Stoutland in a deck, I would try and use Lillipup and Herdier in the active Pokemon spot at the beginning of the game because both cards can do a fair amount of damage pretty quickly, and I would try and set up another line that ends with Stoutland on the bench and make sure to have three energy cards on it, so I could prevent my opponent from using an EX card, because if they choose to use one, I would immediately put Stoutland into the active Pokemon spot and use Bite Off every turn.

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 from the X and Y set that is a very good defensive card against EX cards.  Not only would this card be able to knock out all EX cards in 2 moves but it may prevent your opponent from playing them altogether.  As much as I like this aspect of Bite Off, I'm just giving this card an average rating because neither move this card has is that great on its own, and this card does have a higher retreat cost.  Overall, I think this line is pretty average and should be considered for most decks.  I would give this Pokemon family a 3 out of 5 rating, individually I gave Lillipup and Stoutland 3 out of 5 ratings and Herdier a 2.
