Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Avalugg from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set. Avalugg is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Avalugg does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. Its first move is called Frost Barrier, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 40 damage, plus during your opponent's next turn, any damage they do to Avalugg is reduced by 20. Avalugg's second move is called Shatter, this move requires four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, and does 90 damage, however you must discard any Stadium card in play.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Avalugg is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bergmite into play (I reviewed Bergmite from this set yesterday) and then evolve Bergmite into Avalugg. If you read yesterday's review of Bergmite, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card even though the hp on the card was good and it had two moves, the main reason I thought it was a poor card and one that shouldn't be used on its own is because neither move it had was very good. Because of this, if you decide to use Avalugg in your deck, I would only use a 1-1 line of Bergmite and Avalugg. I would recommend setting up this line on the bench, since both Pokemon are very slow and not moving Avalugg into the active Pokemon spot until it has four energy cards on it, that way you can use Shatter every turn and would be able to retreat if need be. I personally wouldn't use this card or this line in my deck, but it isn't the worst line you could choose to use in your deck because Shatter is a pretty good move.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set. I do like this card's Shatter move that it can do 90 damage a turn every turn, but Frost Barrier isn't a very good move in my opinion plus this card has an extremely high retreat cost, but the high hp on this card evens that out a bit. So overall, I would give the line of Bergmite and Avalugg from the Flashfire set a 2 out of 5 rating, individually Bergmite was a 2, Avalugg a 3.
