Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sealeo from the Flashfire Pokemon Card set. Sealeo is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Sealeo does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Rest, for two colorless energy cards this move allows you to heal 60 damage from Sealeo, however it then makes Sealeo asleep. Sealeo's second move is called Ice Ball, this move requires three energy cards, two water and one colorless, and does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sealeo is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Spheal into play (I reviewed Spheal from this set yesterday) and then evolve Spheal into Sealeo. Sealeo does have a stage 2 evolution in Walrein that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Sealeo is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review of Spheal, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card. The card had an above average hp, solid move, but was a little slower and had a high retreat cost. So if you're already using Spheal in your deck, I would really consider using 1 Sealeo card in your deck as well, because Sealeo can do 40 more damage than Spheal can, and if you have Spheal in the active Pokemon spot already and have two energy cards on it, you could evolve it into Sealeo, put one more energy card on it and use Ice Ball every turn. Sealeo's other move, Rest, is better suited for it if you want to evolve it into Walrein, that way if you had Sealeo in the active Pokemon spot for awhile and it had some damage on it, you could use Rest one turn and the next turn evolve Sealeo into Walrein.
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. This card has an average hp, high retreat cost, and two solid moves. Nothing really stands out to me with this card, so unless you are planning on using this entire family in your deck, I probably wouldn't use this card at all, and would only use 1 maximum if I was using the Spheal card from the set already. Together, both Spheal and Sealeo would get a combined 3 out of 5 rating from me, the same rating both received individually.
