Walrein -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Walrein Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Walrein from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Walrein is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Walrein does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Powder Snow, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 60 damage, plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.  Walrein's second move is called Big Tusk, this move requires four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, and does 120 damage minus 10 damage for each damage counter on Walrein.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Walrein is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Spheal into play and then evolve it into Sealeo before you can evolve Sealeo into Walrein, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of those Pokemon cards are average at best so they could be used without their final evolution.  But if I were to use this Pokemon family at all in a deck, I would use all three of the Pokemon and try and use Walrein the most in my deck, I would use a 1-1-1 line of Spheal, Sealeo, and Walrein, try setting it up on the bench, then putting Walrein into the active Pokemon spot and using Big Tusk first since it would do 120 damage right away and keep using that move until it did about 80 damage, then I would start using Powder Snow.  If you do use this line in your deck, make sure to have a way to retreat Walrein for free, because it has an extremely high retreat cost.

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 Flashfire set.  This card has a good hp, and two solid moves, but the retreat cost is way too high on this card for me to want to use it a ton in a deck, plus Big Tusk may end up not doing any damage after awhile.  So overall, this entire Pokemon family gets a 3 out of 5 rating from me, it is an average line to use in a deck, so if you're building a water type deck, all of the cards in this line are average and should be considered.
