Amaura -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Amaura Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Amaura from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Amaura is a restored (Basic), 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. Amaura does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Stampede, for one water energy card this move does 20 damage.  Amaura's second move is called Aurora Beam, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Amaura is a Restored Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Aurorus, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own of course you'll have to get the card into play using the Trainer called Sail Fossil, this trainer card allows you to search the bottom 7 cards of your deck and if you find an Amaura there you can put it onto your bench.  Other than that, you can't get Amaura into the active play area.  So if you choose to use this card in a deck, you'll need to include at least 1 Sail Fossil trainer for each Amaura you plan on using.  For me, it is an easy decision because I wouldn't use any Amaura in my deck unless I planned on evolving it again.  Stampede is an above average move, but Aurora Beam does too little damage for the amount of energy cards it requires and with such a high retreat cost, you can't use Amaura just for its Stampede move.  So if you do decide to use a Sail Fossil and an Amaura card in your deck, make sure to get a few energy cards on this card before you put it into the active Pokemon spot, or be prepared to attach three more energy cards on Amaura when in the active Pokemon spot to retreat it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, this is a below average Restored Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  I do like that this card has a high HP, and two moves, but this card is a Restored Pokemon, which makes it harder to use, it has an extremely high retreat cost, and only one of Amaura's moves is that great.
