Masquerain -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Masquerain Primal Clash
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Masquerain from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Masquerain is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Masquerain does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Spiral Gyration, this move requires one grass energy card to use and it confuses the defending Pokemon and makes you switch Masquerain out of the active Pokemon spot for one of your benched Pokemon.  Masquerain's second move is called Air Slash, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use and does 50 damage, however you must discard an energy card attached to Masquerain when using.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Masquerain is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Surskit into play (I reviewed Surskit from this set yesterday) and then evolve Surskit into Masquerain.  If you read yesterday's review of Surskit, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card, it was just limited in what it could do having only one move that could do 10 damage and it only had 50 HP, which is a little low.  So knowing this about Surskit and looking at this card, I would not recommend using either of these two Pokemon in a deck.  I say this because Masquerain has a lower HP just like Surskit and neither move that Masquerain has is that great.  If you did decide to use this Pokemon line in a deck, I would only use a 1-1 line.  I would try and get Masquerain into the active Pokemon spot early, then use Air Slash first, discard an energy card, then the next turn use Spiral Gyration, confuse the defending Pokemon and switch Masquerain out of the active Pokemon spot.  This card really isn't that bad of a card, I am just not a fan of it since both moves have negatives about them.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card does have a low retreat cost and two moves which is nice, but the card has too low of an HP for my liking and neither move that this card has is that great, one move makes you switch Masquerain out, the other makes you discard an energy card.  So combined and individually, I would give this Pokemon family from the Primal Clash set a 2 out of 5 rating.
