Marill -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Marill Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Marill from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Marill is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Marill does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tackle, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Marill's second move is called Rollout, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of colorless and fairy, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Marill is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Azumarill, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed either of those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, this card is almost the perfect starter type Pokemon card to use for a fairy type deck.  It can attack quickly, has an above average HP, and has two moves to use when attacking.  The only downfall of this card is its somewhat high retreat cost, but if you're using Rollout while attacking, it shouldn't be a problem.  If I were building a fairy type deck, I could see myself using up to 2 of these in a deck and trying to use one of them as a starter Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Azumarill, this card an average, but very solid Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, you can't ask for much more from a starter type Pokemon, it has an above average HP, and two moves, both average moves that can do damage.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Marill from the Primal Clash set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Marill's stage 1 evolution Azumarill, which will be the first of two consecutive reviews of this Pokemon, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
