Aromatisse -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Aromatisse BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aromatisse from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Aromatisse is a stage 1, fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aromatisse does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Heavy Perfume, for one fairy type energy card this move confuses the defending Pokemon and puts 6 damage counters on it for confusion instead of 3, if they get a tails when flipping a coin when trying to attack.  Aromatisse's second move is called Hug and for one fairy type energy card this move does 30 damage, and it makes your opponent's active Pokemon unable to retreat during its next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aromatisse is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Spritzee into play (I reviewed Spritzee from this set yesterday) and then evolve Spritzee into Aromatisse.  If you read yesterday's review of Spritzee, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card, and one that I would not recommend using in a deck, mainly because it had a low HP, and the only move it had depended on how much damage you had on Spritzee, so this card could do very little early in the game and would easily get knocked out in one turn late in games.  So knowing this about Spritzee and looking at this Aromatisse card, the first thing you'll notice is that this card is fast on the attack, so you could easily be doing 30 damage a turn two turns into the game, so you could use a 1-1 line of this family in a fairy type deck.  You could also use Heavy Perfume early in games and if the opponent tries to attack and fails when confused it could knock itself out.  So I would definitely consider using just a 1-1 line of this family in a fairy type deck, but it isn't one that needs to be in any deck out there.

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 BREAKthrough set.  I like that this card has an average HP, low retreat cost, and two quick attacking moves.  The only downside with this card is that it won't be so useful later in games and that if you use this card with the Spritzee from BREAKthrough, you need to set the line up on the bench because overall I can only give this line a 2 out of 5 rating.

While I highly doubt that this is the correct question (considering that this is a Granbull question on an Aromatisse blog post), the first English expansion to include a Granbull card was Neo Genesis (Uncommon: 37/111).
