Dewgong -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Dewgong Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dewgong from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Dewgong is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Dewgong does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Freezing Breath, for one water energy card this move does 20 damage, plus this move also puts the defending Pokemon to sleep or paralyzes it depending on whether you get a heads or tails when flipping a coin.  Dewgong's second move is called Aurora Beam and for four energy cards, three colorless and one water, this move does 100 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Dewgong is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Seel into play (I reviewed Seel from this set yesterday) and then evolve Seel into Dewgong.  If you read yesterday's review of Seel, you'll know that I thought that card was an average card overall, it had an above average HP, and a quick attacking move, but its higher retreat cost made it better used with its evolution in Dewgong.  So knowing this about Seel and looking at this Dewgong card, this card follows Seel's pattern of having a high HP, this card can also attack quickly, but unlike Seel, this card has the ability to do major damage every turn.  So if you're building a water type deck, I could see merit to using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family, getting Seel in the active Pokemon spot to start the game and then evolving it into Dewgong and using Freezing Breath until you get four energy cards on this card to do Aurora Beam every turn.  With Freezing Breath and early in the game, it should give you plenty of time to get Dewgong and your benched Pokemon set up.

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 Fates Collide set.  This card is very close to a 4 rating but because Aurora Beam requires so much energy and Dewgong's retreat cost is high, this card only gets a 3 rating.  But like I said above, this line of Pokemon should definitely be up for consideration when building a water type deck, together they get a 3 out of 5 rating from me.
