Marowak -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Marowak Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Marowak from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Marowak is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Marowak's Ability is called Bodyguard and says that it prevents all effects of attacks, excluding damage, done to you or your hand from your opponent's Pokemon, plus it removes all existing effects.  Besides the Ability, Marowak just has one move called Bonemerang, for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, this move does 60 damage times the number of heads you get when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Marowak is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Cubone into play, there is not a Cubone in this set but there is one in the BREAKthrough set, then evolve Cubone into Marowak.  If you're building a deck and think you're going to face lots of decks that have their main strategy being inflicting special conditions, this card is a staple to include in your deck, at least a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family.  This card is also necessary if you use a move that puts your active Pokemon to sleep, as you could use Bodyguard to wake it up each turn.  So I do think that Bodyguard is a very powerful Ability and is the main reason that this card should be used.  Bonemerang is a solid move, if you have some luck, so if you want to put this card into the active Pokemon spot, try and attach a Trick Coin trainer to this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to well above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  All depending on the deck you're facing, like I said above, Bodyguard is the reason you would want to use this card, and it can greatly affect how good your deck is.  So, if you're building a deck, consider using a 1-1 line of this family to counter your opponent's strategy of inflicting special conditions.
