Volcanion -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Volcanion Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Volcanion from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Volcanion is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Volcanion does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Power Heater, for one fire energy card this move does 20 damage, plus it allows you to move 2 fire energy cards from your discard pile and put one each on two of your benched Pokemon.  Volcanion's second move is called Steam Artillery and does 100 damage for three fire energy cards.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Volcanion is a basic Pokemon with no evolution forms, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, on its own, this card is a must have for any fire type deck out there.  You can use four of these in a deck and use them as starter type Pokemon since Power Heater only requires one energy card, or you can set them up on the bench and do 100 damage every single turn.  What I like best about this card is the fact it helps set up your benched Pokemon while attacking and that you don't have to worry about discarding fire energy cards since you can get them back eventually anyway.  So again, if you're building a fire type deck, I would highly recommend this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is one of the best cards I've reviewed from the Steam Siege set so far.  There really aren't any negatives to this card.  It has a high HP, low retreat cost, and two great moves, one for early in the game and one for later in the game, you really just can't beat not using this card in a fire type deck.
