Weavile -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Weavile Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weavile from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Weavile is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Weavile's Ability is called Tear Away and says that as often as you'd like during your turn you may move a Pokemon Tool card attached to 1 of your Pokemon back into your hand.  Besides the Ability, Weavile has one move called Slash that does 40 damage for two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Weavile is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Sneasel into play (I reviewed Sneasel from this set yesterday) and then evolve Sneasel into Weavile.  If you read yesterday's review of Sneasel, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  It had a solid HP, low retreat cost, and even though it was limited with only one move, that move could do 10 damage a turn and had the potential to prevent all damage done to it.  So knowing this about Sneasel and looking at this Weavile card, the main reason you'd want to play this line is a deck is to take advantage of Weavile's Ability.  Therefore, you can potentially use only 1 or 2 of the same Pokemon Tool card and instead of having to retrieve it from the discard pile after using it on the same Pokemon the whole time, you can continuously move it back to your hand and put it on another Pokemon.  So again, if you plan on using Pokemon Tool cards in your deck, this line is a must use, otherwise, this Weavile card is average, doing 40 damage a turn for two energy cards.

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 Steam Siege set.  Both Sneasel and Weavile from this set are very solid overall and get a 3 out of 5 rating from me.  I could see using a 1-1 line in a deck, mainly for Weavile's Ability, but both Pokemon have solid attacks and can easily be used in the active Pokemon spot.
