Azumarill -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Azumarill Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Azumarill from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Azumarill is a Stage 1, fairy and water type Pokemon card, with a HP of 100. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Azumarill does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Play Rough, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Azumarill's second move is called Bubble Drain, for three energy cards, two fairy and one colorless, this move does 80 damage, and you're able to heal 30 damage from Azumarill.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Azumarill is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Marill into play (I reviewed Marill from this set yesterday) and then evolve Marill into Azumarill.  If you read yesterday's review of Marill, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Although it only had one move that could do 10 damage total, I liked that the card could heal damage from itself and attack to only one energy card.  So knowing this about Marill and looking at this Azumarill card, if you're building a fairy type deck, I definitely think it is fine to include at least a 2-2 line of this family in your deck.  You could use Marill as a starter type Pokemon or set this line up on the bench.  Either way, you'll want to eventually use Bubble Drain every turn, doing above average damage every turn and healing damage from Azumarill.  You could also attach a Double Colorless energy card to this card and attack for only one energy card, and do up to 60 damage a turn.

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.  I like that this card has an above average HP and two solid moves.  This card can fit well into most decks out there because it mainly requires colorless energy cards to attack.  I like that this card can dole out major damage as well as heal damage from itself.  Together with Marill from this set, I would give both cards a 4 out of 5 rating, combined, these cards are better than used individually.
