Cobalion -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Cobalion Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cobalion from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Cobalion is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with a HP of 120, it has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Cobalion does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Quick Guard, for one metal energy card, this move prevents all damage done to Cobalion from your opponent's Basic Pokemon during their next turn.  Cobalion's second move is called Revenge Blast and for two metal energy cards, this move does 30 damage, plus 30 more damage for each Prize card your opponent has taken.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cobalion 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, since this card only requires metal type energy to attack, you're going to have to use it in a majority metal type deck.  You could either use this card as a starter type Pokemon, get it into the active Pokemon spot and use Quick Guard every turn to give yourself time to set up your benched Pokemon while the opponent can't attack, or the other option would be to set this card up on the bench and put it into the active Pokemon spot when you are about to lose the game, therefore having Revenge Blast do 150 to 180 damage a turn for only two energy cards.  Either way, this card has some potential, and should definitely be considered for a metal type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  Like I mentioned a couple of times above, if you're building a metal type deck, this card is definitely one to consider, it has a high HP, and two solid moves, and the card can be used almost any time throughout the game.
