Marill -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Marill Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Marill from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Marill is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Marill does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Bubble Drain, for one fairy energy card this move does 10 damage, plus it heals 10 damage from Marill.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Marill is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Azumarill, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, this card could work well as a starter type Pokemon in a fairy type deck.  You could get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game and attack for only one energy card, and assuming your opponent is playing a weaker starter Pokemon as well, Bubble Drain would remove the damage done by your opponent, thus giving you plenty of time to set up your benched Pokemon.  So, while I wouldn't go all in on this card without using Azumarill, in a majority fairy type deck, I could definitely see using 1 or 2 of these in it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Azumarill, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  Outside of just being limited in what it can do, with only one move that does 10 damage a turn, this card is solid overall, with a good HP, low retreat cost, and a quick move that heals damage from Marill.  So like I mentioned above, if you're building a fairy type deck, this card is worth consideration.
