Hawlucha -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Hawlucha Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Hawlucha from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Hawlucha is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 80, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Hawlucha's Ability is called Sudden Cyclone and says that when you play this card from your hand onto your Bench, you may have your opponent switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Hawlucha just has one move called Acrobatics, this move requires 2 colorless energy cards to use and does 20 damage plus 20 more damage for each heads you get when flipping two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Hawlucha 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, there are really two strategies you can try with this card.  The first strategy would be to include trainer cards in your deck or to use a Pokemon's Ability so that you can continuously move Hawlucha from your hand to your bench, and back to your hand again.  By doing this, you can make your opponent rotate their active Pokemon every turn and spread damage around in that way.  The other strategy with this card would be to include 4 Double Colorless energy cards in your deck and putting one on Hawlucha to start the game, you could then do up to 60 damage a turn for only one energy card and do this amount of damage the first turn of the game.  The first strategy with this card would only require 1 Hawlucha card, the second strategy would be best executed with 4 of them.

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.  In my opinion, this card gives you a lot of possibilities when deck building, and for this reason it gets an above average rating from me.  This card fits in all type decks, and can do major damage every turn if you have some luck, or it can aid in the spreading of attacks.  Either way, when deck building, this is a card worth considering.
