Seel -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Seel XY Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Seel from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Seel is a basic, water type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Seel does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Growl, for one colorless energy card, this move reduces any attacks by the defending Pokemon during their next turn by 20.  Seel's second move is called Headbutt, for two energy cards this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Seel is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Dewgong, 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 be used as a starter type Pokemon in a water type deck, even though it can't do any damage for one energy card.  You can use this card as a starter because when you use Growl, it will more than likely prevent all damage from your opponent's weaker Pokemon at the beginning of the game, and during your second turn you can then use Headbutt.  So, does this card belong in a water type deck?  It is definitely usable in a deck, but only doing 20 damage maximum a turn, really makes you prefer to either leave this card out of a deck or use it with Dewgong.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Dewgong, this is an average Basic Pokemon card overall.  I like that this card has well above average HP and two moves.  I am a little disappointed this card can't do damage for only one energy card, but both moves that this card has are solid.  So overall, this card could work as a starter type Pokemon in a water type deck.
