Stoutland -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Stoutland Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stoutland from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Stoutland is a Stage 2, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Stoutland does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Ferocious Bellow, for three Colorless Energy cards this move does 50 damage, plus it makes the move your opponent uses during their next turn do 50 less damage.  Stoutland's second move is called Hammer In, for four Colorless Energy cards, this move does 120 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Stoutland is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lillipup into play and then evolve it into Herdier before you can evolve Herdier into Stoutland, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall.  Lillipup had a solid HP, and could do up to 40 damage per turn, but of the two moves it did have, only one could do damage, and that move required two Energy cards to attack.  Herdier was similar to Lillipup in that it had a solid HP and a low retreat cost, but Herdier's one move was slow and under-powered, the only reason you'd want to use the card was for its Ability, which you could utilize from the Bench.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this Stoutland card, if you want to use this entire line in a deck, I would set it up on the Bench, therefore utilizing Herdier's Ability and making it so Stoutland can attack as soon as it gets into the Active Pokemon spot, also, I would recommend using 4 Double Colorless Energy cards in your deck, so Stoutland could do 120 damage for only two Energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  With the caveat of using Double Colorless Energy cards as opposed to Basic Energy cards, this card is very solid overall, able to do above average damage for both of its moves and having the potential to fit into any type deck, as well as be a more defensive card with its Ferocious Bellow move.  Altogether, with Lillipup and Herdier from this set, I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating, although Stoutland is solid, the first two Pokemon in this line weigh the entire line down too much.
