Marill -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Marill Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Marill from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Marill is a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Bubble, for one Water Energy card, this move Paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when flipping a coin.  Rollout is the second move on this card, for two Colorless Energy cards, this move does 20 damage.

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, even though this card has two moves, a solid HP, and a low retreat cost, I wouldn't use it in a deck, mainly because Bubble is based off of a coin flip, and you can do a lot more damage than 20 for a Double Colorless Energy on lots of other cards.  If you do plan on using Azumarill in your deck, this isn't a bad start to the line, since you have a chance at preventing your opponent from attacking the next turn while you wait to get Azumarill into play.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Azumarill this is a below average Basic Pokemon from the Burning Shadows set.  Like I mentioned above, this card does have some positives on it, like a solid HP and low retreat cost, but without using Azumarill in your deck, there is no reason to use this Basic Pokemon card.
