Hey everybody! It’s time to Play Ball with the Steam Siege cards Foongus and Amoonguss. These two mushroom Pokemon are very dangerous, because of their poisonous spores.
Foongus is a white mushroom-like Pokémon with a cap that looks quite similar to a PokéBall. It has stubby, digit-less arms, a large pink mouth, and pinprick-like dark eyes. It uses the PokéBall-like pattern on its head to lure people and Pokémon in grassy areas, then releases a cloud of poisonous spores to defend itself. It moves by either hopping or turning on its side and rolling on its cap.
Foongus 40HP [G]
[ABILITY] Play Ball
When you play this Pokémon from your hand onto your Bench, you may put 3 Poké Ball cards from your discard pile into your hand.

Weakness: [F] x2

Overall, I feel that this Pokémon is relatively weak. I would use this card in most decks if it searched for any 1 “Ball” card, instead of 3 PokéBalls. I give this Pokémon a 1.5 star.
Amoonguss is a mushroom-like Pokémon with a large, light-colored Poké Ball designed cap with warts. It also has a huge gray, stem-like body, fierce looking eyes and a large pink mouth. Amoonguss wields two Poké Ball-like shields. It uses the Poké Ball-like patterns on its arms to lure in prey, though it doesn’t work too well in most cases. Amoonguss is a carnivore which can be found mainly in long grass, as only their mushroom cap head protrudes from it, generally close to water.
Amoongus 90HP [G]
[C] Crazy Spore
Your opponent’s Active Pokémon is now Confused and Poisoned.
[G][C] Strange Reaction 30
If your opponent’s Active Pokémon is Confused, it is now Paralyzed.
Weakness: [F] x2
Retreat Cost: [C][C]
If you like Special Conditions, this Pokémon should be your choice. Able to Confuse and Poison the first turn, and then Paralyze the next, this Pokémon can be really annoying. I give it a 3 star.
