Play Ball! With Foongus and Amoonguss

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.

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.

[G] Ram 10

Weakness: [F] x2
Resistance: [NONE]
Retreat Cost: [C]

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.

[G][C] Strange Reaction 30
If your opponent’s Active Pokémon is Confused, it is now Paralyzed.

Weakness: [F] x2
Resistance: [NONE]

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.
