Greetings, people of the Pokémon world! Today I bring to you Alolan Marowak CRI, one of the snazzy Alolan formes. Hope you enjoy this fiery new Pokémon!
Marowak is typically a ground type, who’s main weakness is grass. In Alola, there are quite a few grass type Pokémon, so Marowak adapted to be super effective against them, becoming a fire type.

I love Alolan Marowak, and I am very glad that Pokémon has decided to make a nice card of it. I believe that this card is not meant to be used as an attacker, but as a setup card. It is a stage 1, which is slightly inconvenient, and only 100 HP, but it’s first attack makes up for that. For no energy whatsoever, it attaches fire energy equal to the number of energy on your opponent’s active to any of your Pokémon. For free. No energy. With decks like Volcanion and Ho-oh roaming about, this card can truly be helpful. It has a nice weakness to water, and the worst retreat cost, but that doesn’t really matter, as it will probably be one-shot anyway. All in all I would say that this is a deck specific support, but good support at that. I give it three out of five stars.
