This is a Christmas Promo that I plan on printing out and handing out at my league during our next session. Sort of a late Christmas present. BUT, I have a bad track record with catching errors, so I thought I'd put it up here and let you folks give it the once over.

Personally, I like {R} Weakness on an Articuno, but {M} fits as well.

90 HP and 1 Retreat is extremely broken. Drop the HP and/or up the Retreat Cost (80 and 2 would probably be a perfect HP/Retreat combo).

As for the final sentence of the second attack, I'd word it "This attack does 80 damage minus 10 damage for each damage counter placed in this way." A clearer wording for the same effect.

I'll leave the stats as is, and I did toy with the thought of wording the sentence like that, so I'll change that.

That's a little broken... I mean, dealing a total of 80 damage for [WWW] is unheard of, even in this age of huge attacks. I'd say raise the cost to [WWCC] or [WWWC] to make that 2nd attack more believable (as even Gyarados needs [WCCC] to deal 80 to the ACTIVE).

Ok, took the suggestions into consideration. I changed the wording on the last attack, added another water energy to the attack, and lowered the Hit Points by 10.

The weakness is a little quirky, but otherwise it looks balanced.
