Pokemon Card of the Day: Gengar ex (EX FireRed LeafGreen)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Gengar ex from the FireRed LeafGreen set. This card has 150 hp which is pretty good for an ex card. It does have two types of Pokemon that it has a x2 weakness to though, Psychic and Darkness, which could make Gengar's hp seem a little lower. But to make up for this it does have a resistance of -30 hp to fighting and normal type Pokemon. It has a two colorless energy retreat cost which probably is around average for these types of cards. Gengar ex doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves that are pretty good. The first move is called Poltergeist and takes two energy cards, one colorless and one Psychic, this move does 40 damage plus 10 more for each trainer card in your opponent's hand. So not only does this move do 40 damage for only two energy cards but you can look and see what your opponent has in their hand. Gengar's other move is called Prize Count and this move takes 3 energy cards, 2 Psychic and 1 colorless. This move does 60+ damage, it does 100 damage if you have more prize cards left than your opponent or 60 otherwise. So as far as strategy goes, if I could get out Gengar ex early in the game I would use Poltergeist as the first move so I could see what my opponent is planning to do. But otherwise I would use Prize Count since you should be able to knock out most Pokemon in two moves or less. So thanks for reading my review and stay tuned the Pokemon Card of the Day tomorrow.

Seems like it could work pretty well with my Gengar Lv.X... Nice review, too bad I don't have any way of getting that card though!
