Pokemon Card of the Day: Aggron ex (EX Crystal Guardians)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Aggron ex from the EX Crystal Guardians set. This is a stage 2, metal type ex card with an hp of 150. Unfortunately Aggron has two x2 weaknesses, it has a weakness to both fire and fighting type Pokemon but it does have a -20 resistance to grass type Pokemon. Another bad thing about this card is that it has an extremely high retreat cost of four colorless energy cards which most likely means that you won't be able to retreat Aggron and if Aggron does get knocked out your opponent gets to take two prize cards instead of one since this card is an ex card. Aggron's Poke-Body called Intimidating Armor is extremely nice, it says that as long as Aggron ex is your active Pokemon your opponent's active Pokemon as long as it is a basic Pokemon can't attack or use its Poke-Body and/or Poke-Powers so the faster you get Aggron ex into play the better this Poke-Body will be and the less damage your opponent will be able to do against you. Aggron also has two pretty good moves the first move is called Split Bomb which does 30 damage to two of your opponent's Pokemon for only 3 colorless energy cards I like this move because not only does it spread damage but this move only requires colorless energy cards so you can basically use this move no matter what deck you're using Aggron ex in. Aggron's other move is called Mega Burn and this move does mega damage, it does 100 damage for four energy cards, two each of colorless and metal, but on the downside you can't use Mega Burn the next turn. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5, I really like its Poke-Body and two moves but the reason I didn't give this card a five is because it has two x2 weaknesses and its type is metal which isn't very popular and unfortunately you can't use Mega Burn twice in a row. So thanks for reading today's review of Aggron ex from the Crystal Guardians set stay tuned for tomorrow's review of a Deoxys card, any suggestions for which one to review?
