Pokemon Card of the Day: Deoxys ex (EX Emerald)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Deoxys ex from the EX Emerald set. This card is a basic, Pyshic type, ex Pokemon card with an hp of 110. Deoxys has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon and has no resistance type. However Deoxys does have a pretty low retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Deoxys' Poke-Power is called Form Change and this power lets you once per turn search your deck for another Deoxys ex and switch it with this card and transfer all damage and energy cards with it to the new card, place this card on the top of your deck and shuffle it afterwards, you can only use one Form Change Poke-Power per turn. Deoxys' only move is entitled Fastwave and this move does 50 damage no matter what for 3 colorless energy cards. As far as strategy goes it only has one move so you'll have to do that move if you have 3 energy cards on Deoxys but with its Poke-Power you can easily stack your deck with different forms of Deoxys and then switch the Deoxys out you have as your active Pokemon and switch one in with a better move. I am going to rate this card a 3 out of 5 because even though you can switch out this card whenever, all the Deoxys cards still aren't that great, they are all just about average, also Deoxys' only move is about average for 3 energy cards, the average is probably 60 hp damage but since Fastwave isn't affected by weakness or resistance it will always do 50 damage. So overall I would say this is an average card and if I were to use this card in my deck I would definitely use many more Deoxys cards in the deck too so I could utilize its Poke-Power. So thanks for reading today's review of Deoxys ex from EX Emerald stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Kabutops ex from EX Sandstorm.
