Pokemon Card of the Day: Flygon ex EX Dragon Frontiers
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Flygon ex from the EX Dragon Frontiers set. This is a stage 2, Psychic type Pokemon card, Flygon is a Psychic type because it is a delta species type Pokemon card in this set, also this card is an ex card so if it gets knocked out your opponent gets to draw two prize cards instead of one. Flygon ex has an hp of 150, no weakness, no resistance, and a retreat cost of two colorless energy cards. Flygon's Poke-Body called Sand Damage spreads damage very well, this Poke-Body states that as long as Flygon ex is your active Pokemon, put one damage counter on each of your opponent's benched Pokemon between turns. This Poke-Body works amazingly well with Flygon's only move called Psychic Pulse which takes 3 energy cards, 1 colorless and 2 Psychic, this move does 80 damage which is already better than average for 3 energy cards and besides doing the damage to your opponent's active Pokemon, it also does 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon that has any damage counters on it. So as far as strategy would go it is pretty straightforward since Flygon only has one move, but if I was going to use this card it would be absolutely necessary for me to have a card in my deck that spreads damage, i.e. a Pokemon card that does 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon at once, that way I would set up Flygon ex on my deck and then use that other Pokemon card to get damage on all my opponent's Pokemon then I would either get that Pokemon knocked out or retreat it and put it Flygon ex, that way since all your opponent's Pokemon has damage on it you can pretty much do 20 hp damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon each turn. I would rate this card a 5 out of 5 because it is amazing period. A super high hp and no weakness make this card unstoppable, pair this card with a spread damage card and this card will clean house on just about every Pokemon card out there. So thanks for reading today's review of Flygon ex from the ex Dragon Frontiers set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Blastoise ex from EX FireRed/LeafGreen.
