Pokemon Card of the Day: Kabutops ex (EX Sandstorm)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kabutops ex from the EX Sandstorm set. This is a stage 2, water type Pokemon with an hp of 150. It has two x2 weaknesses to both grass and electric type Pokemon, no resistance type and an average retreat cost of 2 colorless energy cards. Kabutops doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Hydrocutter which does at maximum 120 hp damage for 1 colorless energy card. This move does 40x damage times the number of heads you flip equal to the number of energy cards attached to Kabutops but you can only flip the coin 3 times maximum. Kabutops' second move is entitled Spiral Drain and this move takes 4 energy cards, 2 each of fighting and colorless. This move does 70 hp damage and allows you to take 2 damage counters off of Kabutops. As far as strategy goes I would use Spiral Drain the most if I had enough energy cards attached to Kabutops plus that move removes 2 damage counters every time too so that makes Kabutops' hp even better than it already is with its 150 hp. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it is pretty average for an ex card since it has two x2 weaknesses and no resistance. Also it doesn't have a Poke-Power of Poke-Body but it does have two pretty decent moves and it has potential to knock out Pokemon in one hit with Hydrocutter. So thanks for reading my review of Kabutops ex from the EX Sandstorm set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Flygon ex from EX Dragon Frontiers.
