Ampharos ex -- EX Dragon Pokemon Card Review

Ampharos ex Pokemon Card EX Dragon SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ampharos ex from the EX Dragon set. This is a stage 2, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Ampharos' Poke-Body is called Conductivity which says that as long as Ampharos ex is in play whenever your opponent attaches an energy card to one of their Pokemon from their hand to one of their Pokemon, put one damage counter on that Pokemon. Besides the Poke-Body Ampharos has one move called Gigavolt which takes three energy cards, one electric and two colorless and does 40 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin, but if you get a tails the defending Pokemon is paralyzed instead of doing extra damage to it.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This would have been a great ex card to get into play as soon as possible before your opponent would be able to set up their other Pokemon, that way any time they attach an energy card to their Pokemon they do damage to their own Pokemon. This card would have worked perfectly in a spread damage type deck. Even if you would have played this card in the active Pokemon spot it isn't a bad card doing a fair amount of damage or doing a special condition and a little less damage. I really like the artwork done on this card which was done by Ryo Ueda, Ampharos is already one of my favorite Pokemon and this card makes it seem even cooler. I have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $6, on Professor-Oak it sells for $7.20 and on PokeOrder it goes for $22.50. We'll have to see how this card compares to the other ex cards in this set in the next few days..

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Dragonite, Golem, Kingdra, Latias, Latios, Magcargo, Muk, and Rayquaza.
