Dragonite ex -- EX Dragon Pokemon Card Review

Dragonite ex Pokemon Card EX Dragon Set
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragonite ex from the EX Dragon set. This is a stage 2, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to colorless type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to both grass and fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Dragonite's Poke-Power is called Call for Power which says that often as you like during your turn you may move an energy card attached to one of your Pokemon to Dragonite ex. Besides the Poke-Power, Dragonite has two moves, the first move is called Dragon Wave which takes two energy cards, one water and one electric and does 70 damage, however after using this move you must discard one water and one electric energy card from Dragonite. Dragonite's second move is called Giant Tail and for four colorless energy cards it can do 120 damage, however if you get a tails when you flip a coin this move doesn't do anything.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
As powerful as Dragonite usually is, I actually don't like this card much, move-wise that is, both moves have the potential to do a lot of damage but one is only a fifty-fifty shot and the other move will impede your momentum at least a turn. If for some reason I could use this card, I would try setting up most of my other Pokemon first and if I got desperate late, use Call for Power and quickly put energy cards on Dragonite and use Giant Tail. I do like the artwork on this card which was again done by Ryo Ueda, I especially like the background design and the fact Dragonite is shot from underneath it so it looks extremely big. I have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $10, on Professor-Oak it sells for $28.23 and on PokeOrder it goes for $39.99. I'm guessing this card is one of the more expensive ex cards from this set.

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