Electabuzz ex -- EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon Card Review

Electabuzz ex EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electabuzz ex from the EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon Card set. This is a basic, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Electabuzz doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Thundershock which does 10 damage for one electric energy card and you may flip a coin when using this move, if you get a heads the defending Pokemon is now paralyzed. Electabuzz's other move is called Quick Attack which takes three energy cards, two electric and one colorless and does 40 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This is an ex card that surprises me it was made since Electabuzz isn't known as a strong Pokemon and it shows since this card has only 90 hp. I do like the artwork on this card a lot better than Chansey, the Illustrator of this card is Hikoru Koike. I like the dark holographic pattern on this card and how Electabuzz which is yellow really stands out against the black. If you could actually battle with this card neither move would be too great especially with such a low HP. I actually don't think I have this ex card.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $5, on Professor-Oak it sells for $8.50 and on PokeOrder it goes for $11.25.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Chansey, Hitmonchan, Lapras, Magmar, Mewtwo, Scyther, and Sneasel.
