Hitmonchan ex -- EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon Card Review

Hitmonchan ex EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Hitmonchan ex from the EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon Card set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Just like the other two ex cards I've reviewed from this set, this card doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Steady Punch which does 10 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin all for one fighting energy card. Hitmonchan's second move is called Sky Uppercut which does 50 damage for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless. This move is not affected by resistance so it will always do at least 50 damage.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This is an ex card that is quite weak to some of the newer cards made today, neither move can do much damage but that is why these cards can't be used in the current format. The Illustrator for this card is Hiromichi Sugiyama. I like the artwork on this card quite a bit, I like the gradient on the background of the holo, it goes back and forth between purple and yellow and since I'm a Vikings fan this card is definitely the right colors. I am quite sure I have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $5, on Professor-Oak it sells for $4.08 and on PokeOrder it goes for $7.50. This is the cheapest of the ex cards from the ex set I've reviewed so far.

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

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Hitmonchan ex from the EX Ruby and Sapphire set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Lapras ex from the same set.
