Kabutops ex -- EX Sandstorm Pokemon Card Review

Kabutops ex Pokemon Card EX Sandstorm SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kabutops ex from the EX Sandstorm set. This is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150. It has two x2 weaknesses to grass and electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This card doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Hydrocutter which takes one colorless energy card and does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip the amount of coins equal to the number of energy cards attached to Kabutops up to three energy cards. Kabutops' second move is called Spiral Drain which takes four energy cards, two each of colorless and fighting and does 70 damage and allows you to remove 2 damage counters from Kabutops.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
One thing I noticed about this card right away that it is a water type card yet it doesn't require any water energy cards to any of its attacks. Spiral Drain is a pretty good move doing 70 damage and removing damage counters and making Kabutops' 150 hp seem even higher. This card was illustrated by Ryo Ueda and is very well done. This card's artwork reminds me of Aerodactyl ex from this set, since the background is orange/red and black and then Kabutops looks quite menacing. I also like how this card is blue since it is a water type but everyone knows Kabutops is normally a fighting type Pokemon. I have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $8, on Professor-Oak it sells for $8.86 and on PokeOrder it goes for $15.99. This card sells for more than the other ex cards from this set on eBay, the other sites it is about the same.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Aerodactyl, Aggron, Gardevoir, Raichu, Typhlosion, and Wailord.
