Latias ex -- EX Dragon Pokemon Card Review

Latias Pokemon Card EX Dragon Set
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Latias ex from the EX Dragon set. This is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to colorless type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to both psychic and fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Latias doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Hypnoblast which does 10 damage for one colorless energy card. Also if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is asleep. Latias' second move is called Mist Ball which requires three energy cards, one each of colorless, fire, and water and does 100 damage, but you must discard a fire and water energy card when you get done using Mist Ball.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
It isn't often you see a Pokemon card that can do a damage that is more than its HP, but today's card does exactly that. I would save Latias for a one-hit wonder late in the game, put it in, use Mist Ball and then retreat it out the next turn. Just make sure to include this card in a fire and water type deck. This card was illustrated by Ryo Ueda, even though this card is red, white, and blue I don't really like the artwork on this card. I do have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $10, on Professor-Oak it sells for $14.99 and on PokeOrder it goes for $29.99. So this is a fairly inexpensive ex card for a Legendary Pokemon.

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

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Latias ex from the EX Dragon set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Latios ex from the EX Dragon set.
