Latios ex -- EX Dragon Pokemon Card Review

Latios ex Pokemon Card EX Dragon Set

Pokemon Card Overview:
To everyone that celebrates Christmas, Merry Christmas everyone! With that being said, today's Pokemon Card Review is of Latios ex from the EX Dragon set. This is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to colorless Pokemon, a -30 resistance to both grass and fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Latios doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Energy Stream which takes one colorless energy card and does 10 damage, plus you get to flip a coin when you use this move, and if you get a heads you may search your discard pile for an energy card and attach it to Latios ex. Latios' other move is called Luster Purge which takes three energy cards, one each of grass, eletric, and colorless and does 100 damage, however you must discard 3 energy cards attached to Latios after this move.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
It is very fitting I'm reviewing this card on Christmas, many years ago when EX Dragon was the new set out, I opened EX Dragon packs for Christmas and pulled this exact card which I still have today. Just like Latias from yesterday, this is a one-hit wonder kind of card doing 100 damage one turn and then not being able to do the move again for a few turns. Just make sure to have this card in a deck with grass and electric type Pokemon. I like the artwork on Latios better than Latios. The artwork was done by Ryo Ueda.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $7, on Professor-Oak it sells for $11.89 and on PokeOrder it goes for $29.99.

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