Rayquaza ex -- EX Dragon Pokemon Card Review

Rayquaza ex Pokemon Card EX Dragon Set
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rayquaza 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 type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to water and fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Rayquaza doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Spiral Growth and for one colorless energy card you may flip a coin until you get tails, for each heads you get you may search your discard pile for an energy card and attach it to Rayquaza. Rayquaza's second move is called Dragon Burst which takes two energy cards, one each of fire and electric and does 40 damage times the number of energy cards you discard when you discard all of either your electric or fire type energy cards.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
Even back in the day when these cards were playable I don't think I would have used this card in battle. It takes too many energy cards to do any damage and can't attack that often. Plus you'll need to put this card in a fire and electric type deck which isn't a very popular deck type. With that being said the artwork on this card isn't bad, I like the background and how Rayquaza is flying through the picture. The artwork was done by Hikaru Koike. I do have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $10, on Professor-Oak it sells for $11.95 and on PokeOrder it goes for $37.49.

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