Scyther ex -- EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon Card Review

Scyther ex Pokemon Card EX Ruby and Sapphire SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Scyther ex from the EX Ruby and Sapphire Pokemon Card set. This is a basic, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Once again this card doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Agility which takes one grass energy card and does 10 damage plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, all effects of an attack on Scyther the next turn are prevented. Slash is Scyther's second move which does 50 damage for three energy cards, two grass and one colorless.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
If I remember correctly, I pulled three of these ex cards in the EX Ruby and Sapphire box I opened on YouTube. I do like Scyther as a Pokemon but this isn't one of my favorite cards, the artwork done by Ryo Ueda isn't anything special, the background is mostly silver which is quite bland and the drawing of Scyther doesn't make it look very menacing.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $6, on Professor-Oak it sells for $9.18 and on PokeOrder it goes for $22.50. I have no idea why PokeOrder is charging such a high price for this card, it seems like this card is quite cheap on the other two sites I look.

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

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

At what point do all my really old cards become incompatible with these?
