Typhlosion ex -- EX Sandstorm Pokemon Card Review

Typhlosion ex Pokemon Card EX Sandstorm setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Typhlosion ex from the EX Sandstorm set. This is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 160. It has two x2 weaknesses to water and fighting 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 Ring of Fire and does 40 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one fire. After using this move the defending Pokemon is burned and can't retreat until after your opponent's next turn. Typhlosion's second move is called Split Blast and for five energy cards, three fire and two colorless, it does 100 damage or 50 damage to each of your opponent's two defending Pokemon if they happen to have two, you only need to discard one energy card when using this move.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
Out of the ex cards I've reviewed so far, I think Typhlosion ex can do the most damage most consistently, it can do 100 damage every turn as long as you have an energy card in your hand to attach to it each turn. This ex card also has the highest hp of any of ex cards I've reviewed recently. The artwork on this card is done by Hikaru Koike. I like the background pattern but I don't like the illustration of Typhlosion, to me it is an awkward angle. I do have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $8, on Professor-Oak it sells for $10.80 and on PokeOrder it goes for $24.99. I would imagine the reason for this card selling for a bit more than others on eBay would be that Typhlosion is a more popular Pokemon since it is a starter Pokemon and more people are familiar with it.

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

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