Articuno ex – EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card Review

Articuno EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Articuno ex from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Articuno's Poke-Power is called Legendary Ascent and says that when you place Articuno ex from your hand to your bench you may switch it with your active Pokemon for free and move any water energy cards attached to your active Pokemon to Articuno. Besides the Poke-Power, Articuno has one move called Cold Crush which does 50 damage for three energy cards, one colorless and two water. Besides doing the damage, you can choose to discard an energy card from Articuno, if you choose to do this, your opponent must discard an energy card attached to their active Pokemon as well.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
I really like the artwork of all three legendary birds I will be reviewing in the next few days, they have similar artwork to the Regi's from EX Hidden Legends. Ryo Ueda did a great job on the artwork and I always liked having this card in my EX collection because it looked so cool. Strategy-wise, this card is extremely straight-forward since it only has one move, however I wouldn't put in on the bench until your active Pokemon is about to get knocked out, that way you can put Articuno into play and move it into the active Pokemon spot immediately, thus preventing one of your Pokemon from feinting.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $8, on Professor-Oak it sells for $11.40 and $37.49 on PokeOrder.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Blastoise, Charizard, Clefable, Electrode, Gengar, Gyarados, Mr. Mime x2, Venusaur, Moltres, and Zapdos.
