Charizard ex -- EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card Review

Charizard ex Pokemon Card FireRed and LeafGreen SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Charizard ex from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set. This is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 160. It has a x2 weakness to both water and electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Charizard's Poke-Body called Energy Flame says that all energy cards attached to Charizard are fire energy type. Besides the Poke-Body, Charizard has two moves, the first move is called Slash which does 50 damage for three colorless energy cards. The second move is called Burn Down and does 200 damage for 5 fire energy cards, however after using this move you must discard 5 fire energy cards attached to Charizard.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This card has the most powerful base damage in the TCG today, the 200 damage that Burn Down does is incredible, however you'll have to wait a long time to be able to use it and once you use it you'll have to wait a long time again to use it. I would recommend putting 10 energy cards on this, if you have the time and extra energy cards in your deck, that way you'd be able to use Burn Down two turns in a row and hopefully win the game after that. The artwork on this card is okay, even though this is one of my favorite cards, I like it more for the fact that Charizard is my favorite Pokemon than because of the artwork. Charizard looks really weird if you look close at the card, Charizard's body looks mutilated. But with that being said this was definitely a powerful ex card and like I said one of my favorite ex cards of all time. I have never pulled this card from a pack but I have two of these in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $100, on Professor-Oak it sells for $181.94 and $229.99 on PokeOrder.

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

I'd like to clarify...
Charizard ex's attack isnt the strongest, because Rayquaza C Lv.X can do Final Blowup which does 200, tying them up, thus changing the fact that Charizard ex having the strongest attack.
(if its not Rayquaza C than make it Rayquaza Lv. X)
