Electrode ex -- EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card Review

Electrode ex Pokemon Card EX FireRed and LeafGreen SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electrode ex from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set. This is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Electrode's Poke-Power is called Extra Energy Bomb which says that you can choose once during your turn do discard Electrode and all cards attached to it (basically knocking out Electrode, thus your opponent is able to take a prize card), once Electrode is discarded you may search the discard pile for five energy cards and attach them to any of your Pokemon in any way you like. Besides the Poke-Power, Electrode has one move called Crush and Burn which takes two energy cards, one each of electric and colorless, and does 30 damage plus 20 more damage for each energy card you choose to discard from any of your Pokemon in play.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
The EX FireRed and LeafGreen set had to have some of the best ex cards for competitive play, Electrode ex would have been very useful in play because of its Poke-Power and its ability to quickly set up a Pokemon that needs a lot of energy cards to attack. So if you're able to use this card, you'll want to use Crush and Burn as long as possible and then either retreat Electrode or choose to knock it out and attach 5 energy cards from your discard pile to one or many of your Pokemon. The artwork on this card is good and bad in my opinion, I don't look the look on Electrode's face, it looks too shifty, I do like the lightning bolts in the background though. I believe I pulled this card out of a pack a long time ago.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $5, on Professor-Oak it sells for $9.00 and $22.49 on PokeOrder.

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