Groudon ex -- EX Hidden Legends Pokemon Card Review

Groudon ex Pokemon Card EX Hidden Legends SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Groudon ex from the EX Hidden Legends set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Groudon's Poke-Body is called Mark of Antiquity which says that as long as Groudon is your active Pokemon, Kyogre and Rayquaza ex can't attack. Besides the Poke-Body, Groudon has two moves, the first move is called Rock Tumble which takes two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage. Groudon's second move is called Crushing Mantle which takes three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, and does 50 damage plus 10 more damage for each energy card you choose to discard from your hand.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
For a Legendary EX Pokemon card this card isn't too great, which is probably why this isn't a very expensive ex card to buy. It doesn't do much damage unless you want to discard energy cards so if for some reason you are able to use ex cards in battle this isn't one I would suggest. As far as the artwork goes I don't like it at all. It looks like Groudon is a shark and this artwork reminds me of Sharpedo more than Groudon. The colors give the card an almost emo look. I do have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $9, on Professor-Oak it sells for $16.54 and $22.49 on PokeOrder.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Kyogre, Metagross, Ninetales, Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Vileplume, and Wigglytuff.
