Gyarados ex -- EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card Review

Gyarados ex Pokemon Card EX FireRed and LeafGreen SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gyarados ex from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Gyarados doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Twister which does 40 damage for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and besides doing the damage, you may flip two coins, for each heads you may remove one energy card from the defending Pokemon, however if you flip two coins this move does nothing. Gyarados's second move is called Dragon Rage which does 100 damage for five energy cards, two water and three colorless.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This card definitely reminds me of Blastoise ex from this set, both are water type cards and both look really cool with the dark blue colors on the card. Other than the artwork being great, this card isn't too great attack-wise, it can do 100 damage but you'll have to wait awhile and it has a little less hp than other Pokemon with attacks this high because Gyarados is a stage 1 Pokemon not stage 2. I actually don't think I have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $10, on Professor-Oak it sells for $25.00 and $44.99 on PokeOrder.

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

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gyarados ex from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the first of two Mr. Mime ex cards from the same set.
