Kyogre ex – EX Hidden Legends Pokemon Card Review

Kyogre ex Pokemon Card EX Hidden Legends SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kyogre ex from the EX Hidden Legends set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Kyogre has the same Poke-Body as Groudon from yesterday. It is called Mark of Antiquity and says that as long as Kyogre ex is your active Pokemon, Groudon ex and Rayquaza ex cannot attack. Besides the Poke-Body, Kyogre has two moves, the first move is called Water Arrow which takes two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage to one of your opponent’s Pokemon. Kyogre’s other move is called Super Tidal Wave and for three energy cards, two water and one colorless it does 50 damage plus 10 more damage for each energy card in your hand, after doing the attack you must shuffle all the energy cards in your hand back into your deck.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
Just like yesterday, for a Legendary EX Pokemon card this card isn't too great, 20 damage to any of your opponent’s Pokemon isn’t a very powerful move and why would you want to use Super Tidal Wave if you have to move all your energy cards in your hand to your deck? As far as the artwork goes I like this card quite a bit better than Groudon ex. The artwork which is done by Hikaru Koike looks good, it makes Kyogre look like the massive Pokemon it is and yet the card almost relaxes you because of the red and blue coloring of the holographic pattern. I do have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $6, on Professor-Oak it sells for $16.63 and $26.24 on PokeOrder.
