Metagross ex – EX Hidden Legends Pokemon Card Review

Metagross ex Pokemon Card EX Hidden Legends SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Metagross ex from the EX Hidden Legends set. This is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to both fire and fighting type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to grass type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Metagross doesn’t have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Metal Reversal which takes two energy cards, one each of colorless and metal and does 40 damage to the defending Pokemon, before attacking you may choose to attack the defending Pokemon or have your opponent put in a different Pokemon and attack that Pokemon instead. Metagross’ second move is called Extra Comet Punch which takes four energy cards, two each of metal and colorless and does 50 damage, the next turn Extra Comet Punch does 100 damage instead of 50.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
If this card were playable today I would definitely use it. I really like the move Extra Comet Punch being able to do 150 damage every two turns. You just have to be patient and set up Metagross on your bench, as soon as it gets four energy cards on it put it in the active Pokemon spot and start knocking out your opponent’s Pokemon. This card also wouldn’t be bad in a spread damage type deck because you can use Metal Reversal numerous times to get 40 damage on almost all your opponent’s Pokemon and then put in a Pokemon card that does let’s say 20 damage to all of your opponent’s benched Pokemon. The artwork on this card is okay, I like the background colors but I don’t like how Metagross is basically facing you straight on, not at an angle at all, the artwork makes Metagross look too simple. I do have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $7, on Professor-Oak it sells for $20.64 and $22.49 on PokeOrder.

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

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Metagross ex from the EX Hidden Legends set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Ninetales ex from the same set.

you cant do 150 because it says it does 50 + 50 more damage not + 50 damage each turn
