Raikou ex -- EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua Pokemon Card Review

Raikou ex Pokemon Card EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Raikou ex from the EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua set. This is a basic, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Raikou doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Dazzle Blast and for one electric energy card does 10 damage and it also confuses the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Raikou's other move is called Lightning Tackle which does 70 damage for three energy cards, two electric and one colorless, however if you get a tails when you flip a coin this move does 20 damage to Raikou.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
I really liked yesterday's Legendary Dog artwork done by Rya Ueda, but today I do not like Raikou's artwork at all, the card looks too cartoony to me, and too dreamy. This card doesn't make Raikou seem very powerful at all. There is just too much going on in the picture for me to like this card. I do like however how this card can do 70 damage every turn no matter what, at the time this card had to have been quite powerful with Lightning Tackle. I don't think I have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $8, on Professor-Oak it sells for $25.11 and on PokeOrder it goes for $35.99. So even though I don't think this card looks the best, the price is one of the higher ones from this set.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Blaziken, Cradily, Entei, Sceptile, Suicune, and Swampert.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Raikou ex from the EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Sceptile ex from the same set.
